Dating fender stratocaster neck girl talk lessons dating
Also there are Non-Squier, Fender Japan models from the same era too.
My serial number E673928 indicates 1984-87 However nothing I can find specifically says Fender Squier - so am I right in assuming that this list applies to Squiers (as opposed to regular Fenders - if in fact that is such a thing as a non-Squier Fender made in Japan?)Also, is there anything in the number that can indicate a more specific date? I'm not an expert on this so -please- take my comments as being a bit subjective but from my understanding the "E series" MIJ Strats of this era...Fender or Squier, all came out of the same factory; Fuji Gen.For all I know that guitar may have not actually been sold new until '86 or '87 (or later)...there's just no way to know for certain. If you browse through Ebay ads of this nature you will often see instruments advertised simply as "E series Strat" and dated as an '84 to '87.Because the neck is marked as an '85 though, that's what I call her..'85. Sometimes you will see something listed as more specific along with pictures showing a specific date stamp but unless all of the parts of the instrument are dated and those dates are still clear and readable, there's just no way to know for sure.
