    they might be both custom made, since i never seen those finishes, combined with maple board and black block inlays.... and matching headstock!!!!

    i got late to the jazz, he sold it for $600, and im looking for a jazz.... but maybe if i try the P and like it ill get it...

    they dont seem to be fake cause of the hard shell and the "F" Pup protectors..... but just in case : how can i check for them to be true Fenders?

    I had a fretless A/E P a looong time ago.

    90's model. Neck made in Japan, body made in the USA. Silver lace sensor P and a Piezo on the bridge, strings go through the body.

    It's been a few years since I sold mine but it had an interesting rubbery sound, maybe becaue it came strung with nylon flatwounds. No unplugged tone at all. It's really made to be played amplified. It had a thuddy sound. Metal wound strings would probably have made a difference.

    I'd say I don't think they're worth much more than $450. I think you can find used Godin A4's for about that price.
