As a general rule of thumb, serial numbers can be used to denote a year range for a particular guitar. As a broad generality V000001-V004000 denote a 1982 guitar, V004000-V010000 denote a 1983 guitar, and V010000-V016000 denotes a 1984 guitar.

A few popular books state that the serial numbers re-started with V0000001 when the new Corona, Ca factory opened. If you look at my fullerton inventory, you can see that this is just a broad generality.

I have come across many guitars with a serial number in the V012000's with a 1982 neckdate.

Fender adopted a two-letter dating code in 1990, and the code can be found on the Quality Assurance label, inside the cabinet, sometimes located on the bottom, next to the reverb tank, sometimes on the side.

The codes are usually handwritten, and the letters can occasionally be hard to decipher. There is no reliable way to date 2003-2005 amps other than to ask Fender customer support to look up the date from the serial number, although you may find a date code on the speaker.

This makes it possible to place a guitar into a rather tight year range just by using serial number.

The only way to correctly date an AVRI is to correlate the serial number, neckdate, and the codes on the pots.

There are also exceptions to the rules where Fender delivered non-standard speakers in special orders, Christmas campaigns etc. See our Buyer’s guide to vintage Fender amps for a guide and picture gallery of the known original speakers in the blackface and silverface amps.

You may compare these with your own speakers to determine what you have.

It’s a little weak in the bass and the highs are a bit more muted than the other speakers.

Our Buyer’s guide to vintage Fender amps explains in detail how you can date your amp by looking at serial numbers, tube charts, transformer codes, speaker codes, Fender logo, etc.

This speaker has been used in the Hot Rod Deluxe, Blues Deluxe, Deluxe Reverb and the Twin Reverb, among others. It doesn’t have the deepest bass, however, and the highs can sometimes be “fizzy.” When the cream board tweeds were introduced, Fender chose the Jensen reissue (made in Italy) C12N.
