    In film production lingo, a "stinger" is an industrial strength power extension cord. Not sure if it means something different here.

    Here's one:

    Plek'ing: Sending your guitar out to be analyzed and adjusted by a PLEK machine, an automated laser-scanning, fret-shaving-and-polishing, neck adjusting device designed in Germany.

    A "stinger" is a guitar that has the back of its headstock painted black, ending in a pointed "sting" towards the neck. AFAIK, this is mostly to hide imperfections in the wood.

    Axe.. that actually took me a while to figure out it was the slang word for a guitar.
    I know I am not only one as someone else asked me that question a while ago.

    CS.. Custom Shop?

    It took me a while to find this thread, and when I did find it, I couldn't remember where I saw it.

    I think it would be a good idea to have this thread somewhere else, or maybe in FAQ or in the Introduction thread?

    Those that don't visit the Custom Shop thread that often would not read this.

    Thank you for the info..there were some slang words/abbrev... I didn't understand until now. :)
