Default Anyone know what this “repair” might be?

I’m having trouble with the pickup in this guitar - getting static and crackling noises from it - so I stuck my mirror in there to se what it was, and it seems to be an old LB6, so I figure I’ll just have to replace it. But this brown strip has me confused - it seems like a glue job, possibly to cover up some bridge plate damage?, but it covers only 5 strings, and extends over to where the pickup wire extends, and it seems like it is not well adhered -

I haven’t pulled the strings and gotten in there yet, but thought I’d ask if anyone’s seen anything like this? Thoughts about removing, or ??
