    Sent a few more missing pieces over to TFC directly (figured out that 25th Anniversary Shadow Birds are 'Q', for example!)

    One is a mystery though. I have a Mira 245 with the code 'D' for the fingerboard wood. That's not on the list - the published spec is 'rosewood' but it would be interesting to know why it's not the typical East Indian Rosewood code and what it might actually be instead. Unless they just changed the code for that model year?

    TFC has graciously coded the java for the modcat decoder. With TFC's help, I am in the process of setting up a semi-permanent host for the decoder as his is on a temporary site. That means I will need your additions and corrections here to maintain the database. Anyone with additions or corrections should post them here in this thread directly or PM me.

    This is a forum team effort. Together we can keep this decoder updated. We need you guys to look at your modcats and see if we still have missing data.

    I just emailed you the new data I got from Whitecat. If you need any help/instructions on maintaining the data file for the web page, just let me know.

    I've officially exhausted all my modcats! Nothing new from the final one, it returned the same bridge error as the other Stripped 58

    (code = 2 - represents the 2-piece stoptail on the recent Singlecuts I guess! - not in the db yet).

    Thanks whitecat!

    *****

    OK - we need member help.

    For a fingerboard wood "D" represents what?

    We're pretty sure it is a RW, but what kind of RW?

    UPDATE:

    The OP has been updated with new data and a new interactive decoder hosted in a semi-permanent location.

    I would ask that we don't link the decoder to other forums just yet. Let's run some codes through it and make sure the dataset is fairly accurate first.

    The interactive decoder worked great for both of mine. Now I know which one goes in which case!

    Anyone have an ME Quatro modcat handy? Reason I ask is that it's got a Dalbergia fretboard which isn't yet on the chart...

    Here's another addition to your database: SXM2F-HFI2T_EG_N6-6X

    It is a 2006 20th anniversary Singlecut Trem in Emerald Green with the 20th "Birds in Flight" inlay, non-10 top, PRS #6 T & B p/u. I have not seen another 20th Anniversary Singlecut Trem, so I'm pretty sure this is a somewhat rare bird (so to speak). The eagle tag date is 5/30/2006.

    I don't know why the electronics show up as "X". The electrics are the 3 way toggle with tap. Nothing special I don't think...

    I think the MODCAT for the McCarty Soapbar starts with "MO" rather than "MS" unless PRS changed the designation at some point. My Korina McCarty Soapbar MODCAT starts with "MO" anyhow. Otherwise, it recognized everything else in the code just fine.
