Most notably, production dates have been penciled or stamped on the butt end of the heel of the neck of most guitars and basses, although there were periods when this was not consistently done to , for example or simply omitted. Neck-dating can be useful in determining the approximate age of a guitar, but it is certainly not definitive because the neck date simply refers to the date that the individual component was produced, rather than the complete instrument.
Given the modular nature of Fender production techniques, an individual neck may have been produced in a given year, then stored for a period of time before being paired with a body to create a complete guitar, perhaps, for example, in the following year. Therefore, while helpful in determining a range of production dates, a neck date is obviously not a precisely definitive reference.
Most specifications for a given Fender instrument model change little if at all throughout the lifetime of the model. While there have been periods of dramatic change—such as the transition periods between the Leo Fender years and the CBS years or the transition between the CBS years and the current ownership—most models are generally feature-specific and do not change from year to year. For years, serial numbers have been used in various locations on Fender instruments, such as the top of the neck plate, the front or back of the headstock and the back of the neck near the junction with the body.

DATING FENDER GUITARS BY REFERENCE OF SERIAL NUMBERS The S stands for the decade of the seventies, an attempt by CBS to identify serial.
Non e’ questo il caso delle chitarre Fender fabbricate in Estremo Oriente, che possono avere entrambe le configurazioni. BASS e J. BASS hanno la giusta spaziatura ampia al dodicesimo tasto stile , mentre le corrispondenti versioni USA hanno i pallini a spaziatura stretta I differenti schemi di numerazione ed i sistemi usati alla Fender dal riassunti anno per anno si applicano solo alle chitarre e bassi elettrici fabbricati in USA quelli veri!
I modelli Fender e Squire costruiti in Giappone e Corea NON sono inclusi nella tabella di datazione, anche se possono avere schemi di numerazione simili. In effetti, a meno che non sia stata manipolata disonestamente, una Fender giapponese dovrebbe avere una piccola scritta adesiva ‘made in Japan’, o sulla paletta o sul retro del manico, vicino all’attaccatura del manico al body. Naturally, all Fender guitars were made in the USA until the Japanese models of late , but if you bought a , or model Strat it was possible to get one with these pickguard electronic assembles from Mexico.
They still had CTS company pots and are no different with respect to sound. The only way to tell is from the very small “MEXICO” stamped on the pot most likely a legal requirement to indicate origin of assembly.
