    Hi all, a question for MIJ Experts here.

    Talking about MIJ 80s production, i was wondering if there is any consistency in the use of the chrome neckplate withe the "FENDER" etched logo VS the use of the "anonymous" clear chrome neckplate.

    Some says that Fender started to use the etched version in the early 90s, but doing some visual research you can see it was already used in 1988, though there are some 88ers sporting the clear one.

    This led me into thinking that there were no consistency at all, so here im asking.

    Thank you
