    I think Fender setups may be a little over zealous on the lowness of the nut setups... I have seen several where the strings do dig on the tuner side, and when I purchased my MIM fretless a few months back, the E string was hitting the fingerboard about 3/16" on the 'fretting' side. Replaced the nut and it's a thing of beauty now...
