    They're just named after me and then however many appropriate juniors follow. It's wild.

    Yes, for some of them, but the DIY ones only...

    I can see your house from here.
    I call them all Super.
    "Where's that Super Tele?", I'll say.
    Or, "How's the Super Les Paul today?"
    It's great for their self-esteem.

    Each to their own, but I cringe with embarrassment when ppl anoint their new guitar with some silly name. Especially if it is a female name.

    Mine are just.... The red one, the blonde one, the hot rail one, the sparkly one, etc. Just descriptive.

    I name mine, but not necessarily a name you would give a person.

    only one my 96 american black strat her name is "Blood and Guts Special" because when I got her there were only 3 strings on her , and she was slathered in a ton of Bio diversity, I supect , beer , and other unidentifiable liquids of an organic nature, as well as several unidentifiable bodily fluids , requieing a complete strip down of all patrs and pieces , acomplete bath of all parts and resultant setting up , I went full "Fendergyrl", on that project ( in reference to the absolute oustanding work she does on her guitars, much respect)

    No.

    My guitars are free to name themselves, don't get me wrong, and to talk amongst each other.

    But I won't hang a name on them myself.
    Who needs that pressure?

    :(

    Yes, the yellow one, the white one, the out of tune one, the other out of tune one. When they all become the 'out of tune one' its time for a new one.
