Fender has been for years one of the top tier brands out there, so much that, most of their models will never go out of style, will never be replaced by the newest novelty. They present a range of instruments from reissued classics to modern twists for every taste. This item is also all about taste, flavour. Instantly, when applied sending an instrument down memory lane for those who know the company's background or spicing things up for someone who wants a touch of difference. Thomann is also to be praised for stocking this item, keeping in mind costumers that may otherwise have been forgotten and would never find a replacement for such an item.
....I put this on a Lake Placid Blue, Squier, Classic Vibe 50s Precision bass, and I think the bass now looks even BETTER than it did before (and it looked PRETTY GOOD without it !)....I personally LIKE to have some CHROME on my guitars.....after all, many guitar and bass designs (Fenders, Gibsons, Rickenbackers...) were heavily influenced by the CAR DESIGNERS of the 40s, 50s, and 60s,...and what is a 1956 Cadillac WITHOUT CHROME ??? well....it ain't a REAL Caddy, whatever it may be. The Pickup Cover also functions as a thumb rest,... quite practical. Looks Good....Feels Good....IS GOOD. I dig it, man.
