Jazz Bass: To Cover on Not to Cover

Decisions, decisions.

Ok, so I'm not a bass player. I'm not even much of a guitar player. So when I make decisions about hardware etc, I usually go on aesthetics more than anything else. For my Jazz bass I need to decide on hardware - to cover or not to cover? Those bass players out there - do these huge-arse chrome covers make the jazz bass less playable?

50s retro cool to a more playable instrument?

Personally I've always liked them - I think that they give the bass a real 50s retro vibe. But will I hate playing it in the end? What do you guys out there think?
