Got my new Paramount about 10 days ago from Musician's Friend. Fit and finish is really good and not a sharp fret end. Action appears to have been set by Musician's Friend because it is low and no buzzing, just the slightest neck relief. I've purchased things through MF before but never a bass....just pedals for my guitar playing oldest nephew. $259 free shipping and no tax! 2016 serial number so I am guessing they are unloading existing NOS inventory since these are discontinued. Came with usual Dean sticker and warranty card and tools.

Thin Satin finish on back of neck. This is a nice fast neck without the sandpaper or steel wool routine.
