Have you named your bass? If so what is your basses name?
Cielo - italian for sky, or heaven. (Spector)
Fiore - italian for flower. (ESP)
no...i kind of think it's a dumb practice
My first bass was a black Squier P-Bass and I named it Tiffany after a really hot black girl I had a thing for.
I haven't had one with a name since, except for the custom fretless Hambone is building me, called the Jazzwick, though that's more of a one-off model name than a pet name or whatever.
My first bass was named POS - because it was!
My second bass (97 Fender P-Bass American Special Edition) was called Louise, after a girl I had a crush on (her middle name actually) when I bought it. I drove two and a half hours to pick up this bass, which was also the town she lived in. As soon as I picked it up, I drove to this girls flat to show her. She couldnt see why I was "so excited about a guitar?".
There was the tell tale sign there! Took me three more months to work it out, though.
My MM Stingray 5 doesnt have a name - its referred to by my bandmates as "THE five string".
My yamaha is named pete, after Pete trewavas.
I have yet to come up eizh a name for my sx
Over the years, my instruments have been given meaningful and emotive monikers such as "the fretless", "the blue one", "the Rickenbacker", "that black one", "the six string", and so on.
am i feel deja vu here? or am i just psycic. I feel like someone is gonna come on later and talk about what stu hamm names his basses? call me crazy!
my bass is called slappy...
Ah, another from the Utility school of onomastics.
I just call them by their brand name, "pedulla" "fender" "esp"
My first bass is Jerry, and my 5 string is Karl. I still don't have a name for my Brawley. Maybe Tony the Brawley?
Well...Heinz is called Heinz, and although at some point I must have decided to call him that, it seems like he named himself.
The only other one that has a name is Ed, the green Bongo fiver. And Ed is (a) based on Ltd Ed Finish, and (b) is much easier to say than "the Envy Green Bongo Double Humbucker Fiver".
Bessie and Bruno.
I have been calling my latest Sadowsky http://www.talkbass.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=16226 " Sweet Pea"
i call my first bass "hood" because it is red and makes me think of little red riding hood
My Samick 6-string is named Lina. I had originally named her Devilina because she's curvy, sexy, has a transparent red finish, and every time I pick her up she won't let me put her down. I shortened her name from Devilina to Lina and I like it better; the name's now more "class" than "crass" and subtle like her. See, most people are initially "ehhh" about my Samick bass, but once they actually play it, they're like "Whoa! That's a niiiice bass! And really fun to play!"
My junky Ibanez 5-string was named Sonja. Not sure why.
My first bass, an Ibanez 4-string, was named Charlotte. Not sure why.
Kirstey Alley, because she's got a big bottom.
i usually do, but in the last 14 months, i havn't thought of a name that really works for my TRB
First thought was stuby.
