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.
