During November 1954, Fender introduced the newly designed 5D6 Bassman amplifier offering four ten inch speakers and was designed utilizing two rectifier tubes.The 5D6 was a major departure from the earlier 5B6 Fender Bassman model.The Japanese MIJ (Made in Japan) Squiers were made by Fuji Gen up to 1997 and the Japanese CIJ (Crafted in Japan) Squiers were made by Tokai and Dyna from 1997.Mexican Squiers MN: M = Mexico, N = Nineties (1990s), the first number following the serial number prefix is the year.For example * "MN8" indicates that it was made at Ensenada, Mexico in 1998. Some of them have a serial number with a E = Eighties (1980s) prefix, and some of them have a serial number with a N = Nineties (1990s) prefix.
From my experience, any serial number below V016000 denotes a guitar made at the fullerton plant (1982-1984).
Designed by Freddie Tavares, longtime R&D man at Fender, Instead of the single 15" speaker, four 10" Jensen Alnico P10R speakers were used.
