    ive always had a hard time naming my basses. when you find a bass that you really really dig hardcore, its hard to find a cool name.

    This has definitely been covered before, but...

    My old P-Bass is named Roxanne and my Peavey is named Claire. Whenever I buy a new bass, I'll name her Sophia.
  7. My pearl blue stingray is named Monique <3

    Back when I had my seven string, everyone kept calling it "The Beast", so the name kinda stuck.

    I call my Stingray "Les" because one day I played the DMV lick in front of one of my guitarists and he said, "Oh yeah. You think you're so cool?!?" He then preceded to do the whole "throw your guitar over your sholder and have it return to playing position" hardcore move. When it got about halfway around, the entire bottom strap peg came out and the guitar dove head-first into the floor. That's the second hardest myself and the rest of the band have ever laughed in our entire lives.

    My Kubicki is named "Andrea" after a special someone.

    I named my Squier P Charlotte. Funny thing is, I didn't feel like I was naming it, rather, that I learned it's name.

    I haven't learned the name of my Godin yet.
