  6. didn't notice the one in the bass forum because I thought moderators would say it doesn't have to do with the actual bass
     
  7. I have now a 95 warwick fortress masterman 5 i have had for 7 years now. she is called "sweet" and in the past my first bass was a '64 Tokai P bass copy red with white pickguard she was called "rosie" I had a charcoal gray Yamaha TRB6 called "Big Willie" short for Wilamehna. And a natural yahama BBN5 called "Jenna" cause she sucked but did it well.

    I have a Black Yamaha 4-String - Ol' Red is it's name.
     
  10. One is called the Fender, the other is called the Stingray. Mostly it is used when my drummer says, "Hey, bring the Fender to practice." I don't know why they would need other names. Not like they are alive. But then again, how cool would that be if they were alive. And at night they had little bass parties with the married couple on the wedding cake in Homer's freezer.

  15. My first fender squire bass was named Alouwishus

    and my Vadim bass is called El Duende (the gremlin in spanish)
     
  16. all my basses came with names...Modulus,Rickenbacker,Fender...they flat out refuse to be called by any other name....they told me so...I must now return to my basket weaving project,the orderlys are getting angry :eek: :confused: :D :(
     
  17. One night, the name Charlotte came to me, so that's her name, but I don't really use it.
     
  18. my eda905 is named alexa.
     
  19. when my my friends ask if they can play my bass, i say "well sure, you can play 'the coolest bass in the world that is a actually a major peice'" so i guess thats its name, either that or, for short, 'my BASS!' (say bass in a really deep voice, really fast, kinda like when ya slap then mute real quick)
