I name all my guitars...My first acoustic is named Allie(after a friend of mine when I started playing) my other guitars are JIF(like the peanut butter), Lucifer and Pyro. I have a blue guitar yet to be named. Theres something a little more personal when naming ur guitar. It's like u become attached to it and u love it like a real person or something. I don't know...maybe I'm just weird. :D

I name all my guitars "Guitar". That way there's no confusion.

[font=trebuchet ms]I named my first SBG1000 Brand X because it's the axe all the others get compared to. When I got a second, identical SBG1000, I called it The Stocker because I hadn't made any modifications to it. Then I stuffed in a DiMarzio Tone Zone and a PAF Pro, and modded the switches, so now I call it [font=copperplate gothic bold]The Stalker[/font], just because.

I don't have names for the others, except for the model designation from the builder. I refer to my Odyssey Custom V as the V, for instance.[/font]

i think naming your guitar is important.

my acoustic is named "Cole Lindsey" cuz i bring my guitar to my swim meets and...well Cole and Lindsey wanted me to name my guitar after them.

my SG is named "Carmalita" cuz thats just a cool name and it goes with it well.

nah, I just call my Martin, well my Martin of course and the same goes for my Jackson. I've thought about naming them but never have.
I am a constant evolving music machine. Oh Man, I just forgot what I was playing. Oh well, on to the next song. :rolleyes:
