Fender Banjo Serial Number


Fender Banjo Models

Just picked up an old Fender Artist, Bluegrass model. This is one of the
high-quality American made (Fullerton CA) banjos featuring a figured
American black walnut neck and resonator, rosewood fingerboard and headstock
overlay, nickel -might be chrome- plating, and somewhat clunky inlay
patters. Serial # B-1523. (It also has one of the old 'Reno' fiberglass
heads with a 'soundhole' in it!)
Anybody know if and where there might be a list of Fender banjo serial
numbers that can be used to date this critter? Fender says they don't have
the information, and although from various clues I'm pretty sure this is a
'70s instrument, I'd like to able to date it a little more accurately!
  • Like the body and neck dates, using serial numbers to date a Fender is not a sure bet. At many points in Fender's history, serial number usage overlapped again owing to the modular manner of production. Below we'll go into detail about the various serial number schemes employed by Fender as far back as 1950.
  • Where can one go to find detail of the serial number on a Fender banjo. The number is KD 02050854. Xnavyguy - Posted -: 12:12:08. I noticed in your profile that you own an FB-58. I also own an FB-58 SN KD 99050093. I bought mine used in early '08. I don't have a clue about it except that the K indicates it was built in Korea.
  • Listing is for a late 70's to early 80's Fender Leo Deluxe 5-string banjo, made in Japan. It's hard to date these banjos, but this one does appear to have a fairly early serial number on the label inside the pot, and no serial on the back of the headstock as the later models had.
