Is there a chance this is a FAKE or are there spaces sometimes in Serial Numbers?
Hey, thanks for that Slash, do you know how reliable that site is?
The neck I was planning on getting genuine Fender for sure.
So where are some places to get good non-Fender Strat bodies?
It seems that no matter what number I put in, as long as I put in MN2 it says made in Mexico, if I put in N2 and make up a number it says made in Corona and so on.
Every number I made up seemed to be a real guitar serial. I think it gives them character and a well played look.

What I do know though is that Rory G's strat sounded as sweet as they come, but thats only my opinion of course. I own a Martin 12-string that was made in CF Martin's production facility in Mexico, and it is an unbelievably-awesome guitar.
I guess it STANDS FOR EIGHTY EIGHT but have never seen EE b4 only E8 for the same year....please someone put me out of my misery!!!! Steviesam after reading up some about it, it seems many people do relate the EE number to early american standards (years 1985-1988). You might find this (please click) Fender website helpful Post edited by: Slash, at: 2007/08/15 The "EE" designation is an "export" designation on the serial number. Bought around Jan 1987, American Standard Gunmetal blue with white pickguard.

A friend of mine recently bought a MIM Strat circa 1992. We've never come across this before and he didn't notice it before purchase.
The space is between the MN2 and the 6 digit number.
(face it...the headstock ain't right..just ain't a strat) what more could you ask for in a project guitar?
