Remember that the 52 hot rod is based on the 52 American Vintage Re-issue. In 1952 the serial numbers were located in the neck pocket and on the neck itself which are not visible without removing the neck. However, the re-issues also have the the serial number stamped on the bridge plate. I've had my 52 AVRIHR for several months now and nothing I have ever played before comes close to this professional instrument. My Les Paul collects dust.

Hey thanks 7, yeah I saw the number on the plate but wasn't sure that was it ('Fender Pat.Pend 12345). I also found out that it is a 5 number serial off the Fender web site, so that has to be it, I'm not gonna remove the neck just to check the year, don't need to know it that bad. :lol:
