yes it is very silly!! but it is very fun! I started naming my basses when a vocalist from a band I used to be in did not know basses by brand but by color, so the bass I was using in the band was a ruby red ibanez sr 305 and He just called it ruby so it stuck, my new bass which is my new fender dimension v!! my favorite is a cherryburst so I named her amber, it was better than cherry. So anyone else name their basses??
