    Ruby and Candy then my other two I never play have no names.
     
  6. I very jokingly nicknamed my first 12string bass 'Excalibur'.... the name stuck,
    but it really ISN'T serious, though.

    My 2nd 12er has no name.

    I bought a new Jazz bass on holiday with my wife's relatives in Boston USA
    and my wife named the bass after her cousin's wife AJ.

    My 2 basses that I designed are named after my god daughter and my wife's god daughter. The names are engraved on the neck plates.

    LOL, that's the funniest thing I've read in a long time. Although, shouldn't Hotpants be between Charybdis and Scylla???

    I call my Ibanez "the Ibanez" or "the 6-string" and I call my Rickenbacker "the Rickenbacker" and my fretless homebrewed job "the fretless".

    *shrug*... I've never been one to name inanimate objects... hell I have enough trouble calling my cat by her actual name. ;)

    Naming an instrument is so lame. but to each his own.

    My 2003 Lakland Skyline 55-01 is "Boomer".

    I just sold an Ibanez bean-bass (small body). I called that one "Baby Boomer".

    The rest of them are still waiting for me to be inspired.
