    Guide to Abbreviations

    • SC = Stratocaster
    • TC = Telecaster
    • PB = Precision bass
    • JB = Jazz bass
    • LP = Les Paul

    Machine heads

    • 3L3R = 3left 3right
    • 6L = 6 in line
    • 4L = 4 in line, for bass guitars


    We describe the orientation of our machineheads by which side of the headstock they are on - when looking face on to the guitar in an upright position (as if on a stand). Therefore 3L3R = for a Les Paul style, 6L for a statocaster style, 6R for a left-handed or reverse head stock.
