I don't know if this has been asked before, but why do people always give their guitars girl names? I always think of my guitar in a more masculine way, you know, a buddy that helps get you laid or something.

They're not.

But, why does a girl have to be a lover. Maybe your guitar is a dyke, and a buddy who helps you get laid.

You need help to get laid?

On a more serious note - because they're generally named by guys, and guys think everything is somehow related sexually to a woman. Yes, that's why your guitar tells you that it has a headache and you should take the night off.

Only one of my guitars has a gender-specific name. I tend to assume my guitars are genderless.

It's been discussed before. No one wants a guy sitting on their lap for 4 hours a day.

Because fingering A minor and snapping a G string doesn't sound right if it's a dude?

So fingering A minor sounds great if you ARE a dude?

Hello. Why don't you have a seat over there?

Okay, so I'll ask you this.

A guy has a big guitar (maybe a Dean DBDT). Does he name the thing Dan, Darrel and let his friends call him Douchebag? No... A dude that names his guitar a dude name doesn't work.

Same with why a guy would never name his car a dude's name. I mean, I'd name my El Camino, Cindi (WITH THE I, MIND YOU!) or something similar. But not Carl.

I probably won't name my guitar. Unless I can find out the most common name of a fat chick.

Or a dancer... the V half kinda looks like legs, and the Explorer half kinda looks like someone with their arm up in the air and the other side looks like a hand on a hip...

^^ wtf does guitar look like? half flying V and half explorer? i need pics lol

my guitars are dexter, cabbage, lars, adopted crack *****, and tape. i see nothing female about them.
#18
Cause a guitar's got all the right curves ;D

Nah, seriously, it goes waaay back before guitars. Ships for example are always referred to as her or she. Ironically they were the only females trusted to go on a voyage and not jinx things XD

If an object becomes close to someone, it's almost always referred to as being female.

I guess it depends on the guitar.. A guitar with curves and effeminate color is obviously going to have a girlier name than a pointy BC Rich with flames painted on it.

They're not ALWAYS named after girls, Is it Armstrong's from Green Day that has the blue strat called "Blue"? And then Brian May's is called Big Red or Red One, something like that.

Guitar names are not always feminine, sometimes they are only phrases like Morello's "Arm The Homeless", "Soulpower" and so on.

But maybe feminine names are more popular for guitars, because guys don't like fingering something called George...

Kelly seems a more obvious name for it.

I hope you wipe your guitar down when you're done, I thought dried sweat was gross on a guitar.

My guitar's named KK. Of course, it's after two girls named Kerry and Kayla, but I like to lie and say it's a tribute to KK Downing.
