The lights in studio b were long fluorescents mounted in the high ceiling. Hence the dominant light direction was downwards. In the photo of jim sitting on the chair note the shadows of the chair legs are thus almost directly below the chair. This overhead lighting is also reflected in the relative brightness of Chet's hand and the darker tones underneath him of what he is sitting on. Hence the white object above the strings cannot be a reflection from where the observer/photo taker is placed. It is most likely a pickup - it was fairly common practice to mount fixed pickups in this location.
