They ain't wives unless you play them in bed sometimes!

The one on the left, what are those two doohickeys where the forward pickup should be?

Nice basses...

tiller2, those are finger rests. Some players like to hook a thumb on one (hence the top one), and some players like to rest their fingertips on the rest (the bottom one) and play with their thumb.

Watch closely and you'll see many bass players using a pickup ring for their finger rest too.

Another method (which I prefer) is to use the E string as a thumb rest.

Y'kin also park yer choon gum on the rosewood thumb rests.
