    I have a few codes to add.

    But "OR" is definitely "orange". All I can think of is that the actual modcat for your guitar is somehow wrong or the guitar got refinished or had its color changed at some point, maybe even before it left the factory.

    Thanks, I ordered it built to spec for me, so I will have to contact customer service and find out what's up.

    Antique natural is "OA". Maybe what you're seeing as "OR" is actually "OA"? Easy mistake to make if your eyes are like mine. :)

    He he he, we must have the same eyes :D
    Just checked my case again, and that R could very well be an A.
    Must be the font they use on the case sticker.

    Your decoder was spot on for my Custom 22. I bought it used, so this was a lot of help(and fun!)

    My ME Quatro in Faded Blue Jean with 53-10's is EQM2FAIFIES_FB_H1-13. I feel certain the character designation 1 is for 53-10's. Do not know why it it starts with "EQ"? Eagle Quatro maybe, seems reasonable:dontknow:

    Hey Ruger,

    I think I've got a couple new values for you. "6" seems to be the 2014 birds value, and "OS" must be Obsidian for color.

    You've done an awesome job on this!

    Hmm cool. We could put that into a webpage to where you just type it in & it'll spit out the meaning of the code so you don't have to sit there & meticulously look through it yourself.
