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 (1973 to 1981, for example) or simply omitted.

I was wondering, is there any way to date these guitars from the serial number?

I'm just curious (it's NOT going on Fleece Bay, it's just about my fave guitar - the guitar I keep coming back to, despite it being rather beaten up after all these years!

) 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).

Notice that there is quite a bit of overlap in numbers and years.

The only way to try to narrow the date range of your specific instrument is to remove the neck and check the butt end of the neck heel for a production date, which may be stamped or written there (if you`re uncomfortable doing this yourself, please refer to an experienced professional guitar tech in your area). Serial numbering didn`t change immediately because instruments continued to be made using existing, tooling, parts and serial number schemes.

But once again, due to Fender`s modular production methods and often non-sequential serial numbering (usually overlapping two to four years from the early days of Fender to the mid-1980s), dating by serial number is not always precisely definitive.

The chart below details Fender serial number schemes used from 1950 to 1964.

I'm a 37 year old bedroom plank spanker (ooer misses etc) from the UK.

I own quite a few guitars (9 I think), but on inparticular is a favourite of mine: An old Korean Squier Strat that I picked up around 1992.

Neck-dating can be useful in determining the was produced, rather than the complete instrument.
