The serial number on the back of my X640s bass is 011353. Does anyone know how to decode that?

First number represents year 0=1980, next 2 numbers are the month 11=November and last digits are sequence numbers - how many built. This only works on stamped numbers on the back of the headstock with 6-7 numbers. Other Electra serial numbers cannot be decoded (such as the foil tag serial numbers) and some may be able to be decoded if they were made by a manufacturer that followed a system (Alvarez?).
