  1. There are a few abbreviations used frequently here at TB that I can't figure out:

    NOS
    RI(always in reference to a Fender)
    OHSC

    Can you help me out guys?

    Endorsing Artist: Ernie Ball Music Man/Sterling By Music Man
    New Old Stock
    Reissue
    Original Hard Shell Case
     
  3. NOS - new old stock, meaning it is an old item that was never sold, thus it is theoretically still "new"

    RI - reissue, regarding fender's copies of their instruments from other eras

    OHSC - original hardshell case, self explanatory
