Purely decorative, And it's actually available on every bass and guitar model, I think. It's the 3PB (3 Piece Body) option, and can be the thin black layer like you see on the icon bass, our our can be a layer that is a little bit thicker of contrasting wood like what was on the anniversary edition LB basses and DC400W of yore.
