    Hey there bottom dwellers! Long time reader, first time poster.
    Can any of you please help me with the meaning of a few acronyms that I have come across that have me scratching my head.
    The first one is probably more "forum" based and that is 'OP'. (Original Post(er)?)
    How about 'GAS'? (Gear Acquisition Syndrome?)
    And my last, "SCPB'? (Super Custom Personal Build?) (that one I pulled out of my... hat.)
    Any corrections or other relevant acronyms are much appreciated.
    I have been reading the TalkBass forum for some time so I realize this may take off in a direction I never anticipated, but hey, I'm game.

    Welcome to posting on TB! You’re right on the first two. SCPB= single coil precision bass, the early Fender P basses with single coil pickups.

    I thought there was a common TB acronyms sticky thread somewhere, but I may be wrong. Maybe in the wiki.
