    Just a quick question. Anyone name your guitars? And if you do, what are some of the names?

    Nope. It's kinda ridic to me. The factory gives them names for me -then at that point I say "the red one, the blue one.."

    I haven't yet. Until very recently, all my guitars were a different model, so I just referred to them in my head as "The Deluxe Strat", "The SE", "The SG Jr.", etc.

    As of yesterday, I now have two Bullet Telecasters, so I'm going to have to figure something out there.

  7. Seems on a few I have, and they seem to be the ones I've bought from women. I've used their names … Sarah, Mary and Tammy. A few others are boring … "all black" or simply the model used by the manufacturer.

    Cheers, Barrie.

    I named a couple, my wife doesn't like the names, "they sound like stripper names..." I have a honeyburst Epi LP named Miss Honey, and an Epi Wildkat named Miss Kitty ….nothing offensive, there

    I’ve only come up with a name for one guitar-say hello to “Mudflap” :)
    When I showed it to my dad, he said “That’s all decked out, like chrome mud flaps!” Which (I’m pretty sure) he meant like a car with a lot of shiny accessories. 33E1C3C5-1A76-4A0A-A8B4-607C2187254E.jpeg I’ve tried to come up with names for other guitars but nothing’s really “stuck”.

    I used to when I was younger and thought I’d hold onto them forever. Now after years of buying/selling/trading I’ve mostly given it up, with the exception of the fretless telebass in my avatar which I just call “thunder” cuz she will rattle your house apart.

    I've owned several guitars but only named one, the Ibanez RG I had till last year. It was colored violet, so I called it "Violet." I ended up selling it and buying my Squier Bullet Strat. I haven't named that one, partially because I like just calling it "The Strat."
