Dating a mexican fender guitar dating a manic depressive person

There are a handful of amp types for which I'm still running the searches because I have so little data (mainly in the solid-state range).

According to Tom Wheeler's excellent book about the Stratocaster, it may be that they had no factory after December 1984!

So (example) the last few hundred Super Champs seem to have date codes from 1984 but there's anecdotal evidence that they were assembled in nearby Brea, CA in 1986.

Fender never replied, and the magazine showed polite disinterest.

So, with my dreams of being A Published Author in shreds, I might as well make what I've got available to folks.

While it's anyone's guess how many of these were Champ II and how many were Bassman 20, they seem to come up on e Bay equally often. People keep on referring to this 'fewer than 500' thing, especially when they're trying to sell one as 'rare', but I'm still waiting for anyone to point back to the original 'fact' of the matter!

) If your amp's serial number falls into the last 3 batches then your best hope of dating it is if you've still got the original speaker.

Advertisers and politicians make decisions based on smaller percentages!

I'm guessing amp-owners like to know when their amp was made, if it's old-ish.

Compared to my estimate of the total made, that's around than one in forty.
