And I don't mean taking one for dinner and a movie. I'm trying to tell the date of manufacture by the serial number. In particular, if the serial number starts with S + six digits (04 being the first two digits), when was it made? Can I assume it means 2004? The Fender web site doesn't have a listing for CIJ Fenders starting with S (it ends at R). I know the Reissues were introduced in 2002, so obviously it has to be 2002 or later.
