Sometimes when playing the A D or G string I'll rest my thumb on the E string. Or when I'm playing a 5-string, I'll use the low B string as an anchor when playing the E A D & G. Other times... I'll just use the pickups. The neck pickup when I want a warm fat tone, and the bridge pickup when I want more bite and agression in my tone. If you want more thumb placement options you can always consider buying a thumbrest, not too expensive, and will give you many more options as to where to place your thumb.

Thumbrest :

Cheers, and good luck
