    I'm building a T style partscaster that is decidedly very copper in color. It's a solid cedar body with Watco Medium Walnut Danish oil and black shoe polish for the finish. It's my avatar pic. I'm open to your suggestions, but here are the two that I like right now:

    Top Dollar (the awesome villain in The Crow, played by Michael Wincott)
    Small Change (a really really great Tom Waits song and also an inside joke because this build is expensive)

    The theme is loosely money. This makes sense to me since the guitar is copper colored and pennies are copper. What I don't want is anything with the word "caster" in it. I'm not trying to tie this build to Fender in any way. It's really its own thing.

    Thanks!

    Small Change goes well with the penny-like colour.

    Have to agree with @Bruxist on Small Change, and not just because Tom Waits is the Lock Screen on my phone. Top Dollar sounds boastful to anyone who doesn’t know the reference (I wouldn’t have), and Small Change just has a better ring to it. So to speak. (Hey, I coined a joke!)

    Thanks guys. Small Change is my favorite of the two as well. Now if I could find a way to get a spent .38 casing or two on the guitar in a non-tacky way, that would be really cool.

    Or pasties and a g string. (Guess you’ve got the g string...on the guitar.)

    Get a .38 casing, glue dowel stock in it, cut a slit to fit, put it on there.

    BTW, I like Small Change.
    If it happens to leave and come back a few times, you could rename her "Bad Penny."

    I've never named a guitar, so whichever feels right to you! :)
