    Okay, I named by bass, but the question is, how many of you guys have named yours? My baby's name is Krista. I named the one I was about to buy Lucille, before the local music store offered to violate my bank account.

    I named my bass Ibanez
    GSR 200. I guess the other owner named it that.

    I hope to change the name of it to Sterling one day.

    I had a Gibson Les Paul guitar at one point. The guy who traded it to me asked only that I call her Felicity. So I did.

    :edit: heh, guitarists. =0)

    UnsungZeros The only winning move is not to play.

    My bass is named Roxanne. I can't help but to think that Roxanne is a name that can only belong to an attractive girl.

    My first bass is Molly, after my girlfriend at the time, also my first girlfriend. She later named her first guitar Patrick after me (my middle name)

    My second bass was Beth, sold her. After a girl I was close to.

    Then there's Louise, my acoustic guitar named after my best female friend at the time.

    Alissa is pending for my date to Homecoming tomorrow night.

    Then there's Ernie, my Stingray (creative name huh?) and Lucky my seven string Ibanez.
     
  14. My bass is called Amanda, my guitar is called Annabel, my computer is called Amélie.

    I name everything.
     
  15. I call mine Puppy. I like to take him on walks and play fetch. We have the best times together!:D

    I have two girls in my stable - one of them (an ergodyne - EDB605) is an ultra versatile slim / fast necked, dual humbucker, active five string - it's a pleasure to play all styles and is my finger style weapon of choice. This bass makes me want to play with a soft right hand. She is "The Beauty". Her little sister is 4 string - an SX P bass knock off. It's basically a low end / off brand P bass - it doesn't look bad, but being that it's just an SX - the fit and finish are of lesser quality than other basses. This wide spaced, roundwound strung, old school fender style bass has one purpose in life - and that is to be slapped by me. She is "The Beast".

    my EDA900 is called Elspeth (my g/f at the time) but i also have a friend called Ellie who is nicknamed "dizzy" so i commonly refer to it as Dizzy. i have just bought a fretless, that is made by the company Ninja, so it is likely to have a japanese girly name. all basses are girls. just butch girls.
     
  19. i named my Fender P Mitch, and my lbanez is Maxmillion...no significance behind either of them.
