    I had an idea. For forum purposes, should we refer to the new "Sterling by Music Man" as SMM?

    For example, "I like my MM Sterling, but I was thinking about getting a SMM Ray," would translate to, "I like my Music Man Sterling, but I was thinking about getting a Sterling by Music Man Ray."

    Just me?

    I think the easiest way is EBMM and SbMM.

    I used MM instead of EBMM but I did adopt using SbMM in the other thread. I like that abbreviation it works for me.

    Cheap ones and expensive ones
     
  9. Why not call them by name? The Ray34 and the SB14? Or is that too easy? :)

    I'm not suggesting anyone adopt my protocol, but we do tend to use a lot of abbreviations (MIJ, ERB, STP, LSD, CIJ, MIA, AWOL, EBMM) so - to ME - EBMM and SbMM seem easy, and then adding the model afterward like we do with Fender, just as an example.

    Thus:

    MIJ 62 RI J - wow, I even know what that means.
    SbMM Ray34 - I think I can remember that.

    But it'll shake itself out to the easiest level - it always does!
