Pls Advise 1st GJ Guitar - used Gitane D-500 or Pierre Fontaine

Found a couple of interesting used guitar for my first gypsy jazz style instrument, and would like to ask your advice. Which one would you take?


1- Pierre Fontaine, reportedly bought in the Paris, Rue Rome shop a few years ago, built late 90s or early 2000s, heavy play wear, appears cosmetic only, needs a setup to lower the action (a little concerned as it doesn't seem to have a truss rod and I'm not looking for a 'project guitar'). Having said that, I've got a good feeling about this one! ;)

2- Gitane D-500, used, very good condition. Perhaps a safer choice...


Both about the same price, USD850.

Can't play both, very long drive, would try and confirm upon pickup.

Attached some pictures.


Thoughts?


Thanks!
