Guitar Names - interesting subject, isn't it?
I was just looking at a nice high-end lefty model guitar on the Ibanez Japan site (RG 680CL, better than then JEM 555LWH - lefty Lo-Pro!, and a steal at under $600 ... btw thanks Todd for showing me this) and I realized that if I got my parents to get it, or pay half, on it, that I would have my MusicMan and two Ibanez's (albeit one is a low-end model). This got me thinking about naming them (rather than referring to them by brand, like I do and can now).
After reading a lot of posts here, I saw that most of you guys didn't really name them. "UV77MC" or "7VWH" or otherwise naming them by the model number seems commonly sufficient. To those who own more than one guitar, especially those who own many, and now that I think about it, even those who own one (hey, that's about everyone here @ Jemsite, haha) - isn't it more fun to give them more personal names?
It's challenging. Does anyone here have names for their guitars? How did you come up with them? And to those who don't, why not? I just thought that this topic was a really interesting thing to discuss.
By the way, I thought it was really interesting when I read in an article somewhere that men tend to give feminine names to things they value (e.g., cars, boats, guitars). The first guitar that comes to my mind is B.B. King's "Lucille"... (I'm not a B.B. fan, nor a blues fan/bluesman but it's a memorable name and in my opinion, a beautiful guitar)
