I got a new bass today (#6). I found a scratch and dent Dean EAB Fretless at Musician's Friend for $150. As far as the scratch and dent goes; it's in pretty good shape, not more than what I would do to it. There is some very light scuffing at the back and some scratches under the E string. I guess whoever bought it before kept it for the most of the 45 days allowed before it was sent back. Over all, it seems to be worth what I've paid for it. I replaced the strings that was on it with nylon wrapped Fender's that I previously had on my electric fretless. The tension is less with the Fender strings, so I have some buzzing on the E string at the low end of the fretboard. I'm going to let it sit overnight and retune it tomorrow. The reviews I've read states the action is pretty high. This one wasn't with the factory strings and it is even lower with the Fender strings. I wonder if the prior owner filed down the slots in the nut. If it still buzzes tomorrow; I'll loosen the truss rod a little, the neck is pretty straight right now. I might have to buy a different nut or maybe I'll get some different strings. I'll let everyone know more about it later.
