    That isn't a MODCAT number. 2000 is right around when the system started, so yours might pre-date it. If you do have one, the MODCAT will be in the bridge pickup rout and they used stick a label with it on the case.

    Stupid question and it may have been answered ..... The MODCAT number is the same number listed on the sticker attached to the case?

    Hey fellas, I cannot locate my MOD CAT see below. My guitar is a Wood Library CU24 Floyd.

    That same ITEM number: WL0805_U3 appears on a sticker on the back of the hang tag.

    Any Ideas?

    Wood Library models don’t use the MODCAT system.

    Hello, my guitar is a 2016 McCarty 10-Top Limited Edition.
    The fretboard is gaboon ebony with matching headstock.
    Pickups are the 58/15TM.
    Color is the rare Charcoal Blue Burst.
    The serial # is (16 233324).
    The MODCAT is (MCM2FTHFEBA_CE_H6-6M).
    Thank you very much for working hard on the MODCATS and I hope to have one for mine one day!

    PRS CE24 (Faded Grey Black Cherry Burst Satin):

    As it didn't come with a case I guess it's that part on the sticker on the gig bag:
    <serial number> E4TBC3_GE_NSN_-NE

    Model: Could not find Model 'E4'
    Top Wood: Could not find Top Wood 'T'
    Frets: Could not find Frets 'B'
    Top Spec: Could not find Top Spec 'C'
    Top Grade: Could not find Top Grade '3'
    Neck Wood: Could not find Neck Wood '_'
    Neck Carve: Grissom
    Fingerboard Wood: Gaboon Ebony
    Inlay: Could not find Inlay '_'
    Bridge: Could not find Bridge 'N'
    Color: Slate/Natural Back
    Hardware: Nickel
    Treble Pickup: 12 String
    Middle Pickup: Could not find Middle Pickup 'undefined'
    Bass Pickup: Could not find Bass Pickup 'undefined'
    Electronics: Could not find Electronics 'undefined'

    The whole scheme looks somewhat different to what I've seen here so far...

    Here's the details:
    http://www.prsguitarseurope.com/2017/05/2017-limited-edition-satin-nitro-ce-models/

    Or is only input needed from models up to 2013?

    Hmmmmmm......The link in the original post can't seem to decode my model. It can get everything except for the "CB" in the beginning. I am assuming it is just "Custom Briazilian"....but the decoder doesn't come up with it.
