Please note that fender serial numbers tend to overlap by at least a year, and thereby the date of your guitar can only be approximated.Fender began producing instruments in its Ensenada, Mexico, factory in 1990.Given the modular nature of Fender's production techniques, a neck may have been produced in one year, placed in a warehouse and remained in stock for a period of time, and then subsequently paired with a body to create a complete guitar in the following year.
If you pull the neck off of a MIM Strat you'll probably find a date stamp on the end of the neck (the portion that rests in the pocket).
This will tell you if the neck was indeed made in Fender's storied Mexico plant.
I've seen brand new Fenders with different months or years..both different pieces.
So, as for your dilemma; for all intents and purposes, if you find those markings on your parts...it's probably legit and original.
Now, whether those neck and pocket stamps being of the same month and year signifies that, that particular neck being married to that particular body on that date therefore being completely original is beyond me.
You'd have to call in the big boys at Fender to help you out with that.
