My classical guitar's called Juanita (after the saint of the day in which I bought it), and my electric guitars are called Jorgina (after George Harrison) and Merc (because of a song that was playing in the shop when I bought it). My bass is called Ludwig (because of Ringo's drums, and because it's a German name for a German bass).
Press: What do you think you've contributed to the musical field?
Ringo: Records.

So... I've decided to re-name the guitar I borrowed.... to Winston Paul Harrison the 4th (because by adding the 4th I get a reference to Ringo as well!)

Smile Who doesnt name their guitars??

Yeah, I'm in a band at my church and every instrument in our band is named. All the guitars, my 3 basses (4-string - Tristan; 5-string - Herman; 6-string - Princeton), drums, keys, and even our two singers named their mics... Well thats about it, if you want to contact me, I have a 4 string LTD with ESP pickups, a 5 string Mexican Fender jazz bass, and a 6 string yamaha. If you want any information on those feel free to contact me at that email address or at

I have about 30 guitars, so they dont all have names!

A few old timers do, though...

I have a 1958reissue Les Paul, which is named 'Beano'... my 1970 les Paul Custom is called 'Lucifer'.

I have a 1969 Gibson J200 named 'Lula' and a 1989 Rickenbacker Susanna Hoffs model which answers to "Sex-on-legs"!

I also have two hand painted replicas of George's "Rocky" Stratocaster and Eric Clapton's "The Fool" SG, so no prizes for guessing what they are called...

Although not official, I often shorten my references to my Yamaha acoustic to just Yami and I tend to introduce my Lotus mandolin as "My little friend".

Hmm, maybe I should name mine! I didn't think about naming them because... normally I don't name inantimate objects, unless they're in the shape of antimate objects. Look its weird, don't ask. Anyway, I don't know if I should give them girl names or boy names! *ponders*

I always give my guitars names. Omar, Chuck, Debbie, Ricky, etc...
My electric Uke is Kitty because of its leopard pattern.
I get by with a little help from my friends.

Cool re: does your guitar have a name?

i've got two guitars, one electric and one acoustic, but it's only the avoustic one who have a name...its called 'Edward' and he looks like this

And then there's the elecrtic one, its an Epiphone Les Paul(and YES the name actually got me feeling more attracted to it)Standard sunburst ... i kinda regret the colour tho', i wish it was black....:( ANYWAY, it still needs a name!! suggestions??
George: our next film is gonna be in colours!
John: green.

My classical acoustic is named "Craig?" (I was VERY into Lennon's writing at the time that I got it)

And my little red uke is "Pokey" (as in "Gumby and...") I was little when I got it (hence it being named such a thing).

Haven't named my fluke yet.

And when I get an electric (one of these days)... dunno what I'll call it... hmm...
Peace, Love, and Beatles!

You have no idea how happy I am to have found this thread! I get teased for naming things in my life and now I see that I am not alone!

My guitar (which is an acustic Alverz that I love with all my heart) is named "Lenny." It is short for "Lennon" because John Lennon inspired me when I was 12 years old to learn to play the rhythm guitar. I dont' know when I stopped calling him Lennon and started in on Lenny, but Lenny it is!

Great story Starshyne. I think each musical instrument definitely has it's own personality! So I don't think there's anything wrong with naming them!

My Epiphone Casino is named John or Johnny, guess why :D
My other guitars don't have names, except for ''Strat'' and ''Tele'' :P

My Washburn is named Michelle. My Peavey is named garbage dump because it looks like crap. :P
Ringo: Hey have you been messing around with me in my kip, you know, with the fishing rod?
John: I wouldn't touch you with a plastic one.
