Fernandes Made In Japan neck plate difference

Post by OlafR » Fri May 21, 2021 9:39 am

Hi.

I have a Fernandes Le-2 in sunburst. Trying to get info I searched on the net.
I found out there are two different neck plate lay outs. One with "Made in Japan in the middle part and one on the lower part.

Question;

Does anyone know what the difference between these neck plates are?

Thanx.

This is the more common neck plate.

This is the more rare scrypt neck plate. I think these were from the earliest models.

So that means it only can be dated by pot serial?
97 K means november 1989?

This is better info for me. So with this I know it's built at Dyna Gakki in 1989.
