Hello, I am hopeing that you might be able to help me with a neck date from a 69 telecaster. If you could I would be very grateful. This is the neck date. 3 28 043 B It is stamped in green ink, 3 for tele/ 28 for production number and the B for neck width. I believe these are characteristic for a 69/71 date, however the 043 I cannot work out, it appears to translate to an April 73 date to me, which in 73 Fender where using a totally different dateing system by that period. The rest of the tele does date to original 69. If you can please help me I would be very appreciative.
