Dating fender guitar amps

Rated 4.73/5 based on 749 customer reviews

Let’s take a look at a couple speakers from Warehouse Guitar Speakers (wgs4.com) so I can better explain this.Their G12C/S speaker is listed as 99.79 d B, while their G12C is listed at 96.10 d B.

Fender has used only a handful of different speaker types over the years.If it’s a one digit year you need to determine the correct decade of the amp some other way.ZZ = a number from 1 – 52 indicating the week of the year.Fender often used the same circuit for many years so this is not a very accurate method for amp dating.The code is simple, the first two letters are the revision, where AA is the first revision, AB is the second, etc.
