I named my Hellraiser "Cecilia", after the patron saint of music. We're very happy together.

I usually name my guitars after a special lady in my life at that time. Even if we break up, I consider that name to be independent of the person it was based on, so I don't change the name no matter how bad the break up. Right now though, I'm single biggrin.gif

My epiphone "slasher" as it were, was named "Cally"

My Acoustic Yamaha C-310 was named "Jennifer"

and my very very first guitar was named "Julianne"

I don't think you'll get a lot of "no" answers. I tried to anser No on the first, second is then n/a, so is the third though I could answer "no" aswell.

never ther less, you'd need a "told you I don't name guitars" option for the others questions. rolleyes.gif

Think mine are called 'this one', 'that one' and 'the other one'. Just to add a bit of chaos though the name is contextual rather then fixed for a specific guitar.

Cheers,
Tony

Excellent character to be named after.


Fender Squier - Ramrod
Ibanez RG4EX - Strife, for some reason it reminds me of the FF7 Character

I'm not good enough at guitar to name mine yet! biggrin.gif

I'm wondering: Do you guys/gals think that guitarists name their instruments because the guitar invokes feelings that the player felt towards a certain someone?

Oh no my friend, you have not lost it! Jennifer Love Hewitt is gorgeous! I'm sure she would be honored to haver your guitar named after her!
