FDP Forum / Fender Guitars: Stratocasters / Missing number in neck date



May 30th, 2017 05:27 AM   Edit   Profile  

Hi all and thank you in advance for your help. I'm looking to buy my first Fender Strat and came across a nice 1984 '57 Reissue. The pots have '82 dates and the neck has a pencil date of 10/26/ 4. If you look closely at the neck date, you can almost see an outline of where an 8 used to be but I can't be 100% sure. Does this look fishy? I've also ready about potential mismatch between the pots and neck dates. Two years seems like a big gap, still ok? Otherwise the guitar is in great condition and I see these normally sell for about $2500+. Thank again!
