Dating japanese fender telecaster die besten dating seiten Heidelberg
Fender Musical Instruments Corporation entered the picture in the 1950s, when the V. Squier Company began supplying Southern California inventor and businessman Leo Fender with strings for his unusual new electric guitars. Before the Fender Squier line of guitars was introduced in 1982, Fender was making lower priced guitars such as the Fender Lead series at its Fullerton, California plant.
Until the introduction of the Fender Squier series, Fender had never produced lower priced guitars based on its main Stratocaster and Telecaster models and had always used different model designs for its lower priced guitars.
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.
Exceptions: Pro-Tone Series (solid ash bodies) had serial numbers with either a) no preceding letters and 7 digits, with the first number being the year, or b) starting with KC for Korean Cort, followed by 2-digit year.
The S and E Squires seem to be from the late 1980's/early 1990's and don't seem to have a reliable serial number system for dating. The second character refers to the decade N = Nineties (1990's). Miscellaneous Chinese serials: CD, CT, CJ, NC: C = China, the first number following the serial number prefix is the year. Squier serial numbers beginning with CA are made by Axl China. Indian Squiers: Some Squier II's were made in India around 1989-1990. ======= Gil _________________Where ever you go, there you are 1998 Ovation 1861 Standard Balladeer Natural Taka - 2005 Squier '51 Black Yume - 2006 Squier Strat Cherryburst Houbi - 2008 Fender VG Strat Blizzard Pearl - won here Fender Super Champ XD; Vox DA-5 According the large message from Giljanus: "The S and E Squires seem to be from the late 1980's/early 1990's and don't seem to have a reliable serial number system for dating." I am assuming the E is for E-Series?
