The Fine Art of Naming Your Guitar

Recommended Posts

The (concept) guitars name is F'log and I don't give 2 shits if someone else doesn't approve of the naming.
:lol:

that is freaking awesome, love those GT-40's

 

How did you create that? Is that some kind of 3-d modeling software?

Thanks. Yes, I used 3D modeling for the parts, photoshop for the graphics and a 3D renderer for the final renders. It's rough in spots and the top is flat but for not having worked with a 3D modelling program in about 10 years I was happy with the results.

I've only named TWO Guitars

 

My first Les Paul I named "Lester", and that was actually original for me, but of course I've come to find that it is oh so common

 

And then I got myself one of these

and my wife and I began calling it "Big Red". But I own a lot more than those two guitars, but only two were deserving of the anthropomorphism.

The only guitar I ever named was my first. I bought this Vantage new in the early 80s and always called it "Blue Wail".

No lady names. Does that lose? Oh well. What if I was gay and wanted to name a guitar a manly man name?

I used to call my 1963 black Strat 'The Old Bastard' because it was so mean and cranky ...

 

But it's now 'The Old Soldier' because (a) 'bastard' implies that it was put together post-facto from bits, which it wasn't, and (b) because when my modern Custom Shop Strat started to misbehave, the ancient heirloom which I considered pretty much retired stepped up to the plate and sounded fantastic, felt great and proved ultra-reliable.

Lenny was his wife...

 

Really? Did not know.

But still... When one hears "Lenny" most people wouldn't think it was a woman...

Yup, but I hear you on that. Lenny is short for Lenore. She (along with Rene Martinez I believe) bought him the guitar from a pawn shop.

Also unacceptable: naming the guitar after a fictional character

 

Uh oh. Only one of my guitars has a name, and that's my Strat, Natasha, named after Natasha Fatale. :(

And he wrote the instrumental "Lenny" on that guitar.

Next, you have to choose an
old-fashioned
ladies name. It can't be anything that a 24 year old would name is newborn baby daughter in the year 2010. Don't call your guitar "Kylie" or "MacKenzie" or "Schuyler" or "Caitlin".

My wife, born in 1979, is "Kylie", so I guess that is out.
