The one I bought was used. Instruments vary a lot. Always best to try first if you can. I did, but it simply didn't connect with me over time like I assumed it would.

The Fender Fretless Jazz Bass I just purchased now has a 5 year warranty. You are right. It was certainly a selling point.

My dad pointed out that the fingerboard crack on the second-hand one is situated right above the truss rod location. Could be coincidence but I will not place a bid on it. Rather sit it out a while and order new (and if possible, try before I buy).
