Squire bass serial number dating information
Given the modular nature of Fender's production techniques, a neck may have been produced in one year, placed in a warehouse and remained in stock for a period of time, and then subsequently paired with a body to create a complete guitar in the following year.
So, obviously a neck date, while being helpful in providing a date range of production, cannot be a definitive reference.
Tom Presley was hired as the Product Manager (also involved in marketing) to begin MPC project.
John Karpowitz was then hired to design & build Modular Powered Circuits (MPC) modules. Ties with Matsumoku are further solidified in 1981 and decision made to merge SLM Electra brand with Matsumoku's Westone brand.
