Starting in 1976, Fender transitioned to a new serial number scheme and moved the placement of most serial numbers to the headstock of the instrument.

The most important thing to keep in mind when dating a Fender is the highly modular nature of the designs.For starters, there's the Reverb Price Guide which has thousands of entries with pictures and details on various guitars and other gear.Some browsing around the Fender section of the Price Guide can definitely help you find which model you have.Here is what the neck date and body date look like from a 1952 Telecaster: If you're not comfortable removing the neck of a guitar to peek at the date marker, I encourage you to take it to a local tech or luthier.

I will also mention briefly pot-codes as a resource (numbers on the internal potentiometers of the guitar).These can definitely be useful in cases where no other numbers exist, but just tell when the pot itself was made.
