I bought mine from a local music store six months ago brand new and it was a 2010. Lol. Inventory usually backs up. Especially because retailers have to buy big orders if they work with fender. So some things sit. I say unless you really wanted that year or if there is a change between the years that you wanted return it, if not and you like it. Keep it.
