He's looking for the cover, the part a lot of people take off, but that he wants on.

oh, i get it. yeah, that was the first thing i took off when i got mine. i was actually surprised it was still there being 26 years old and well played. i guess the guy who had it before me didn't mind it so much.

Well, some people like having them on. It basically comes down to personal playing style. On my copy, I use the cover as a handrest while picking, and when using my fingers, I use it as an anchor. I anticipate I'll do the same when I'm finished working on my 4001.

for me, it was right where my fingers/pick naturally go, so it was really in the way. seems like if i was to put my thumb on it as an anchor, i'd be fingering too close to the bridge, but like you said, it's all about personal preference.

Yeah, a lot of people tend to pick or pluck right over the pickup. When using a pick, no matter what kind of bass I'm using, I tend to pick a little more towards the neck, and when I use my fingers, I play very close to the bridge.

I'd like to get one too, if they are available. I never see black handrests on eBay. Maybe RIC still has them and can spare one or two?

Have you considered getting a standard one (chrome) and fine sanding it a little to roughen it up, and spraying it flat black?
I have one for my 1986 4003 mapleglo with black trim and hardware but no way I'm parting with it. If I ever wanted to sell the bass, though not likely, I'd want to include that part with it.
