How many of you have named your guitar(s)?

I have been obsessed the last couple of weeks about naming my Les Paul...I just wanted something more personal to call it and it's feeling more and more like part of me - so I have chosen to call it LARK.

I brought my Paul into a place called "Lark Street Music" (which is in the same town I live in - it used to be in Albany NY) for set-up by a great luthier, and the name Lark appealed to me - both for this place and for the song bird. This name just feels right. :)

I know there are famous guitar names out there - Blackie and Brownie for Clapton, Tiger and Wolf for Garcia and others. How many of you have named your guitar(s) and what names did you choose?

My 2002 Fender American Series Strat is named "Red." It's chrome red with a rosewood fingerbord, all stock. Not a very original name by far :)

These are some great names!

I didn't get my Les Paul back today from Lark Street music (their repair man didn't come in today!) so the name Lark is in danger now -- it will only stick if they do a good job of set-up and today was not a good omen...

When I first got my Framus 12 string...kinda of a rair one...which I found out was rairly used except by a few select stars like Jimmy Page, John Lennon and a few others...I named it Lennon. I did this because one of the first songs I sat and played on it was You've Got to Hide Your Love Away by The Beatles, performed and song by John Lennon...which later I found out had been played on a Framus 12 string, same model as mine...I think. Either way when I found out, I was like oooooh, that is why I sounded in perfect harmony when jamming along with the record! As far as my other guitars....not really! Might name a guitar after a girl though if I can gind a girl worthy enough...sigh...where are all the interesting girls at these days? Haha, peace.

You've Got to Hide Your Love Away is one of my favorite songs and Lennon is #1 for me if I had to choose just one songwriter/performer to listen to (probably pretty closely tied with Bob Dylan).

That sounds like a great guitar and it's got a great name!

I just got Lark back from the luthier, and he did a GREAT job! The action is nice and low now - but without buzzing and great tone and intonation and bends are easy and I played for quite a while with no fatigue at all. :)

And I even went down from a 1.14 to a .96 Dunlop (gator) pick because Lark is so much easier to play now.

Yeah!

Jim, The only guitar I have ever named is an early 90's Fender that I still play. I just call her "my wench". She's not pretty, a little banged up but wouldn't give 'er up for nothing.
Thats the guitar in the space picture on my wholenote page. -Scott
