Fender serial number

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by pete_the_beat, Jun 13, 2003.

  1. Can anyone help me on this one.
    I found a Fender P on eBay with the serial
    number S 861653.
    My question is: when was it made.

    Thanks in advance:bassist:

    I also have a S 8XXXXX serial number on my P-Bass
    but I got it in june 1977 for high school grad.
    I read in the Fender Bass book they use S8
    for a few years around 77-78-79.even though I got it in 77 I still call it my "78".:)
  5. Thanks for the help guys.
    The person who's selling the bass said it was
    from 1979 but I wanted to be sure.
    I'll post a pic if I win the auction.
