    It would make more sense if F were the 7th letter of the alphabet but after counting it out with my limited intellect I have come to the conclusion that F is the 6th letter of the English alphabet. So shouldn't that trendy spelling of Fender actually be 6ENDER?

    In the pre-CBS years there were extensive discussions as to whether they should move F letter in the 7th position but it was dropped in favor of changing the Zed to Zee.

    No, 7 is a T. However, and this is where people get it wrong, T is not a 7.

    I suck, but nobody really notices
    It is the way they write it. My name is JC Nelson. When I sign my name, the whole thing just looks like two Ns.

    Well, F is the b7 of G, G being the 7th letter.
    (b7 of 7).

    If you play that note on a b-bender 7ender, you get a b7 on a bb7ender.
    (b7 bb7).

    Unless you parked you battleship on b7, then you have a battleship 7ender bender.
    (b7 b7b).

    Not to quibble, but F# is the 7th of G major. Maybe you meant G7 (Dominant) rather than G major.

    The '7' resembles the script F, in Fender.
