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
