Second, my data set for making conclusions is relatively small and therefore, subject to change as new information surfaces.

However, the interpretation of the two date code systems appears to be relatively straight forward and the conclusions were confirmed by pickup dates and pot dates in most cases.

The date from 1969-71 stamped codes can be extracted by working from the outside inward.

A versatile tone machine, refined for modern players who will appreciate the accessibility of the neck and lovely new pickups. A pair of Humbuckers turn the everyday American Strat into a savage tonal monster. The new colour scheme and pickup setup makes this one of our favourite models from the 2017 Fender American Professional range. If you like the idea of cranking things up with a Humbucker without dropping your pants completely (like the HH! V-Mod single coil pickups work nicely against a fat-sounding Shawbucker at the bridge. Speedy, powerful and articulate thanks to the new neck feel and hardware package.

Available in a wide range of new finishes and with the option of a potentially soon-to-be-discontinued rosewood neck. The extra string helps you hit those ultra low notes. For those that like it super smooth - same as the standard Jazz Bass with white line fret markers! We're eager to get our hands on the first batch of the 2017 Fender American Professional series arriving into our UK Stores any day now.

This means two things for the owner of a 1969-80 Fender.

First, the chances of having an intact stamped code is about 50-50.

The new code consisted of 6, 7 or 8 digits and was usually stamped in green ink.

An example of this type of neck code found on a Precision Bass is 529129B.

In 1969, CBS-Fender began to implement a new type of neck stamp in place of the usual date stamp consisting of model code, month, year, neck width (e.g.

8 DEC 65 B for a Duo-Sonic II with a 1 5/8 inch neck width).

We're expecting a supremely comfortable playing experience and the renowned USA build quality to shine through as always.
