Another method of dating a tweed Fender Champ is by serial number.On my 1959 tweed Champ amplifier, the serial number is located right in front of the fuse cap.So, obviously a neck date, while being helpful in providing a date range of production, it cannot be a definitive reference.Unlike the auto industry which has specific model years for their products, most specifications for a given Fender instrument model, change little if any, through the lifetime of the model.

But once again, due to the modular nature of Fender's production methods, and the fact that most serial numbers schemes are not sequential and usually overlap from between 2 to 4 years, (from the early days of Fender, through to the mid 1980s), dating by the serial number is not an exact science.While there have been periods where dramatic changes have occurred, for example: the transition periods between Leo's Fender and the CBS years, as well as the transition between CBS' Fender and the current ownership, generally speaking, most models are feature specific and do not change from year to year.Serial numbers are also helpful in determining the year of production of a given instrument.“Dating Fender Amps by Serial Number,”20th Century Guitar Magazine, Gagliano, G., March 1997, pp 28 – 29.“Dating Fender Amps by Serial Number, Part II,” 20th Century Guitar Magazine, Gagliano, G., November 1997, pp 46 – 48.
