    Need help parsing a EBMM Build Code

    Hi All,
    Great community! I need help making sense of this build code that I got from the Serial Number Database (very cool this exists for EB guitars!)

    The Build Code is: 320-QG-11-00-CS-CR

    Does Serial in this code tell me it's a Custom Shop build and a Axis Super Sport with a basswood body? I don't want it if it is ash or alder. Thanks!

    There is no music man custom shop (not in the way Fender or Gibson do) and if it was a one-off instrument that is not part of the build code. The body wood is not part of the build code either. The build codes are...

    Body - Color - Neck - Pickguard - Case - Hardware

    In your case, 320 = Axis Super sport, trem, HH; QG is the color; 11 = maple neck with matching headstock; 00 = no pickguard; CS = standard case; CR = chrome heardware

    If you have the serial number enter it in this site and it will give the info and DOB as well.
