Usa n squier dating
I have a Squier with a "N" seial number that is on a sticker at the base of the neck above the neck plate. My research tells me that Squiers were made in the USA for less than 12 months.Hi Jek, Start by checking the serial number, here is a basic guide for you, once having established the serial number, post it and we will tell you if its genuine.
Where to find the serial number The serial numbers on the guitar are provided through the years on various places.The following info will also help you determine if its a Fender Sqier number.History Fender, under the ownership of CBS, acquired the Squier brand name in 1965 when it bought a USA based string making firm, but it lay dormant for many years .To read this it is necessary to unscrew the neck from the body.
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.At the top of the neck plate, at the front or at the back of the head or on the cover plate of the vibrato.(Stratocaster) Between 19 there were periods that this is not consistently done.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.
