    The "A629176" - is it on a QA sticker?

    All Fender amplifiers, manufactured after 1989 include a date code on the amplifier.
    This code is located on the "QA" (Quality Assurance) sticker, which may be found on the back of the amp chassis. The sticker is a Black and Silver label, which contains several lines for "sign-offs" at the completion of sound and electrical tests, where applicable. The last line will have 2 letters of the alphabet either printed or written by hand. Good luck reading some of the hand written ones. These letters are the production date code for the amplifier. The first letter refers to the year, and the second letter refers to the month of manufacture.

    1999-J

    James was so stoked he forgot to come back. Hope he didn't touch the wrong wire.

    It's very interesting... these people take time to join and post; but many times don't bother to check back.... what's up with that? Do we HAVE to leave the door open for them?
