Fender Serial Number

Anyone know of a URL of a Fender database that tracks serial numbers of strats? I'm trying to help a relative determine if his 'American' strat was made in Mexico or not. I thought perhaps the number would indicate its source of origin.

Hi Leonardo, welcome to the forum 😊 I hope you will like it here. Rag n bone man wolves download.

I think this is a 1992 stratocaster and around %575-900 -
however perhaps another member can give you a more accurate number.

Fender.com has a decent s/n lookup function too.

Value of used Fenders is based on condition (unless it is real old). A good place to check value is on eBay. Just see what they are selling for. In good condition, a US made strat that is 10 years old or so should bring $500-700.

Mexican Fender serial numbers usually start with the letter M. But check out Fender.com to be sure.

naworffoeg welcome to the forum 😊

Same goes for you.

I don't think a more reliable source is available than the one of the manufacturer itself 😉

Yes sure you can. Just remember that pix should be under 500 pixels in size.

Gavin, upload it and make sure it doesn't exceed 500 pixels. As long as it gets along these guidelines it will upload.
Skip the preview 😊

Gavin, that's a beautiful guitar 😊 I found a discussion about a 1996 American Strat HERE, on Ebay (please click), in where the price of $600 was mentioned as a 'good-low price'. Perhaps this gives you some indication 😊

Thanks for all your input - I was thinking of selling but now my gut kinda tells me 'don't do it!'

I think you should follow your guts 😊 It's a beautiful guitar 😊

I have a 1987 American stratocaster. My brother paid $800.00 new. Does anyone know what I should sell it for. It was given to me in 1989 and has been played approximently 40 hours if that much.

Hi all, just joined when I was researching the serial numbers for Mexican made strats. I'm about to sell one and want to describe the age accurately and hopefully I will buy a 84 SG tomorrow, hell of a deal, I still love Fenders but..love AC/DC too. One day I will have a guitar collection, for me that means more than one!
