On the inside of your vintage Fender amplifier there is a paper chart with the tube locations for that particular model. On the tube chart there will be a rubber ink stamp with two letters.
In the chart below you will see the letters that coincide with the year and month of the amps manufacture.
The first letter is the year and the second letter is the month. If the tube chart is not in the amp or has been torn or damaged and you cannot read the ink stamped letters you can date the amp by the codes on the potentiometers.
Pots and speakers are usually stamped with a 6 or 7 digit code that can be dated as follows: The first 3 are the manufacturers code 137xxx = CTS 304xxx = Stackpole 140xxx = Clarostat 134xxx = Centralab 381xxx = Bourns 106xxx = Allen-Bradley Speaker Manufacturers codes 67xxx = Eminence 117xxx = Credence 137xxx = CTS 220xxx = Jensen 270xxx = Quam 285xxx = Rola 328xxx = Utah 391xxx = Altec/Lansing 433xxx = Cleveland 465xxx = Oxford 649xxx = EV 1098xxx = Pyle The next number(s) is (are) the year.
Neither the date nor the value can be determined from the serial number.
