Neck-dating can be useful in determining the was produced, rather than the complete instrument.Given the modular nature of Fender production techniques, an individual neck may have been produced in a given year, then stored for a period of time before being paired with a body to create a complete guitar, perhaps, for example, in the following year.While there have been periods of dramatic change—such as the transition periods between the Leo Fender years and the CBS years or the transition between the CBS years and the current ownership—most models are generally feature-specific and do not change from year to year.Serial numbers are also helpful in determining an instrument’s production year.

Also (here's a joke on me that I wouldn't tell if I knew you) I was contemplating "upgrading" the pickups; turns out that it came stock with the Seymour Duncans I had in mind.

Also for the reading the directions on the page that specified the best resource.
