    That's not a 1984 American Standard...in fact in '84 that model didn´t even exist. American Standards were first issued in very late '86/early '87. The E4 serial number decals (left overs from the CBS years) were used until '89. The only way to know for sure the year your guitar was made is by looking at the neck pocket where you can find the actual date of completion.
    I'd bet that one is an '88. If you take a look at the neck pocket please let me know! :)

    Here's my old flame...a '64 Strat. Best guitar I ever owned in 40+ years in the game...but I was forced to sell her a few years ago when I unexpectedly lost my job :( and haven't since found a Strat that has her magic! Oh boy, how I miss her...:

    VaughanC, Beautiful guitar. Heartbreaker of a story. I tell you this though, imho its better to have known and experienced such a sweet axe than not.
