I've heard that some fretless bass would have a lower nut height than fretted bass, but the T Franklin fretless I got has no nut height. The "real nut" is the ebony part past the nut at the headstock side. You can see a groove chewed into the ebony in the picture. And if i'm using the hipshot d tuner i guess its going to chew in more For those who have the same bass, do you have a similar issue? I've only got this bass for like 2 weeks. It plays fine now, but I'm not sure if it is going to cause any problems in the future, that nut slot certainly doesn't look healthy. I left the plastic protector film on the p pickups for sometime until i took it off recently and found that one of the pole pieces stick out from the rest of the poles. This is really weird. Luckily the pole piece that stick out didn't cause sound problems. Just ugly looking pickups…i guess that's going to have some impact when I resell this bass. And the bass i got has a black pick guard instead of the brown shell one (i got a sunburst model). As I know, Fender did not offer this as an option on their site. Not really a fan of a black pick guard.Why is Fender doing this, do they just put on any pick guard they wish? What sucks the most is I ordered this online and I'm not living in US. I guess i've missed the 48hr policy for refund as more problems creep out. I've purchased basses online for a few times and it's always been good experience. But this time….sigh…..
