The actual distance the bridge pickup was moved is .40” (just under 1/2”). It was done just for cosmetic reasons….as you said, to fit under the bridge cover. Tonality had nothing to do with it! The tonal effect when soloed is a bit more of a midrange tone. Many people associate the 70’s bridge PU tone with Jaco, but he played on 60’s instruments. Roger
