Fender MFC Codes

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by jefft54, Jun 30, 2005.


  1. Does anyone hear have a list of Fender country of manufacture codes. I know the first 3 digits indicate the country of origin but I cannot find anywhere a listing of which code goes to each country. MrGearhead.com only redirects you back to the Fender website and I couldn't find anything on this. If anyone has a list or can point me to a site that does, it would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks, I know someone at TB knows everything!

    That's not the code he speaks of, when you by a new Fender the hang tag has a number on it that reflects country of origin. On this hang tag is the inspectors initials, date, country of origin # ie 025 1902 503 (MIJ) which is the actual part number and the serial # at the bottom.
