    I have 2 soon to be 3. My wife is pretty amazing, but I fell in love with her all over again when she actually could HEAR the difference between a Road Worn 50's Strat and a MIM Standard lol.

    My Standard is named "Nyro" After Laura Nyro a PHENOMENAL singer who doesn't get the recognition she deserves.

    My Road Worn is named Buddy because of the obvious lol.

    Once my Daphne Blue Classic Series come, I'm probably gonna name it Janine from Ghostbusters or Evelyn after my daughter who's slated to make her appearance in the next 40 days or so! :thumb:

    Hey there's absolutely nothing wrong with having only one! I wish I had the discipline and self control to have one and just OWN that one. But I'll make a case for any strat I lay my eyes on haha. That one there is an absolute beauty!

    4 Strats, including Parts-o-casters and Squires. One Mexican, which is as close as I get to USA Start. After a proper setup, they all play as they should, and everyone should learn how to correctly set up their axe! Joe Walsh has an excellent video on setup on YouTube, it was done for Gibson, but it applies to any guitar.

    Hello,
    4-Stratocasters reside with me...One Strat-Plus from 1989, & 3-Classic Series 1970's guitars. None have any names, though they all appeal in the same way.

    Ciao,

    Oh man...strats. I have close to 20. And if I built up all the strats I could from all the parts I have, that would easily add another 10. That doesn't include all of the other Fenders or brands of guitars I own. The special ones all have names. There's a few I haven't bonded with enough to find a fitting name for them yet.

    If you have a little girl on the way, you should definitely honor her in some way with your Daphne Blue model. Hopefully you'll just naturally bond with that guitar. If it has any association with your daughter on the way...you'll NEVER get rid of it. One of my favorite strats is one named Rainbow. When my youngest daughter was about 9 yrs. old, I asked her if she wanted to paint me a guitar, as she was quite the artist by then. She was so thrilled. So, I primered a strat body, did the same with the headstock, gave her a bunch of acrylic paints and some brushes and told her to paint whatever she wanted. It didn't matter and that whatever she painted could never be wrong. It came out SO cool. I clearcoated it, put it back together and played it at the first gig I could. Amazing how our little girls can have such influence on us Dads.;)

    I have three Strats currently, my '82 CSL goes by the name of 'Geddes' (axe) and has for 30 years, you'll have to look that one up I think :)
    My ST54 is called many names, but is usually referred to as 'The Beast'.
    If my CP50s is called anything, it's usually 'The HollyCaster'.

    The Tele is known as 'The Weather Forecaster', which began as a joke about 15 years ago and stuck.

    My mate has an Affinity Strat called 'Plank'.

    All of them at times have been called ##### ##### ## #### #### ###! Or similar. :p

    Got two, an '89 US Standard and a recent Classic '60's model.

    I wouldn't give them names though, just seems a bit weird.
