Dating Fender Tube Amps By Serial Number, Part 2 by Greg Gagliano Copyright 1997, 20th Century Guitar Magazine.
It's been about 6 months since Part 1 of this series was printed so I thought it would be a good time to give an update on the Fender amp research that I am doing along with Devin Riebe and Greg Huntington.
These say "Fender Electric Instruments." Depending on the model the use of these pre-CBS panels have been observed on amps as late as August 1965, except for Champs and Vibro Champs which had foil stickers on the back the chassis.
Fender must have had a million of these labels printed up since they appear on Champs and Vibro Champs well into 1966.
These 1965 codes begin with the letter "O." The code for the year 1966 is "P." However, someone in the factory apparently forgot to switch the stamper from "O" to "P" in January 1966.
