Sounds like it. They don't currently offer one like that. Sounds like a nice bass! Hope you like it.

this is something that i've been curious about for a while as i've never played many fender basses (mostly squiers when it happens) but... what's that angled thing on the pickguard between the pickup and the neck? a bolt on finger rest?

Back in the days when bass players used to play with only their thumb, that was where you'd put your other fingers. Weird, I know.

Well, that's how a lot of people do it now, but I think it's pretty ugly.

I just use the pick ups as thumb rests.

Yeah, that's where most of the lacquer has worn off of the body, is right above the pick up.. It's strange, though. Where my arm rests on the body, it's glossier than the rest of the body.
