i just call my 2 guitars galveston and retard.
the galveston is my les paul...and thats also its brand.
retard is my flying-v copy,the neck is messed since the people at my guitar shop cant repair right so its way out of tone from frets 10 and up...it tried readjusting the truss rod(made it better than it was but still messed up) and re adjusting my bridge(same as truss rod),so i call it retard.

I probably won't really name my Les Paul anything. If I had to, I'd name it the Knee, cuz it rocks in the nastiest fashion possible, just like Captain Falcon. So logically, my guitar has to be an "it", cuz being the Knee it's too much man to be a "she", and it would be kind of gay if it was a "he".

I named it Edgey, ala Edgeworth from Phoenix Wright.
I did it because whenever I replace the strings, I don't cut the excess off and instead I make them stand straight up to a point. Or out to the sides sometimes.

I named my first guitar, my Les Paul, Juliette. I named my foreign affairs guitar Natalia. (I bought a cheap acoustic I can carry around and not worry about, though I still seem to feel bad whenever anyone bumps it on something.) I named my 12 string Sylvia. My newest guitar, my Martin, I named Christine.

Christine is the only name I have given that means something to me.

Err... I have an inofficial, undisclosed nickname for my guitar, which is about to become less undisclosed...

My guitar is a black Epiphone Les Paul Special. Yes, probably the cheapest Epiphone LP guitar you can get. Anyway, there is an Epiphone guitar with these three gold-colored humbuckers, it's called the Black Beauty because, yeah, the Black Beauty is a beauty. So anyway, since my guitar looked a little like this beauty except it wasn't as beautiful, and it was cheap, I decided to nickname my guitar something cheap, and so I went with Black Booty.

...and that's all, folks!

I love my guitar though. I dislike the strings but I'm gonna replace those soon. The LP + the 15W Marshall Amp I have make a killer team, IMO. Not sure why, but Marshalls are kind of my favorite guitar amps.

Wow..

Creativly different..i guess. Alot of those names (no offenese, no names) look like they were just pulled out of thin air.

Im a real romantic, spiritual, symbolist kind of guy. So a name for anything of mine has to really be a "name". Which can have several definitions:

-An identity for notification, attention, etc... (pretty much a label..)

or..

-A title of importance which pertains to that object/persons own manner of life

Thats just me of course..

And while although my guitar is simply a Fender SquireStrat, it is my first, and I am attatched to it. As well as my borrowed acoustic, a Fender as well.

My green SquireStrat is Peacemaker
My uncles acoustic is Bilbo

They both create the music that defy who i am.

I'm still trying to name my guitar. I've always considered my guitars, cars, video game consoles, computers (I name a lot of things) girls, but I'm having a hard time naming this one. It's natural starburst Fender American Stratocaster, and I play mostly metal and classic rock, with occasional alt and punk, depending on my mood. Anyone got something original? I've had guitars in the past named Eva, Joan, Samantha, Josephine, Kariana, Katie, and (because the day I bought it came on the same day I bought the game) Yuffie. (and yes, I did copy most of this from my post on Is your guitar a male or a female?)

My first classic guitar is called "Winter" because I'm a great fan of Johnny Winter and Edgar Winter.
My acoustic bass guitar is called "Super Nachos". Why ? Because, with a friend, we scream "Super Nachos !" and together, we make an improvisation psychedelic and to finish the solo, we play the E string very loud to make something weird.

Yes...yes you should...though I forewarn you...only the true chocolate connoisseur will appreciate the fine blend of cheese and chocolate. (in other words, you may or may not like it, depending on how much you love chocolate. ^^)
