What do you mean? Where have you seen F.R.E.D. used as an acronym?

If you're referring to Joe's bridge pickup of choice, it's just the development name that DiMarzio had for it prior to release. If memory serves correctly, they had several prototype pickups with various Flintstones character names. FRED was the one Joe liked best.

I'm so glad he didn't pick Wilma, then again, we'd still be having fun with that one

So I think there must be a meaning behind "PAF" too...

F.R.E.D. stands for ****ing Retard Extra Dumb in the military, it was one of the phrases I used to describe my "F.R.E.D." corporal

So someone joined and named themselves F.R.E.D. just to bump this 9 year old thread.
