    I use a combination of good old fashioned pig calling and yodeling. Unfortunately, it never works.:(
  3. "Heeeeerrreeeeee bassy bassy bassy, heeeeeerrreeeeee bassy!"
  4. "Yo B! Where's my money dog?"

    ...Works every time.

    By it's brand name. The closest I have to any sort of "name" is calling my Epiphone EB-0 my/the Epi.
  9. 'Zackly. I like to be accurate in referring to equipment. I come from a radio/TV background, and I often refer to things by brand and model so that my meaning is clear. A EV-635A can only be one thing. However, when it comes to multiple Fender products, I'll refer to the Jazz or the Precision - I only have one of each.

    Should I end up with more than one of a model of bass, it becomes "The silver P" or "The fancy Ibanez." Funds be willing, someday I'll have to say "The black Roscoe."
  11. Generally standup basses are much easier to call than bass guitars - you know, "my wooden wife", "the doghouse", "the gutbucket", etc. I had an Ampeg Baby Bass we used to call the "cathouse bass."

    My late grandmother used to refer to my Kay M-1 as "the monstrosity" when I lived at her house. It was a small house and the bass took up a lot of space in my room. Gram passed in 1994 and the bass was sold long before that. Miss 'em both lots.

    I call mine my PIECE OF TRASH.

    I know, it's a workhorse, does what I need it to do, stays in tune, never gives me problems on stage. But boy I'd like a little more luxury.

    Each has their own name so it depends on whether I want to fondle Angelica, Bethany, Jessica, Melissa, Jennifer, Asia, etc.
