Hmmmm ..... I may have. My Oscar Schmidt Delta King is Elvis. It is "The King" it is wide and it is heavy. :lol: Thank you very much. For having 20 guitars, you'ld think more would have a name wouldn't you? My LP GoldTop copy could be Goldie? I don't call it that though. I guess I'm just no fun. :?

I suggest naming any pretty ones "Give To Scrybe." No idea why, though. Honest. :roll:

Alternaively, try simply calling one "Scrybaid"

I've gotten more into naming recently. I do think it helps if you have multiples of one type of guitar (e.g. several starts or strat-types, or several LPs, be they Epi or Gibbo, or a mix). Or maybe I just think of that as a handy excuse to purchase more.........

No, I still have less guitars than you, so the latter assumption must be false. :wink:

Scrybe ..... have you seen my Potty Caster yet? Is it pretty? :lol:

I bet you mean pretty like this ...

Ahhhh ..... but I've seen pics of your guitars and you have some lookers yourself already. :wink:

OK, you want names ... the "PottyCaster" I will call it Mr. Hanky ... UmmmKay

My son's bass guitars in the pic ...... well ... I will name them for him. The Beatle Bass ..... that will be Paul. The Les Paul, well, Les ..... so in the pic Les & Paul.

OK OK ..... the Hamer ... well as the story goes, I bought it right after seeing cheap Trick play at the Franklin County Fair. I will call that one Mr. Nielsen. Is that enough names?

No need to apologize. It was buried in the Ops and Polls section.

Epiphone LP is "Epi" (thinking of changing to "Midnight", since it's all black and I am wanting another Epiphone)
1st Squire '51 I bought is "Ole '51"
2nd Squire '51 I bought is "New '51" (will get a new name after mods)
Fender acoustic is "Woodrow"

The only guitar I've named in Christine, my Gretsch, haven't come up with anything that fits any of the others, but I ALWAYS name my cars, especially once they've been with me a while. The current gal is "Bessie" a 1970 Kingswood ute. 308 for anyone interested :wink:

My Hammond organ is named Christine. Long story that I've posted on here in the past.

The Spear just got named. Shorty. I was looking at it in its stand and noticed how much shorter it is compared to most of my oter axes.

My Gear for music is now named Patchwork, i've just finished its new body, i redesigned the headstock because i was bored, and then inscribed its name on it. Advantages of being a carpenters son.

I have a confession to make... I name my guitars! :shock: I have named two of them My thinline Tele is named "Jessica".
And I had a starcaster acoustic and I named it "Martina" cause I thought it looked like a martin.
