    This is from 2008, it's amazing how out of date it is with the current models!

    Yeah, that's the one I was using, which is probably why I have "gaps." I think there was a web site someone here posted but the link is down, that was newer. Hopefully someone with more current data will see this...

    No takers, eh?

    Let me ask a more direct question, then...

    Does anyone know what the fretboard of a 2012 408 MT would be made of? Modcat looks to have the letter "N" for wood, and "4" for inlays, but I may have my spaces mixed up. PRS 2012 site just says "rosewood" but I thought I saw a review out here somewhere saying it was Honduran Rosewood?

    You may have already found out but in case you didn't "CC" is Custom Color.

    408 switching is different from Siggy switching in that it uses a 3-way blade instead of a 3-way toggle (e.g. McCarty). I think...
