I have a guy trading his 50th Anniversary American Strat for my American Standard Telecaster, but he says its a 2003 model. How can this be? Isn't the 50th Anniversary line from 2004 and on? A little clarification would be cool...
he could just not really remember what year it was from. get the serial number and check with fender. and the 50th anniv strats and teles have a diamond like thing towards the top of the headstock right? as long as it has that it should be real.
or they started releasing the 04 models in 03, kinda like cars
Yeah, I just emailed him about the serial number. Im thinking he just doesnt remember and the serial number with start with Z4. Ill definitely keep an eye out for the diamond icon on the headstock though. Thanks for the tips fellas, especially ExtremeMetalFTW.
Well, I just heard back from the guy and he said the serial number begins with Z3. Hmmm...
get some pictures man and see if it looks real or put them up on ug.
How can the 50th anniversary Fenders be from 2004 when the 60th anniversary ones are from '06...?
^It's the 50th Anniversary of the Strat, and the 60th of Fender.
I heard that the 60th anniversary in '06 is of Fender and the 50th anniversary in '04 is of the Stratocaster
