The serial suggests a very early made guitar - a very vague guess would be around 1966 give or take a year.

The support pages say the Palomino was produced in 1968-1971, but then again, there's a 1965 headlined manual: https://www.fmicassets.com/Damroot/Orig ... o_1965.pdf
And this page says 1964: http://www2.fender.com/experience/guita ... struments/


There may be a neck date in the heel area, if you feel confident enough to check.

And pics would be nice.

Dating these guitars accurately is not easy. I used to have an early, low serial number Newporter. The neck was stamped 10.5. I wondered if this meant 10/65 (Oct 65) but who knows? There were no other markings on the guitar.

I have a Palomino S/N 01286 I bought used about mid 1966. It had been repossessed. Yours is also one of the early ones.
