Description Technical Specs
A bass pickup cover – The range of basses differed slightly from the guitars as it is possible to fit two pickup covers – one plastic version, that sits on the bobbins of the pickup, protecting the actual electronic component.

This Pickup cover actually sits above the pickup and the strings. Some argue that it is designed to “reflect” the pull from the pickups, giving a fatter tone.

Debuting at the birth of the 2 pickup bass, the cover ran throughout the entire life of the bass until the Management buyout period, and finally was discontinued on the standard models in 1983. It was however, still available on the Vintage re-issues that were released at the same time, so whilst strictly speaking, the cover is a thing of the past, they still turn up very regularly.
