Okay, so I've been here nearly five years, and don't recall this being discussed. It probably has, but I don't remember, and this board has a ton of daily activity. So, why do some basses put a dot or block inlay marker on the first fret? Typically, the octave points at 12 and 24 have the double / split dot, with two blank frets on either side, as appropriate. Is there any particular reasoning behind having one at the first? Or is it just an aesthetic option?
