Dating fender bassman 60
I believe it's early 2000's (that's what the guy told me when I bought it 4 years ago.)(It's a solid wood cabinet, I believe it's pine, looks like red pine from westcoast.)Thank you ! I wish I could help, but what I know about amplifiers you could fit into a small tin of Kiwi boot polish.
These can definitely be useful in cases where no other numbers exist, but just tell when the pot itself was made.
Who knows how long it was waiting in the Fender factory before finding its way into a Tele?
Through much of Fender's production history, Fender workers would print or write a production date on both bodies and necks where the two pieces meet.
These dates will tell when the original part was manufactured, but are not exact indicators of when the guitar was actually put together and finished.
