Fender squier bass serial number dating
In the early 1980s, Japanese labor and production costs were much lower than in America and to compete with the Japanese made guitars, Fender moved the lower priced Fender guitar production from America to Japan.Fender was also losing sales in Japan to Japanese guitar brands such as Tōkai, Greco and Fernandes and the establishment of Fender Japan would benefit Fender sales in Japan, as well as overseas.
Perhaps the best way to date the Vintage series is to carefully remove the necek and check the bottom of the neck for a production date.
The Fender serial number decoder currently supports all documented MIA, MIJ, MIM, MIK and MII formats with the exception of Custom Shop, Relic and Reissue instruments.
The first Fender Japan models introduced in May 1982 were the 19 series, which were Fender Stratocaster models ST'57-115, ST'57-85, ST'57-65, ST'62-115, ST'62-85, ST'62-65 and the Precision Bass models PB'57-95, PB'57-70, PB'62-98, PB'62-75.
These models were Fender models and not Squier models.
The Stratocasters had Fender USA pickups installed and were made for the Japanese market only and not for export.
Fender soon added a less expensive export Squier series based on the Fender Japan 19 series in July/August 1982, which had a large Fender logo with a smaller Squier logo and had a zinc rather than a steel tremolo block and again the Stratocasters had Fender USA pickups installed.Please note that fender serial numbers tend to overlap by at least a year, and thereby the date of your guitar can only be approximated. It was established in 1890 by Victor Carroll Squier in Battle Creek, Michigan. By 1975, Squier became defunct as a manufacturer and a brand name for strings, as Fender opted to market its strings under the Fender brand name.The SQ Squier series was based more on 1970s Fender models and also had USA made pickups installed.In 1996, Squier began to manufacture the Vista Series, which saw them introducing their own unique guitar designs independent from the Fender mother company for the first time.He moved to Boston in 1881, where he built and repaired violins with his son, Victor Carroll Squier. Squier violin strings, banjo strings and guitar strings became well known nationwide and were especially popular among students because of their reasonable price. Squier Company in early 1965, shortly before Fender itself was acquired by CBS in May of the same year.To this day, their violins are noted for their exceptional varnishes, and they command high prices as fine examples of early U. In the 1930s, Squier began making strings for the era's new electric instruments; the company also sold pianos, radios and phonograph records until divesting itself of all string-related products in 1961. Squier Company became an official original equipment manufacturer for Fender in 1963. By the mid-1970s, the Squier name was retired as the strings had taken the Fender name.Our serial number guide shows approximate date of manufacture.For all dates, you will need to look at the construction technique and components used to get a more precise idea of the date of manufacture.SERIAL NUMBERS and APPROXIMATE PRODUCTION DATES 1950's to 1964 In early 1965, Fender was sold to the CBS.The old Fender serial number scheme did not change immediately as CBS to use up existing parts and use existing tooling however a large F logo was added to the neck plate shortly after the accquisition.
