Not advisable to buy new guitars as an investment. Even limited editions are a poor risk imho.

In other words, neither of them are likely to go up in value dramatically, if at all.

Cool. Go for it. First of all you can't. Secondly should you ever go to sell it consider your resale value to be about 25% of parts cost, at best, let alone the time and energy put into it. Supplies and tools if you're doing the set-up yourself aren't cheap, or another $100-$200 to have someone professionally set up and dress garbage Warmoth necks and frets.

The strat has a nitro cellulose Lacquer finish. 999 is a steal for this piece. Nitro is typically not used on anything but special re issues and custom shop. You are getting an insanely well done instrument with excellent custom shop pickups for a steallll. Enjoy righties. Wish it were lefty.

You can literally build either of these guitars with quality parts and some basic knowledge of guitar building for like $400.

$400 in cheap knock off parts, maybe. This is USA Fender with a case.

How much time, skill and effort does it take to make a guitar, let alone the cost of supplies and tools? By build do you mean from scratch or assemble from premade parts? If you want quality parts you're paying for them anyway. You're not getting the same build and component quality as one of these from $400 worth of parts. If you believe that you have zero experience in assembling guitars. So you mean you can build a similar guitar. But it's obviously not the same level of quality.

Which one of these will likely have the highest resale value a few years from now?

I would bet on the Jazz Tele. Looks legitimately vintage with the tinted neck finish and vintage tuners. Also looks the least like a mix up at the factory. I like both, but I would go with the Jazz-Tele.

I agree. Mostly trying to guess at which one would be the safest bet in case I decided to try and recoup some of my investment in the future. Seems reasonable to think you could get most of your money back considering you would be getting it for half the full price but I'm not a reseller so not sure.

Safest bet for resale would be the Strat as it would be more sought after in my opinion. But that's just a guess.
