Does anyone have a list of what the letters stand for with the various acronyms? I have heard that S is for Saber. What about SV, SA, GSA, RG, RGA, GIO and so on. Also, a general description (other than the catalog would be nice) of each group.

Thanks!

I know RG stands for Roadstar Guitar. A stands for "Arched", so RGA means Roadstar Guitar Arched. Same with SA.

RG-Typical super strat, 24 fret and double cutaway, soft and hard tail models
RGA-Archtop RG with fixed bridge
S-22 fret super strat with thin, lightweight body. New ones have the ZR trem
SA-Arched top, flatted back Sabers, have non-locking trems
SV-Sabers with non-locking trems, new ones have the SynchroniZR trem and True Duo pickup systems
GIO-Poopy budget line RG models. Actually a lot better than most other brands' budget lines.
GSA-GIO version of the SA line
Attention noobzors:
THE PICKUP GUIDE
THE TREM GUIDE

Yes that's mine.. and it IS real Mother of Pearl.. inlaid in Ebony!

The GIOs aren't all RGs. Basically the GIOs stick a G in front of whatever line they're the budget model of, so you have:

RG->GRG
AX->GAX
SZ->GSZ
RX->GRX
SA->GSA

There has never been a GS, as far as I know.
