    Usually(always?) the neck joint will have date stamps.
    This Site has some listings of serial numbers that you can compare against, it should give you a decent idea if you don't want to or can't take the bass apart.
    I't s also a great general resource for MM basses.

    It's also a good practice to disassemble each bass you buy! :) I do and just can't fight that. As soon as I have it in my hands I get desperate to drive home and totally tear it apart. In the case oc Musicmans, it's such a pleasure to watch every detail and see how well constructed these basses are. Good luck!

    You can ask on the Ernie Ball forum for a DOB if you have the serial number. Date stamps don't always tie up with the date the instrument was completed, although that's rare.
