EDIT** So after digging a little more, I came across this site, www.fenderreissue.com, which has just about as much info on 62' reissues that you would need. So I was reading through their site and saw this: http://www.fenderreissue.com/corona/1989-fender-62-reissue-stratocaster-0 it's the exact guitar I just posted about...The serial, the handwritten date on the neck and markings in the neck pocket and pickup cavities are identical. Just about all the verification I need. HOW CRAZY IS THAT!!! I recently came across this guitar and was hoping for a little help in identifying it's authenticity. I've attached some pics so hopefully you guys will be able to help me out. the neck has a penciled in date of 2-10-89, though it's pretty difficult to see. the downside of trying to authenticate this is that the serials for these guitars were stamped on the neck plate. Take a look and tell me what you guys think. Any indicators?
