    I only have one guitar that I refer to by name....Brian 4723D8DB-FF74-48B9-A08D-8678DC80B1B1.jpeg

    that is the real Brian. I had a BMG Red Special, and a Burns....I called those Fake Brians. I had to get rid of them because there just wasn’t any comparing them to the real deal.

    I've never had so many guitars that Strat, Flying V or Les Paul wouldn't cover it.

    No, I don‘t. Mostly cause I think it is tacky and contrived. The model all ready has a name. I don‘t mean to come off as overly negative, just my opinion :)

    Geddes. It got the name about 1983 and it's stuck ever since.

    My MIM Lone Star is known as 'The Strat', despite the fact that I have 5 Strats, if that counts. The others are just known by the brand and/or colour (the Legend, the red Squier etc); or the style, if I only have one (the acoustic, the Tele).

    I would name one if there was story attached to it.

    Yes, all my gigging guitars have names. I look at the guitar and see what pops up, sometimes a guy's name and sometimes a girl's name.

    My car is called Henry, I look after him and he looks after me.
