    Fender used to have a page on their site that allowed you to put the serial # in and it would give an approximate date; I was not able to find it though last time I went to

    I would go to Yahoo and type in Dating Fender Guitars and you should be able to find someone else with the info.

    You could always go to the local scientific laboratory around your neighborhood and ask politely if they'll do a Carbon-dating test.
