    mine is recent. i think its 2000, but im not sure
  4. Hmm. I don't know. I have a book on fender dating but it stops at 1983. Sorry I can't help you. Don't fret, someone will know.
  5. Your serial should start with Z0 if its 2000. Z1 for 2001, N9 for 1999 and so on. The system started in the late seventies.
