I don't doubt you for a second, but how did you determine that with so little to see in the pic? I am genuinely curious.
And yeah, the S/N looks right for a late 70's Fender but that is not saying much as it was just 6 numbers stamped on a neck plate. I believe numbers in the 300,000 are early to mid 70's but I am sure there is a more educated fellow just about to chime in.
