The Fender serial number decoder currently supports all documented MIA, MIJ and
MIM formats with the exception of Custom Shop, Relic and Reissue instruments.
Fender Squire guitars are also not supported at this time. 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.
The Guitardater Project cannot verify the authenticity of ANY Guitar,
this site is simply meant as a tool to satisfy the curiosity of guitar enthusiasts.
This website possesses NO DATABASE of guitars made by manufactures,
instead simple serial code patterns that are available on this site and in the wider guitar community are used.
It follows that potential scammers can use this knowledge to try to trick unsuspecting buyers.
If you have any doubts as to a guitars’ authenticity please contact the guitar manufacturer before your purchase.
