I call my Studio, my Studio... My Telecaster, my Tele' and my Epiphone Standard, my Epi'.... Never quite felt comfortable calling them a persons name, by that's just me...

The name of my Les Paul is "Standard", Gibson even engraved it on the truss rod cover for me (no charge)!

of all my guitars i've named very few of them, any time I take my old LP to play I say "c'mon old timer" so I guess it's name is old timer.....although "crusty" may be more accurate.

another i've named is my Washburn acoustic......we've been through many battles together & it even has a few drops of my blood inside it (along with some whiskey)
this is "old soldier"

I call my Sheraton II "Sherri" but it's not an "earned" name, so does' that even count?
not to me..........

I like "Clementine", just bc of the pickup selector switch. Consider it!


OK, Clementine has stuck. Thanks, I think. But seriously, I like it. This guitar might get some interesting exposure soon. You'll hear about it if it happens, then you can say you named it.

I gathered as much but it is hard to tell on the net sometimes. You can disrespect my playing as much as you like but not the girl. [wink]

Wonderful, I'm proud to hear it! Now you have to help me think of a name for mine (a couple posts above).

What's your Les Paul's name? Include a pic to really show off the character!



Whole Lotta 'Rosie'! 2011 LP Studio in faded or worn (?) cherry.
