    They all assume a personality and get named...
    Orange Jazz 5 dlx is Clementine
    Elrick Classic 5 is Rufus
    Black Fender Dimension 5 is Cleatus
    Fretless white Steinberger Synapse is The Borg
    and my Dingwall SJ5 (still many months away from birth) in supersonic blue will be Raoul.......I think......
  10. Two blue Godin SD-4s named Jasmine and Nadia. I tend to sell basses that don't suggest names to me (and I haven't named my GTBD-7 yet...).

    My Fender CIJ '62 Jazz Fretless is named Wilma.

    It arrived from Japan the day after Hurricane Wilma hit us!
    (I had to wait a week for power so I could play it through a amp!)

    Vindy, what model is woody?

    My Fender (QMT) is called Chocolate because it kind of looks like one.

    My Yamaha BB404 is called Fred. Because it's fretless, apparently. Hey, I didn't name it.

    My Kay double bass is called Popeye because it's huge and there was a ban on spinach so it was all over the news when I picked it up.

    I also named my friend Fil's violin. It's a Zeta Boyd Tinsley black model, and it's called Manolo.
  16. My Black P-Special is "Barney Rumble", My homebuild t-bird is "Chloe", and my 8 string is "twang". My Epi Rivoli is "Betty".
  17. My upright is called The Big Mouth Bass, I don't have any for my electric though.
