    A guy offered me this as a trade and I don’t think it’s original. The serial number he gave me comes up as a deluxe active pj. I’m worried it may be a fender neck on a knock off body. What do you think?

    Don't do it! That's a fake Fender to my eyes!

    Kinda what I thought. The color isn’t right. I don’t like the logo. Seems fishy

    looks like a Deluxe PJ neck on a Standard LPB body. The Deluxe PJ has the same headstock decal

    It's a parts bass for sure, don't think it's necessarily fake. Appears to have a Fender Deluxe PJ neck, Seymour Duncan pickup, high mass Fender bridge, without seeing the body without a pickguard or neck it's hard to tell what it is. If it has the hang hole it could be MIM.

    Thanks for the help guys. I had a feeling something was off. He was super offended when I sent him this pic from fender when I entered the serial number. Lol

    I would have traded for that. Love my PJ’s
     
  13. Well, what does he think, it is all original with that weird "custom" neck plate?

    Is he claiming he bought it new, retail, in that configuration?

    Lots of red flags, might be cool but not original for sure.
     
  15. We have a pretty good idea that it is a parts bass. Just how much are they asking for it?
    Neck, pups and bridge are still worth something!!
    Good Luck!

    I’d be offended that he was quite possibly trying to sneak one past ya!

    I'd say trade for a live hamster is a pretty good deal. Send me the dude's details. I'll get him any color hamster and we will arrange delivery before Christmas.
