    LOL, I gotta agree, it kinda irks me, as well. That being said, I've done it myself, but only because it's quicker and easier to type 'PUP' ! I'll take any shortcut available ! :D

    True! But does she mix well with ice, simple syrup, bitters, cherry and an orange twist?

  13. All my Basses have names. I have an upright named J-Lo because her butt is so big it is hard to get the bag on her. My other upright is Bess, after Bessie Smith. She has a dark and bluesy character to her sound as did the amazing Ms. Smith. One of my electrics is called, “The Mood Bass” because, similar to the old mood rings, her paint changes color in the light, from deep emerald green w/gold metal flakes, to purple with silver metal flakes. Last but not least my big green electric is Named Nessie The Loch Ness Monster. Not only is the color apropos, but for Southpark Fans Who need a chuckle, she , “....cost me.tree fiddy.”

    I don't name my basses. I do name the strains of cannabis I create.

    One day riding in the car, my granddaughter made up a tune called “Honeyshiner”. That week I received this Sadowsky bass. It’s now affectionately called “Honeyshiner”.

    Heavily modified '76 Fender Jazz is Josey, because Josey wails. '80's Spector NS2 is Ronnie, in homage to Ronnie Specter. Schector Stiletto was named by former owner, Bertha, it fits. Sire M7 fretless is Maggie, after my mom. Washburn AB20 acoustic is Michelle, cause sh's pretty, like a few Michelles I have known. 7 string Wolf has not expressed herself to me enough to name.
