Yeah he was a little dishonest on the Fenders
I purchased from him also. I wasn't going to say much and beleive him but they were in too bad of shape to believe thats how he bought them new. My shop guy said it would cost an additional $150 to make them usable.
Nick, I'm sorry man but I just don't buy the story... I emailed Henshin and showed them pics and they were pretty surprised that you said they sent them to you like that.
