Can I Ask

Recommended Posts

are those chrome covers on vintage fender basses just asthetic; or is it suposed to capture/pickup the sound better being trapped in this metal box?

ive never played one with it on; and i was thinking of making a decorative wood one; but it felt like it was intrusive and an accident waiting to happen;

which got me wonderin, why the hell is it there in the first place?

my thinking with covers is that you wanna hide this piece of metal/plastic from abstructing a beutiful piece of wood; but to throw a piece of chrome twice the size ,throws that theory out the door;

and i know leo designed these 35 years or whatever before anyone thought of putting wood over instead, just curious;
