    Hi, I just picked up a Korean Fender Squire Jazz bass and every source I looked at says, "dating unclear". Can anybody tell me what year this serial number relates to, or even what few years? VN 621341. I bought it because it has a new well built neck on it, never been played for more than a few times I am sure and the price was right. Thanks, Roy

    Thanks, but again it comes up "dating unclear", does anyone know what years Fender made guitars in Korea? Maybe I could get close. Thanks, Roy

    they started in the early mid 80's(they are very sought after because of the qaulity that went into them).

    its a 1996 , I have a CN serial numbered Jazz that kills ! , more output than MIM , CV , VM , sounds great , anyway the N stands for nineties and the V is the Factory , the C on mine is the Cort factory . I hope that helps
