i named one of mine "ash" which is short for the irish name, aisling, meaning dream..... old gf oops....

But i customised the whole guitar so it was somethin special to me, and i have her anitials in a heart on the scratchplate hidden in there but dont tell anyone...... :lol:

but i figured id keep it, the guitar, since it may be made from the wood ash, meh who cares,

i dont have names for the rest of mine, id only name them if it meant somethin, i wudnt just name them for the sake of it

I'm pretty sure that BB King had a famous guitar with a name....

And for the record, I gave up naming guitars. I usually just refer to them as This One or That One, depending on what I'm holding and where I'm pointing, though at one point I think there was a Beth, Tracey, M&M, The Banana... I've forgotten the rest of them.

Since I don't have multiples of the same models of guitars, I don't need to name them to tell them apart.


But if I ever get a UVMC reissue I will name it "Holy Grail"

My Ibanez J Custom is called "1 of 7", since only 7 were ever made! I chose this because it nods toward Steve's love of the number 7 and towards Star Trek's "7 of 9"-a character I have a bit of an affection for :wink:

How about calling your Jem "1 of 57.7million"?
:lol:

this is the other thing about guitars - some are masculine and some are feminine. I mean, my les paul isnt named, but i always refer to it as 'him', whereas my jackson is called lucretia and im pretty sure that my JEM will be feminine and have a girls name. What u reckon?
