Have you ever bought an instrument at deep discount because it had a flaw that you either didn't care about or was easily fixed? I bought a Player Precision off Sam Ash that had been returned. Within seconds, I understood what the previous owner's beef was... Horrible buzzing on the A string. The nut was cut incorrectly. I did a fix with super glue and baking soda which worked but ultimately just replaced the nut with a TUSQ. So, for $12 it became a perfectly playable bass. The other two pictured are a finish flaw (Telecaster Deluxe) and a dent (Performer Jazz), both of which are on the rear or bottom of the instruments. For a big markdown in price, I have absolutely no problem with that. Two questions... Is a rear blemish a deal-breaker for you?... and have you ever felt like you scored on an instrument purchase because of some defect that didn't bother you? Pictures encouraged but not necessary.
