I ordered a new Fender 08 Precision V and I have a bit of a problem with a dead spot. It has the normal fender deads pot (7th fret on g string). But, there is also one on the D (5th) of the A string. It isn't as bad as the G string one. The attack is as normal, but it doesn't sustain nearly as long as the other notes. I probably wouldn't have noticed if I wasn't playing a song that required sitting on an A with half notes.. Would this bother you? I don't usually hear about dead spots in this region of the fingerboard.
