Pre Ernie Ball Sting Ray Bass Serials

    Guys...I collect serial numbers for Pre EB 'Rays. They are 'NORMALLY' prefixed with the letter "B" and then followed by 6 digits. Just lately I've come across two Basses with a completely different numbering system to that described and, from what I can gather, they must be rare. These serials start with the digit "8" followed by another 5 digits.

    Can anyone shed light on this...does anyone have a Pre EB serial starting with "8" as opposed to the letter "B".

    Cheers (A.K.A. "Rod Trussbroken" other Forums).

    Try emailing the G&L company to see if they maintain the MM serials or if they can point you in the right direction. I know that Ernie Ball does not have this information. I took a tour of the G&L facility and they still have the old MM logos everywhere.
