Use the latest one to give you a good idea of when it was made.For example, if your silverface super reverb has transformer codes all from 1974, it was made in 1974! Based on the last number (45), it’s safe to say it was made in late 1974.
I recently picked up a Fender Bassman 100 and started googling for it.
I found out that it probably (I'm not 100% sure) is a silverface model, please correct me if I'm wrong.
As the topic states I'd very much like to find out what year is was made and if possible what kind of schematic it may have.
Now if it’s a blackface amp, it’s a safe bet that 6 means 1966. This code can be found on the power transformer, output transformer, choke, and reverb transformer.
They are all usually within a few months of each other.
