    What? Didn't you see it? He posted it for everyone to see. If you go study it - lines, color, shape - I think you'll agree.

    It's easy to love Charvel with a real Floyd Rose. Fantastic guitars, and the pink is BRIGHT!

    I have only ever named one Guitar & that was the Alien, a custom Singlecut.

    The Flame Maple Top had an Alien's face in the Flame...............so it stuck when we picked the Wood out a stash of Maple many, many years ago.

    Apart from that I don't name Guitars or any other inanimate objects.

    But each to their own I suppose.

    My wife named the last two. "That's it!" and finally after one more purchase, the Gibson golden pearl is "WTF?"

    have never named any guitars or anything else for that matter,
    names are for the living, naming lifeless objects with personalized names is sort of considered unlucky in some cultures or at best a pretty weird thing to do

    I just call 'em by what they are. like black tele or 414

    I have a guitar that I bought in memory of my pops, who passed last year.
    I named it "pops", lol.
    its something that he would've totally dug, and I think of him every time I look at it or play it.
    Some may find that weird or silly, but as has been said, each to their own.

    I must admit, I've never named my toilet or known of anyone that has, but there's still time. The best way to prepare to name a guitar or any inanimate object is to start by naming one or more of your body parts as practice. It's like an ice breaker and it's a great way to gain some valuable experience in coming up with effective names. Me, I named my special purpose "Peter O'Toole" and then went on from there.
