Dating fender drri by serial number
NOTE: Technically fender was sold in early 1965 and this amp is stamped"OH" for October 1965. Amplifier Dimensions: Height: 17.5" 44.45 cm) Width: 24.5" 62.23 cm) Depth: 9.5" 24.13 cm) I got this thrown in when I bought my Blues Junior Amp because it is all the music store had in stock.
No changes were made to the amplifier production that year so it is identical to a 1964 but less expensive. I'm simply looking to get rid of it to buy the actual Blues Junior Cover for myself. Fits standard 1/4" diameter solid shaft amp and guitar pots.
Example: M1xxxxxx = 1991 No prefix – The first 2 numbers following the prefix is the year. The plant from which the COB serial number prefix models originate remains a mystery.
No documentation, or comment from the manufacturer has resolved the question of which plant produced them.
Looking at serial numbers next to the ’60 5G5 brown Pro Amp for example, we see numbers ranging from 00001 to 02000, suggesting that there are 2000 of these amplifiers made in ’60.
6 or 7-digit number Examples: VN7xxxxxx = 1997 made by Saehan/Sunghan.The Fender serial number decoder currently supports all documented MIA, MIJ, MIM, MIK and MII formats with the exception of Custom Shop, Relic and Reissue instruments.Please note that fender serial numbers tend to overlap by at least a year, and thereby the date of your guitar can only be approximated.Fender Frontman 15G Guitar Epiphone Valve Junior Peavey Rage 158 Dr Z Maz Fender Frontman 15G 75 Watt Guitar Amp Orange Tiny Terror 15 Boutique Amp Head Mesa Boogie Express 5 158 Guitar Amp Stack Guitar Amplifier Peavey Valveking 15R Guitar Fender Frontman 15G Guitar Amp Watt Class A Tube 15 Watt Tube Guitar Amp Tube Guitar Amp Head W Footswitch Combo 60 Watt Guitar Marshall Class 5 Tube Watt Electric Guitar Combo Amplifier 100 Watt 2X12 Guitar Combo Practice Peavey Backstage Marshall Jcm 800 Model Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier 100 Watt Vox Pathfinder 120 Watt All Tube 120 Watt Tube Line 6 Bogner Spider Valve Terror 15 Watt 100 Watt Tube Guitar Amp Head 50 Watt Guitar Amp Head Iii 15 Watt Peavey 6505 Plus Peavey 6505 Plus Marshall Class 5 1X12 Electric Guitar Vht Fryette 1X10 Combo Amplifier Guitar Amplifier Head W Footswitch 15 Watt Electric Guitar Guitar Amp Combo Excellent Tsl 100 Iii 1X12 Marshall Jcm 2000 Dsl 100 112 Electric Guitar 5 Watt Tube Guitar Mesa Boogie Mark Iii Marshall Mg Series Orange Rockerverb 50 Fender Princeton Chorus Junior Tweed Dual Super Lead Marshall Jvm410h Amp Head W Foot Watt Guitar Amp Excellent 6505 Plus Marshall Jcm 800 2204 Super Lead Guitar 120W Tube 1X12 15 Watt Fender Sp-10 Marshall Jcm 2000 Tsl Marshall Mg100hdfx Dsp Guitar Amp Portable Electric Guitar 120 Watt Guitar Amp 50 Watt Tube Guitar Amp Head Black Ln 1X12 Electric Guitar Amplifier Orange Amplifier Crush Guitar Amplifier Head 100W Head Handwired Sp-10 Guitar Dual Rectifier 100 65 Watt Guitar Amp Esteban Guitar Amplifier Amp Rivera Era Handwired Tube Amp Fender Hot Rod Deville Amp Head With Foot Switch Randall Mts Module Watt 1X10 Jazz Chorus 50 Watt 1X12 Head 5 Watt 20 Watt Tube Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Solo Head Marshall Jcm 800 Guitar 150 Watt Guitar Amp 50 Watt Amplifier Head 100 Watt 2X12 Combo Dsp Guitar Amplifier Electric Guitar Practice Amplifier 60 Watt Tube 40 Watt Tube Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Solo Watt 2X12 Tube Watt High Gain 5W Tube Orange Tiny Terror 15 Watt 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head Fender Cyber Marshall Jvm Line 6 Spider Valve Mkii Watt Stereo Guitar Marshall 50Th Anniversary Line 6 Spider Iii 15 50W Tube Guitar Ii 1X12 Watt Handwired Marshall Jcm 800 2203 Marshall Avt Jazz Chorus Guitar Fender Pro Jr Watt 1X10 Combo Roland Micro Cube Guitar Amp Tube Guitar Amp Head Black Plexi Tube Marshall Class 5 Combo 75 Watt Guitar Fender Twin Reverb 65 Reissue 120 Watt Guitar Amp Head Valvestate 2000 Head El34's Half Stack Guitar Dfx Guitar Handwired Guitar 20 Watt Guitar Amp Vox Night Train 100 Watt Tube Guitar Amp 5 Watt Guitar Amplifier Mesa Boogie Mark Ii C Peavey Studio Pro Deluxe Reverb Reissue 15 Electric Guitar Amplifier Fender Frontman 25R 1X10 Guitar Combo Amp Peavey Classic 30 Tube Fender Blues Jr Solid State Guitar Combo 50 Watt Plexi Head And 1X12 150 Watt Guitar Hot Rod Deluxe Amp 800 Guitar Amp Watt Electric Guitar Combo Mesa Boogie Mark Iv Guitar Amplifier No Reserve Boutique Guitar Tube 60 1X12 Egnater Tweaker Fender 65 Princeton Reverb 40W Tube Mts Module Combo Amplifier W Footswitch Amp Mods Crate Electric Guitar Amp Orange Tiny Terror Head Epiphone Valve Marshall Haze Portable Electric Guitar Amplifier 100W 2X12 50 Watt 2X12 Tube Electric Guitar Combo Peavey Bandit 112 Orange Rockerverb Evh 5150 Iii Watt Solid State Guitar Mesa Boogie Mark Ii Blues Junior Iii 10 Watt Practice Fender Concert Amp Bogner Shiva Egnater Rebel Limited Edition Guitar Amp Marshall Jcm 900 Model Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 1X12 Terror 15 30 Watt 1X12 10 Watt Electric Guitar Plus Guitar Amplifier Mesa Boogie Single Rectifier 5 Watt Class Mesa Boogie Studio Mkii Head Electric Guitar Amplifier Amp Head Rivera Era Marshall Clone Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier Peavey Bandit Peavey Solo Guitar Amplifier Local Stereo Tube Power Amp 30 1X12 Combo Marshall Lead 12 40W Tube Guitar 40 Watt Combo Micro Stack to let it go to someone new. I purchased it 100% stock but nothing lasts forever so I had a professional vintage amp tech work on it several times to dial it in.No cap was replaced that didn't absolutely have to go. Very clean shimmering tone with that vintage tube compression that no new amp has.
