What's the year? You've had it for 29 years, it must be deliciously road worn.
Its serialized as an E9 but the neck is dated 1990. I'm the original owner so I'm guessing it was built in 1990 and that's when I bought it. So I guess it's 28 years old and not 29. Shows you how you need to be skeptical of Fender serial numbers. They'll get you in the ballpark but you can't use them with certainty to identify the year. It does have that nice "played in" feel to it.
