I would like to know if its possible to date my recently bought used Fernandes 60's Custom Tele "The Revival" by the serial number. The number is on a white sticker on the back of the headstock and not on the neckplate. It reads 04812.
Any hints would be welcome.

Steve,Fernandes dating is very difficult.You can know the era only.For Europe,Revival series are from 90,s and there were several models: R-8,R-9 for strats
R-5,6,7 for teles
R-2 for LPs

R-6 were the high end model,all maple neck and ash body,2 strings tree.You can see a picture on guitarist site.
R5 & R-6 baswood body,
R-9 high end model for strat,baswood body,but I am not sure.
Dating are from 90-97 more or less.
Different headstock.

Then were LE models for strat: LE-1 & 2,baswood body and TE-models 1,2 & 3thinline)

I hope this help.
