    What year was my McCarty made?

    I am not sure if my PRS was made in 2005 or 1995. Serial number is 050648. Also, what do all the numbers represent? Thank you all so much!

    Actually I think it's a 2000 model

    I am having a hard time understanding the difference between 1995 and 2005 s/n. I am pretty sure it is not a 2000...but would love to hear from other PRS experts out there. Thank you so much!

    The first # is the year. A 1990, 2000 begin with a "0", followed by the rest of the serial #. That signifies the XXX # set neck guitar they've made. There is usually a slight gap between the first and other #s.

    For example, I have a guitar made in 2000. It's serial # is 0 52XXX, meaning it's the 52XXXth set neck guitar, and it was made in 2000. So, your guitar, that's 0 50648 is right in line with that serial # range of that year.

    In 2008, they began using an addition "0" at the beginning of the serial #, to avoid confusion with the 1990-99 guitars and the 1985-89 guitars. My 2008 guitars serial #s are in the 08 135XXX-140XXX range...

    Hope this helps..

    If you don't believe us you could always pop out the pickups, there will be a date (or 2) written under them
