Dating mexican fender Xxx cam toronto

As far as I know, wood used for bodies in Mexican Strats now is alder, but I remember that once it was poplar (am I right ? Does anyone know if there were any changes connected with anniversary guitars from Mexico (1996 - 50 years of Fender) - for example other wood, better pickups, etc ?Thank you in advance regards Tomek Oh yeah, sorry about that, I totally missed your other inquiry."MN6" would suggest 1996, but after it, there are 6 digits instead of 5 (on guitar dating page there are 5 digits after MN6). ----------------------------------------------------------------- Not to worry, I'm pretty sure your guitar is genuine.

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!

Stagemaster Deluxe (neck-thru maple necks with basswood wings), and the Double Fat Tele Deluxe (all solid mahogany with set necks), with serial numbers starting with KC for Korean Cort, followed by 2-digit year.

There were also some KV (Korean Saehan(Sunghan)) serial numbers followed by 2-digit year. Comes with Dimarzio pickups and coil tap on the back pickup (lift the back tone control knob).

I'll see if I can post any piccies of the old thing...

BTW: There's a great write up on them here: Thanks again, Mark Okey dokey, here goes: 2007 Epiphone Les Paul Custom.

Six-digit serial numbers with no preceding letters, with the first number being the year. Turns out, it was built in the Samick factory, in 1989. It's a lovely old thing, and just coming up to 20 years old!

In DESPERATE need of a re-fret or stoning tho, so if you know anyone reputable...

) 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).

They were limited on the amount they could use, so naturally fender had to stop using it (just on the mexican made models, since their mass produced in very large numbers, more than american made ones), so they just substituted the alder with poplar since it is basically the closest they can come (as far as sound goes) to the alder while keeping with a tonewood that's good for guitar bodies.
