    Hi all

    I'm looking at a Fender Jazz but I can't decipher the serial. Pic attached (hopefully). Haven't yet contacted the seller as I want to be a bit clued up before doing so. Can anyone tell me anything about its origins? Had a bit of a look on various websites but can't determine when or where it was made. Advert link is here.

    Thanks

    Edit: could it be a Squier that someone is passing off as the real deal?

    It's not a Fender, or if it is it's an Indo model, most likely a more recent Squire. The "Designed and Backed by Fender" is a dead giveaway.

    Someone probably switched the decals.

    That headstock is really wrong. Ans Fender says the serial is incorrect. Possibly a cheap Squier judging by the colour... Definitively not a 575$ instruments.
