    Dicecaster and Pinstripe. Not very inventive names but nice playing guitars.

    Never named guitars I built, but one of my amps is called a Princeclone Reverse... It's a Princeton copy ( well sort of) and I accidentally built it back to front (don't ask....)

    I assembled an Esquire around a Musikraft neck someone had finished, complete with Esquire decal, but never assembled. I built a '56-ish spec Esquire around it using Fender parts and a Fralin Blues Special bridge pickup.

    Fubar Twangmaster and Custom Buckarooster

    I gave my first partscaster one of the names mentioned by the OP - Twangmaster. I came up with the 'brand name' of Fubar because, if a certain script is used, it can bring to mind a well known musical instrument corporation, while, at the same time, making a statement about my general skill levels in both lutherie and musical performance.

    My second partscaster is double bound (like Custom tele) and has a Don Mare Hayride (aka Bakersfield) PU in the bridge and a Klein Firebird in the neck position. I wanted to capture all three of those attributes in the name. I came up with Custom Buckarooster (Buck/Buckaroo for Bakersfield and rooster for the bird part...get it?). That one doesn't fulfill the 'caster/master' criteria specified by the OP but I like it so much that I am compelled to throw it out there anyway.

    Here are some photos of both of them:

    As I play mainly blues, country, and countryblues I named my partscaster the "Bluesboy Countryman"

    I am not that far into the assembly of the (cheap) kit I bought.
    But the name was in my head, even before I bought it. (And I ordered the decals just yesterday)

    It will be the Fandango "Toledocaster". Like this:

    PS: Midwestcaster, Rustbeltcaster, Eriecaster came to mind, but have been dropped...
