    I know some people do, and some think it's silly...me, I do indeed name my guitars. My Velas, for example, are Daisy (the black one) and Simmons (the blue one). My Peavey Patriot bass is Betsy. Acoustic is Angie. Also, guitars to me tend to be female - seems that way to most people that name them, with Casper being the potential exception...

    I’ve had a cat for 6 years that I still refer to as “the cat”, so no, I’m not the best at naming things lol.

    (dogs are the best though, so my girl is Penny Lane)

    No, but if I did I would have to name them male.
    I just can’t see anything with a chooch like that sticking out of it to be anything like a female.

    Not really. I have around 25 guitars, but only two have earned a name over the years.

    Too early for learning, but we try...

    The "Wabbit" went to a new hutch in Oregon. New owner says it was set up perfectly and is now his #1.

    I’ve only had one with a name since 1967. The name started out as a joke for my NGD on this forum, but seems to have stuck. It’s just a fun thing, I’m not all that serious about it.

    My McCarty Singlecut is The Hammer Of The Gods.

    I don't but other people have named my Custom 24 "Larry" because of the color.

    We used to tell my daughter stories about a turtle called Tippy when she was a toddler. She loved Tippy.

    When I got my Custom 24 I saw that it had a tortoise shell finish so I told her (she's 15 now) that It's too bad that Tippy doesn't have a shell anymore since they used it to make my guitar. She was fake horrified and that was all I needed. That guitar is Tippy now.

    My Vela was named by our drummer, “Mercedes” because it’s almost exactly the same colour as his car

    I figured someone would get the reference :). Mrs Aahzz and I are on our 3rd binge through the series, just finishing Season 5 again...

    That is kind of my method too. Like my pets, I guess I unimaginatively named my guitars: Strat, Tele, Classical, 714CE, Brent Mason, Paul's Guitar... I guess I need two of one model to find out if I can get more creative, but I am pretty sure it would just shift to Black Strat, Blue Strat and so forth.
