How to Date your Fender Guitar by Serial Number
I have that same guitar with a similar serial number and I had the same concern as you The first 6 digits are paired off and the last two digits are taken singly.

Though examples also exist with the number on the headstock or the neck-plate in the case of certain early reissue models.
