.... what did the originals have and what are the reissues supposed to come with? I've seen them both with stamped serial numbers on the plate and other without any SN.

pic? Sounds like you have a replacement bridge that says 'Fender Pat. Pend' but no number.I just got a "thin skin" AVRI52 from Dave's Guitar and there's no SN on the bridge plate. The SN is on the neck plate, and in the case was a Custom Neck Plate. Is this correct? Don't most 52's have the SN on the bridge plate also? I need expert advice before I call Dave's.

Do you have the six saddle vintage bridge by any chance?Why would there be a replacement bridge on a brand new guitar? I thought I was buying a new guitar, it sure looks new. Where the SN should be on the bridge plate is smooth metal, and from there to the saddle mounts it's like ruffed up metal. Is there something askew here? Need expert advice. Thanks in advance.
Its not MIJ it would say MIJ or CIJ on the neck near the bottom, also CIJ have decals underneath the finish not on top. I can't believe nobody owns a thinskin and can confirm the serial number on the bridge. Go to TDPRI Im sure they have thinskins there.I really want to know what I've gotten myself into here. I thought I was buying an AVRI52 thin skin from Dave's. On the neck plate (on the guitar) is SE04335. On the bridge plate(3 barrel) it says Fender Pat. Pending(no numbers). I got a neck plate in an envelope from Daves that says Special Edition. Did I buy a MIJ RI or is this an American Made thin skin special run AVRI52? I'm starting to worry a bit now.
Well, I've got an even weirder one. I've got a 60th Anni with the wood insignia inlay. However, mine only has the serial number on the bridge, and a plain neck plate. It was sold to me as a 52 reissue. The story from the Fender rep was that they turned out a few more bodies than the thousand originally called for in case they screwed some up and these "overages" were shipped out as 52 reissues. Don't know how many might be out there. But I've got one of the few natural finish 52s with nocaster p/ups!Boris, The 6 saddle set up was in the case. I haven't looked at the plate to see if there are any numbers on it. Mine came with the 3 brass barrels, and the funky looking plate, W/O SN's. Also included in the case candy was a Custom Shop neck plate. I'm just concerned about the bridge plate. Thanks again.
