So I was looking at some MTD's, and I noticed this:
MTD Kingston KZ 6-String Fretless Bass | GuitarCenter
has a buzz feiten tuning thingy on it. Is it just as pointless as I think it is? Are they just doing this so they don't have to use different nuts on the fretted and fretless models? Am I thinking too hard about this?
Link didn't work for me, but it's probably exactly what you said (pointless, other than simplifying manufacture by using the same nuts on everything).
