The Fender serial number decoder currently supports all documented MIA, MIJ, MIM, MIK and MII formats with the exception of Custom Shop, Relic and Reissue instruments.
Please note that fender serial numbers tend to overlap by at least a year, and thereby the date of your guitar can only be approximated.
Some basic knowledge about the different wood types, neck and body profiles, pickups etc will help you in making the best choice.
Rosewood necks (or rosewood fretboard) has a slightly warmer tone with more mid range and perhaps an overall more balanced character.
Pickups can easily be replaced for a more desired tone but you can’t fix a dead resonance.
Consider it a bonus if the stock pickups are to your liking.
Don’t start by plugging it into a loud amp and lots of pedals but listen to the acoustics, the natural resonance and sustain.
If this sound and feels right, then it’s a guitar well worth considering.
