    Is there a list of some of the terms and abbreviations that seem to crop up a lot around here? I was looking for a FAQ or dictionary in the newbies section but I couldn't see anything; maybe there could be a sticky? :)

    Some clarification:

    Common (item) fillers are G (guitar), A (amp), B (bass) and FLK (fuzzy little kitten).

    Common country of origin codes are A (America), C (China), M (Mexico), I (Indonesia), and TFD (The Fathomless Depths).
