Fender custom shop serial dating

23 Aug

The Ampli Tube Custom Shop allows you to do just that – build your virtual gear collection one piece at a time, as you need it.With it, you can create your own custom guitar and bass rigs just like in the full version of Ampli Tube 4.And after disassembling the guitar, I’ve found some interesting information about who was involved in building it.I also have the original case, a certificate of authenticity signed by John Page, and all the case candy. Thanks, Richard Grant in Guelph, Ontario Hi Richard, Do you really need to ask if it is trash or treasure?Is there any site or database that can help with that sorta' thing? Mexican Squiers: M stands for Mexico, the second character refers to the decade: N represents Nineties (1990's). So, for example "MN8" = made by Fender at Ensenada Mexico in 1998. Japanese Squiers: For Japanese serial number dating see Fenders site.

There is a chart on the fender website to estimate the era your fender is from, but I can't find a way to lookup the age of my squier. The Japanese MIJ Squiers were made by Fuji Gen up to 1997 and the Japanese CIJ Squiers were made by Tokai and Dyna from 1997.

At some point, Kennis Russell bought a used Stratocaster at his local guitar shop.

Within a few seconds, however, Russell—a guitarist who provides backing tracks, gear demos and reviews on You Tube—realized it was a fake."Someone had rubbed off the Squier logo from the headstock and put a fake Fender waterslide on it," Russell says."In this video I compare this fake Fender Strat to two 'real' U. Fender Strats, a Mexican Fender Strat and a Squier Strat.

Maybe a more appropriate question would be to ask how of a treasure it is!

The Fender Custom Shop is one of the finest custom-guitar facilities in the U. and they’ve certainly produced some amazing (and valuable) instruments over the years.
