Korean Squiers: C refers to Cort, V refers to Saehan(Sunghan), S was already taken by Samick so Saehan(Sunghan) used V instead (Saehan(Sunghan) made the Vester guitars). The second character refers to the decade: N represents Nineties (1990's). So, for example "CN6" = made by Cort in 1996 and "VN6" = made by Saehan(Sunghan) in 1996.
Exceptions: Pro-Tone Series (solid ash bodies) had serial numbers with either a) no preceding letters and 7 digits, with the first number being the year, or b) starting with KC for Korean Cort, followed by 2-digit year.
By '85/'86 the headstocks on the Fender copies are not exact replicas of a Fender headstock.
It may sound like a cliché but you need to be at one with the guitar for the inspiration to flow.
The other indicator on Fender copies is the Tokai logo on the headstock.
At some point in time the 'T' was changed from a backwards 'F' look to a normal looking 'T'.
The KC and KV forms are apparently associated with the change to Crafted in Korea.
So, post-1996 models only would have this form of serial number.
