I coulda sworn I posted this earlier . . . but I didn't. Gotta love those senior moments.

Anyway - here's the current harem in order of seniority:

  • Snow - Washburn 12 string acoustic. I shopped all day in a raging blizzard to find her.

  • Mahogany - Martin D-15. She smells so good, I'll open the case just to perfume the room.

  • Juanita - '94 Strat. She's a Candy Apple Red Mexican cutie. With a knife.

  • Burgundy - '05 Tele in Midnight Wine. My honky-tonk angel.

  • Crystal - G&L ASAT in Natural finish. She's addictive. It's hard to quit once you start playing her.

  • Nicotine - G&L Invader XL in Tobacco sunburst. Also addictive.

  • Cherry - Les Paul Faded Double Cut. She's got more attitude than a room full of bikers. She makes me play blues.

  • Miss Kitty - Epiphone Wildkat. Rockabilly Roadhouse Queen. Makes me want to break out the leather jacket and the Wayfarers.
  • Playing guitar and never playing for others is like studying medicine and never working in a clinic.

    I just tried calling my white Tele "Blondie" my black Squier Tele "Blackie" and my acoustic "Spot" (it has SPT on the headstock......) and none of them answered......

    And I'd never, ever think of a guitar as female.....I've had a lot of bad experiences with females, but none with guitars.....

    :D :D :D

    My newest lap steel (a custom, but not made for me, I bought it secondhand) is "The Yellow Peril."

    So playing it you could be "Walking The Line" maybe!

    nice -- have you considered adding a few diagonal black stripes to enhance the effect?

    It'd look like a blast pad. :D

    Doubt I'll mess with it, actually.

    It plays and sounds great, which is my principal concern.

    this thread prompted me to do some further naming (at last, lol)

    The strat and tele are called Rosencrantz and Guildenstern respectively, after Shakespeare and the Stoppard play (Are Dead). The strat gets Rosencrantz because its got the rosewood neck, and because he's my fave character in the Stoppard play. As much as I love my tele, my strat's always gonna be my baby. :lol:

    Just wondering if anyone else names their guitars?

    My samick strat style copy is called Sammy (obvisouly!) And my fender squier acoustic is affectionately known as Sandra...ladies names of course!

    Anybody else? Or am i just a weirdo with too much time and not enough friends? :? :)
