SF II's did not come with thumb and/or finger rests. Thus any SF II that has them was either a conversion from a SF I or a post-factory modification.

The earliest basses had the rests evenly spaced between the sweet spot pickup and the neck ("original"). They remained in the same location after the pickup moved to the neck position and then finally migrated to an offset location. All three configurations occurred during the Early era (an approximately in that chronology). The offset position occurred in the Vintage and 70's era. The original configuration is also observed in the GSR and Newark Street eras.
