    Any of you are aware if Fender is currently manufacturing instruments in Korea. I am currently station at Korea and recently I walked in to a music store in Seoul and found some Start guitars, J and P basses. the sale man told me they where korean made Fenders.

    Any information will help

  2. Other Fender Serial Number Schemes.
    Fender has recently (in the last 20 years) introduced LOTS of different serial numbers schemes, depending on the country the Fender was made (USA, Mexico, Japan, Korea, etc). Not all schemes are covered here! Sorry, since I do not collect new Fenders, I don't really keep track of these things. Below are some examples of letter prefixes used in recent serial number schemes.

    CN(XXXXXX) = Korean made Fender/Squier guitars (dating unclear)
    VN(XXXXXX) = Korean made Fender/Squier guitars (dating unclear)
