Squier by fender serial number dating


From the production of the first solidbody Fender guitars and until 1976, Fender tagged a production date at the butt of the detachable neck of their guitars.Only about half the guitars still carry any intelligible information here. I've left it totally original, in fact, in lives in the case! 3 Way pickup selector fitted, but comes with a 5 way if you want to de-solder the three way...Determining the date can also be important from a collector’s perspective, since the pre-1966 vintage Fender guitars are generally considered the most valuable.Fender was sold to CBS in the first week of January 1965, but already in late 1964 mass production was slowly being introduced, which gradually lowered quality and ultimately collectibility.Six-digit serial numbers with no preceding letters, with the first number being the year. Turns out, it was built in the Samick factory, in 1989. It's a lovely old thing, and just coming up to 20 years old! In DESPERATE need of a re-fret or stoning tho, so if you know anyone reputable...

BTW: There's a great write up on them here: Thanks again, Mark Okey dokey, here goes: 2007 Epiphone Les Paul Custom. On early ’50s Stratocaster guitars serial numbers were stamped on the back vibrato cover plate.On some Telecaster guitars the serial number is found on the bridge plate between the pickup and the saddles.) My other axes, in case anyone is wondering: Epiphone Les Paul Custom (2008): Not bad, 7 out of 10! mark Welcome to the forum, and my apols for taking so long to help out. Epiphone Les Paul Special Edition (bright green, Korean): 9 out 10 AWESOME! I found this info put up by "Leadowner" on (after having a nasty experience from typing "Korean dating" into a search engine). Stagemaster Deluxe (neck-thru maple necks with basswood wings), and the Double Fat Tele Deluxe (all solid mahogany with set necks), with serial numbers starting with KC for Korean Cort, followed by 2-digit year.
