Examining the EIA manufacturers codes stamped on the amp's trannies is a more definitive method of determining the vintage (assuming the trannies are original to the amp).
Those numbers will reveal the precise week within a given year that the component was made.
Note the "hard" break angle on the bevel at the top of the cabinet. This was a hallmark of Fender amps produced late in the silverface era.
My '78 SFTR does not have this hard angle but my '80 Princeton did.
The Fender serial number decoder currently supports all documented MIA, MIJ, MIM, MIK and MII formats with the exception of Custom Shop, Relic and Reissue instruments.
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.
There are other methods used to date "Silverface" amps, you will need to get the date codes from your speaker frame, tube chart or pots.
Pots and speakers are usually stamped with a 6 or 7 digit code that can be dated as follows: The first 3 are the manufacturers code 137xxx = CTS 304xxx = Stackpole 140xxx = Clarostat 134xxx = Centralab 381xxx = Bourns 106xxx = Allen-Bradley Speaker Manufacturers codes 67xxx = Eminence 117xxx = Credence 137xxx = CTS 220xxx = Jensen 270xxx = Quam 285xxx = Rola 328xxx = Utah 391xxx = Altec/Lansing 433xxx = Cleveland 465xxx = Oxford 649xxx = EV 1098xxx = Pyle The next number(s) is (are) the year.
The EIA code will consist of 3 numbers followed by a date code of 3 or 4 numbers designating the year and the week.

Fender don't part with that kind of information*, so as part of the website I developed for this amp's care and feeding, I put out a call for serial numbers.
Eventually, I thought, I'll get a rough idea what the highest and lowest s/ns were.
Here is an example: EIA 606-4-21 would mean the 21st week of 1964.
It is also advisable to add about 6 months to the date to allow for time these parts may have spent in storage.
