Dating fender guitar
All Fender acoustic guitars have a label placed on the inside of the guitar that give the specifications of the guitar. Fender makes guitars in the United States, Mexico, Japan and China, knowing where your guitar was made will make it easier to find the production date.
If the label inside the guitar does not say where the guitar was manufactured, look on the back of the guitar's headstock for the printed "Made In" location.
The higher priced Fender guitars were made in the United States and could not compete with the lower prices of Japanese made Fender copies.
For newer model guitars, most are listed based on their serial number rather than the model type.
If you'd like to find out when your Fender acoustic guitar was manufactured, there is a simple process to follow.
Locate the model of guitar you have by looking inside the center circle of the acoustic guitar.
Visit the section of the Fender website that has the product dates of their guitar categorized by serial number.
Again, you will need to know where your guitar was made first so you can choose the correct list to look through.
