There is an unwritten law that guitars MUST be named after a girl. It would help to pick a name if we know what guitar you want to name.

My guitars have female names

S470 = Ruby (it's red)
RG550 = Anastasia (a female dog of an ex girlfriend, but I thought she had a gorgeous name, and it was what sprang to mind when I picked up the guitar for the first time)
DV8-R = Lucretia (Mustaine signature, named after a deth song tongue.gif)
Gryphon = Gladys (I don't much like that guitar, and I don't much like the name, but Gladys the Gryphon seems to work).


All that said, I don't think I've ever even said their names aloud.

Don't think you should ask for help on this, but I also don't think you should name your guitar after an old Quake multiplayer map (Necropolis)

Not too original with mine I`m afraid.

My guitars are:

Jackson is just Jacky
Ibanez is Ibby
Fender is Bud (Buddy Guy sig model)
and I`ve got an OLP that I call Olly

Not sure what I`m gunna call my new guitar when it arrives tho, have to wait till I see it and see what springs to mind.

My wife thinks I`m strange when she`ll say "oh you dont play that blue one much these days" and I`ll say "what? Ibby?, nah its having a rest I`m giving Jacky an airing at the moment" laugh.gif

oh man.. I think I had a guitar once that I named, but I can´t remember what. All my guitars are unnamed.. Need to think about this very carefully. Give them appropriate names. Don´t want to make any of them sad.

I dont think it necessarily has to be a girls name.

For example, my Washburn Dime V is always tuned to C and below, and i use it for Death/ Thrash/ Black metal and super heavy/ technical stuff, and that kinda thing doesnt fit as girls name.

So pick whatever you want!

Since were all adding ours, ill add mine smile.gif

Ibanez RG350MDX - Alustriel
Washburn Dimebag Signature V - Unas
Dean MS STD V - Dahlia
Jackson JS30 - Spare Parts (because it is)
Acoustic (Nameless) - Aeris
