    In the Fender lexicon, it originally meant "figured maple top." But Fender buyers got all confused because the FMT models included the quilted maple tops (one of which I own). Eventually, they dubbed the quilted tops "QMT", thereby freeing "FMT" to describe the flamed maple tops.

    Yeah, but "figured" is more accurate because I've seen 'em in quilt! :bag:

    Don't buy an FMT bass unless you want the Dept of Homeland Security knockin' on your door.

    You've been warned!
