So, without any factories FMIC moved all guitar production during 1985 and early 1986 to Japan, while FMIC built a new factory in Corona, California.The Japanese-made Fenders do have some slight serial number differences (typically a “J” serial number prefix).In 1957/1958 some serial numbers started with a minus sign (“-“), or had a “0” prefix before the number.Also in 1959/1960 some serial numbers were at the bottom of the neck plate instead of the usual top.though most collectors will value all 1965 Fenders similarly to Pre-CBS (the sale was consummated in early February, 1965) 100000 to 110000 = late 1965 110000 to 200000 = 1966 180000 to 210000 = 1967 210000 to 250000 = 1968 250000 to 280000 = 1969 280000 to 300000 = 1970 300000 to 330000 = 1971 330000 to 370000 = 1972 370000 to 520000 = 1973 500000 to 580000 = 1974 580000 to 690000 = 1975 690000 to 750000 = 1976For many reasons, Fender decided to change the serial numbering system and it’s location in the mid-1970’s.You can imagine that it might have been cheaper to have the serial numbers added to the decals rather than have them machined.

Generally speaking, a “S” prefix equals the 1970’s (In March 1985, CBS sold Fender to a group of private investors made up of the management of the corporation at the time.

The bridge plate or neckplate were applied to a guitar with no thought to keeping any kind of number sequence.
