Some might go by the pot codes, but those could have been stock a year or more old by the time they were put into the newly finished guitar.Or perhaps the guitar was even assembled by various parts picked up over the years and is being passed off as "All original".I guess people like to use those words way too often to describe Strats that are neither.

Some dealers simply go by the serial number, which you will discover can be far from accurate.

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.

An amazing player’s grade Broadcaster that has been fully restored by JW Restoration with some body work, refin, refret and pickup rewind (serious inquiries please contact us for full restoration details).

In this example the pickups were wound by operator #20 in the 23rd week of 1978.

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