The first three digits refer to the manufacturer, CTS.

The last four are broken up into pairs, where the first two, 78, stand for 1978 and the last two stand for the week, which is the 18th.

Be aware of another code found on these pots, 013446.

It has nothing to do with the date as I've seen the exact same code of pots ranging from 1977 - 1981 strats.

My intent with this site is to educate those who are on the hunt for that last affordable vintage Fender Stratocaster.

Have a read through and hopefully you will pickup a few things to better assert yourself in the late 70's Stratocasters buyer's market. M = Model or Manufacturer O = Operator N = Neck configuration W = Week Y = Year D = Day Neck Stamps: MMNN*WWYD Example: 0900*3893 - Found on the very end of the neck heel, if at all, in green or dark red ink.First four digits are paired up, 09 is the model number for the Stratocaster, and 00 is the neck configuration, in his case a fretted Maple neck with a Rosewood fingerboard. 38 is the week, 9 stands for the year, 1979, and 3 is the day of the week, which is Wednesday.The '*' represents a middle digit that is either an 'X', a '-' or something that resembles a '1/2' or '1/4' fraction.I guess people like to use those words way too often to describe Strats that are neither.Although the tables below are as accurate as possible, serial numbers of these acoustic guitars have never been archived and are of no assistance when attempting to date these instruments.metropolis74, I don't think that the number in the body is a part number.
