I call my Washburn HB35S hollow body "Bertha" 'cause she has such a big, bodacious lower "Bout". My acoustics don't have names yet, they might but they haven't told me yet...

Bertha was going to be the nickname for "Alberta" - my EC Strat - but my wife chose "Birdie", so Birdie it is!!! :)

Back in the Late 70's I named my blonde Rickenbacker 4001 "Elbereth StarQueen".
I was heavily into Tolkien at the time.:unsure:
Hey- I may play slow, but I sure am imprecise!

Never thought of naming them,,,call my Ibanez and Seagull, just that and then call my new Santa Rosa classical, my classical. Guess I could just call it Rosa...being it's soooo pink. Actually, I figure one day I'll give it to my youngest...she's a pink fanatic..She's been playing violin not quit 2 years...but last year after a lesson we got back to town before the music store closed and she spotted a pink violin, on her own asked the owner what he would give for a trade in on her old one and whan we left she had a pink violin. ( She was10).Anyway, sorry for the ramblin'.
Blessings to all.

That is great about your daughter! I have never seen a pink violin - that must raise a few eyebrows! But good for her - if it keeps her happy and playing, that's a good thing. And I love individualists! :winkthumb:

Yeah, Rosa works for me!

everyone refers to my big orange gretch nashville as 'big momma'. i'm very small so it looks freakishly large when i'm playing.

I haven't named any of mine yet - if a name for any one or all of them strikes me at some point I wouldn't have any problem with it, but I'm not going to force it.

My firends hate my Blue Squier and they call it TORMENTOR !!!!! ...because sometimes is a pain in the @.... and the lack of the 22 freet.


However, I adore my cheap guitar.....

I've got a MIM Strat called Debbie and a Tanglewood TW15 called Sally. Less-favoured guitars (a Freshman 12-string electro-acoustic, a Variax 300 and a Yamaha classical) don't get named.

I asked my brother if he had a name for his Seagull. He said he hadn't but it sounded like a good idea so he'd think about it. A couple of weeks later, he came up with Stringy. Hmm.

I have heard the Keith Richard names all his guitars with girl's names, and they must all begin with "M". If I remember rightly, his current (at the time) was Marilyn.

Incidentally, last year I went to a book signing by Terry Pratchett and I asked Him to sign the book for Clare and Jenny (my proper daughters) and also Debbie and Sally. Initially, He called me tight-fisted for not buying a second book, but when I explained who Debbie and Sally were, He asked one of the shop assistants to make sure that I was escorted off the premises. :yeahhh:

*Two* insults from PTerry in one conversation must be worth a tee-shirt??!
