Bought an American Vintage '57 Reissue Strat new last week. Dealer didn't have any specs, which didn't bother me since I figured I'd just get them on this site. But all I see here are the 56 and 59, but not the 57. What's up, Fender?
Please let me know how I can get the specs and find out what year my instrument was made. (SN V197984 - dater sites and this one are not helpful). Thanks. beezee
A few ways to check that are fairly actuate pull the neck and check the date stamp on the butt of the neck or neck pocket or you can pull the pickguard and check the pot codes either way will get you your answer.
