    I have a friend who has a collection of the odd musical item.
    He has a couple of old Fender 12" spkrs that just have the blue "Fender Special Speaker Design, Fender Musical Instruments, Inc.", over the back of the magnets.
    They look quite old, but he was wondering where/how he could find out who made them/how old/etc.
    Thanks for any help.

    There's two important things about FEnder speakers:
    Who built em and
    When

    If you can post a pic of the codes on the speaker basket (the metal part), or speaker rim, we can tell you both. It'll usually be a 6 or 7 digit number. The next number after that is often the model, which is very helpful with Jensen (220) or Oxford speakers, less so with others...
