[i]I have had real difficulties getting any accurate information from Fender about it's Custom Shop Production Serial numbers from 1994. Custom Shop's neck plates with the V USA logo ...have serial numbers starting with CNXXXXXXX ... I own two myself ... Masterbuilt Esparza hardtail Stratocaster + a 54 Strat reissue) both made in 1994. The confusion with all of this is when you reference Fender Production Serial Numbers... it states serial Numbers starting with "CN" means they were made in Korea (Fender or Squire Series)!!! There is no reference to the CN serial # being issued by Fender Custom Shop ... this makes the appraisal and value of my Custom Shops very questionable... Does anyone have a Fender Source, article, fact sheet verifying this information? :evil: [/i]

Send the info you have, serial numbers, etc. to consumerrelations@fender.com, and they will give you whatever info and specs they have on record.

Hi KRY,

Same problem here with my 94 CS P51 bass... They told me their proper records at the CS starts in 1994, but nothing there on mine... SHAMBLES comes to mind...

Can't even find me a catalogue extract or brochure... How poor is that... Guitar is great, but the rest sucks. Mine has lost all its candy over the years...

If you've still got yours, plus stamps on neck and body, I wouldn't think there's an issue with autentification...

CN (from Custom shop) means C Ustom N umber followed by a year identifier number. It was also said to mean C ustom N ineties.
