Rosewood fingerboards of 1970's Strats retain the "round-lam" style started in the 60's where a thin laminate is glued onto the curved Maple neck surface. Body Routings: In the 1970's profiles of the pickup routings became slightly wide and squared on the ends. Hardtail models also aquired a dollar sized impression just over 1/4" deep in the bridge pickup rout.Not sure of the function, it must have something to do with the machining process (a guide of some sort, perhaps).

They are believed to just be some kind of quality check stamps.
Pot Codes: MMMYYWW Example: 1377818 - In 1977 found on the side of the pots, moved to the bottom (and unfortunately sometimes covered with solder) in 1978.
Large Letter Stamps: Not 100% sure what these mean, but I have a theory they were used to grade a body prior to recieving a finish. I have seen four A stamps on Natural finished bodies, and a trans-red with an A stamp. I have also seen a D, along with an A on a Sunburst body.
This is just a theory, but if only A's were put on Natural finished guitars as an example, it could help determine if a guitar is refinished.
In this case it stands for the 3rd week of 1980 and was a Thursday.
Ignore all the "FRR" stamps you'll find on the neck base and in the neck pocket.
Most Natural and Sunburts finished guitars seem to be three-piece bodies, painted ones may be more.
Necks are Maple, and are constructed from one complete piece if they have a Maple fingerboard.
Neck Configuration Codes: 00 = Rosewood fingerboard 01 = Rosewood fingerboard 02 = Maple fingerboard 03 = Maple fingerboard Neck & Body Stamps: WWYD Example: 0304 - Basically the same as the date portion of the nine digit neck stamp although in black ink.
