The MN is Mexican made, and the first number afterwards is the year or 2005. The following numbers precede to colour, neck wood, ect...

If it was made in 1975 then it wouldn't have been made in Mexico. Fender didn't start producing basses out of the USA until about 1980 or 81, and they were made in Japan under the Squire name.
