just wondering, last July I purchased a beautiful Bernie Marsden edition. Fast forward to day before yesterday, I picked up a Custom Semi-hollow body at Sam Ash on close out for $399. I was comparing serial numbers and was wondering if the 2 were born on the same day. Bernies serial number M094763 the SHB is M09470. Only 7 digits away. Is there anything in the numbers that tell you the date? I know the M is for the year, but that's all I know.
