TYPE PR:839 ??

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know what the reference; TYPE PR : 839 means?


It's on the headstock of my newly acquired Squier Jazz Bass Deluxe IV which is Indonesian made, in the CORT factory back in 2015.


I emailed Fender this morning to see what they say, just waiting for a reply.

@casapete I also thought that `PR' might stand for Product Reference but, I've not seen that style of reference on any other Squier basses before.


Hopefully Fender can satisfy my curiosity....when they eventually reply to me.

The official reply from Fender / Squier is;


"The PR number is a reference to the product development project. Each product we make will have a reference number through the R&D stages and on these particular instruments, it was kept on them during production. It is essentially the technical model number."


So now we know 👍
