Its a cheesy answer but hey, the thread starter asked so here it is; I named my Ibanez RG1570 Sarah, for several reasons. Firstly, the finish is something I can't take my eyes off, much like my then girlfriend. Secondly, friends commented on the amount of time I spent with the guitar being in the same region as the amount of time I spent with Sarah when she came to visit. And thirdly, a housemate commented that I could make the guitar sing just like her with the same relative er, shall we say gesture?

My other guitars are named after drinks, I don't quite remember why I chose to do that, but its semi permenant now as with all guitars after I pick a name for them, I take a sheet of letraset and 'brand' the name on the back of the neck, near the join.

Hey All,

Breed - Jem 7PBK signed by Steve Vai and The Breed. I play it on special occasions. I get all warm and fuzzy just thinking about it. Jane - American Standard Strat.

Name

#130 Post by Playloud78 » Thu Jun 28, 2007 8:11 pm

07 Jem 7vwh=MIA ( named after Uma Thurman.s character in Pulp Fiction)
91 RG 550DY (Burnt)= C.K. (after 2004 US Gymnast Courtney Kupets SSSSSSOOOOOOOOOO Hot)
03 AFS 75t (Trans Blue)= Chet ( If u have to ask your clueless)
04 Aef30e (Trans Purple)= Gabrielle or Gab for short (Look in the Bible)
Naming a guitar is very personal to me I play it for a while and see what comes to mind. i name them because they are "friends" to me. When I'm down they are there for me, when I'm mad they take a beating instead of a human. They are truly an outlet for my emotions, and once I settle for a name they don't change so pick carefully.

ok i think i got some now

Brian Moore i21 - Velvet Wave

because playing it is like touching velvet and the music flows through like a wave when you hold it.

Epiphone Les Paul Custom (alpine white) - Avalanche Blue

because its white and when you play it, the blues just avalanches from it!

Ibanez RG350Dx - Xbox 350

because to play it is like playing an Xbox, so much fun, and you can do some crazy things with it, and theres an Xbox sticker on the back.
