    I sent my wife a link to the posting for this guitar on reverb a few months back and jokingly asked her what we had in the budget to upgrade my guitar. Later she asked if I was going to buy it, and I just laughed and said it was way too much. Didn't think much of it after that.

    A week later a box showed up on the porch....what an amazing surprise! Both my wife and the guitar are keepers!

    My favorites from your collection Steve! I've already said it many times before, but it's worth saying again, the Faded Whale Blue is quite special. What a beautiful top!!!

    Thanks for the suggestion, jcha, but sorry to say, I'm a total newbie with MODCAT stuff. So I guess that it's finally time to learn.
    Hmm. MODCAT is something printed under the pickups, right? But you're saying that there's also something on the case?
    I suppose I'm being lazy, but I was kinda hoping that I wouldn't need to go yanking parts out. lol
    (Anyway, my Stripped 58 is in the shop now for some tweaks, so I can't check it until next week. But I will. Thanks again.)

    The MODCAT usually refers to the barcode on the case of the guitar. Many times it gives the finish and model on it. It is also underneath the pickups as you mentioned as well. Take a look when you get it back from the shop and we can solve the mystery :cool:.

    Awesome.

    Studios are way underappreciated, IMHO!

    Well, better late than never. My Stripped 58 finally came home yesterday after a few tweaks, and I was happy to see a PRS sticker on the end of the case! (I have several other PRSes and don't recall there usually being stickers on my cases—at least by the time I get them, usually minty used. Happy to find a MODCAT sticker on this baby!)

    So... I put it through the MODCAT Decoder, and there it was, my guitar's info. SO cool to see all those specs! And apparently the "BT" on the sticker indicates it is indeed Black Slate. Great to finally know, ya know?! So thanks again to Herr Squid and jcha008. (But I still think it looks kinda blue-green, especially for a Black Slate guitar—again, sounding like a more neutral color, IMO. Eh, whatever. I still love the color, no matter what it's called!)

    Herr Squid... is your guitar a satin finish? Just curious. Looks like it from here and I love it. Or is it maybe the lighting somehow? (Also it's a beautiful color combination with the gold knobs and natural brown finish, esp in the cutaway, contrasting as complements to the overall slight blue-greenish color.) Thx!

    Yep, that is a satin finish; it's glossing a bit where my fingers brush it below the strings, but that doesn't really show in that photo.

    I see I forgot to say your SC is absolutely gorgeous in that color.

    I bought mine partially on eye appeal, and partially because it was a close cousin of my Modern Eagle, which is a satin Slate finish. Slate is kind of a blue with maybe a little gray to it, while Black Slate has got the greenish tint to it. Why they named it what they did, I have no idea. That baffles me almost as much as "Obsidian" which to me looks like kind of a green-olivey color, whereas polished obsidian is one of the blackest, glossiest things you can imagine looking at...

    Once I clicked through I could see the images, but Photobucket has implemented their "no third-party links" block on your photos for direct viewing in-thread.

    Unless you wanna pony up for their higher package, you might wanna consider switching to Imgur or even your own website.

    And nice guitar!

    I have a Crab Blue CU24. Not sure why I didn't post it sooner with my 594.
