Well, we sometimes talk about non-offsets, and the lingo should be consistent with what the other boards use. For all of the models, looking at the other major boards, I think "AVRI" (AVRI 57, AVRI 62, etc) has emerged as the consensus designation for the pre-2012 American Vintage Reissues, and AV (AV56, AV65, etc) for the 2012-on American Vintage series. For CS, we all seem to say "CS" ("CS '61 Relic" or whatever).

I came over here looking for "KO" (in the guitar sense not Mortal Kombat :D ) since I've been seeing it a lot lately and have no clue. It should probably be added to the main page.

Also "KC" for Kurt Cobain as I've seen a number of his Jag model talked about..

Great List, just what I was after. I couldn't work out what LPB was until i found it in this list.

GAS can never be cured but its symptoms can be temporarily alleviated through Frequently Applied Retail Therapy. Still trying to come up with an acronym for that one.

This has been bugging me over the last few weeks- WTF is this "FSR" that I see on lots of fender listings?

*EDIT*: Ah- Google is my friend...

FSR stands for "Fender Special Run"

Blimey. What a crazy lot of Acronyms.

Personally I’m with Elon, they should be banned! ::)
