I've been writing music for the last eight or nine months on my own under a specific project/band name. Is it unusual or strange to use a band name for a project that only has one member and will most likely never be released?

Not at all. There are tons of musicans that do it. Hell, i do it myself.
Fusion and jazz musician, a fan of most music.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

How would we know? If the music was never released then nobody would know except the person who wrote the material.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

I have a solo project that I've named. I do intend to record and release several songs (once I get my new desktop working) on bandcamp. I don't see an issue with what you're doing.

I have to disagree with that comment about guitar hero, because I just played it last week and although it is not realistic it does help with speed and dexterity. I just got "Rocksmith" today and see how that goes.

FYI, it's his signature and has nothing to do with this thread.

And also, I agree with it. Guitar Hero will help you at guitar playing as much as Call of Duty will help you at war. Yes, it can improve your sense of rhythm and hand synch if you are poor at them. But really, Guitar Hero is so different from real guitar playing. It's just a game. I'm not saying it's a bad game (I sometimes enjoy playing it) but it just shouldn't be compared to real guitar playing. Being able to play guitar well doesn't mean you can play Guitar Hero well. For example watch the video of Dave Mustaine playing GH - he sucks at it.

True but even if you are a master at guitar, playing guitar hero is a whole other animal to learn. The two don't really go hand in hand and each are seperate things to learn but once you get them down they can kind of help you learn the other. For example I was playing expert welcome to the jungle in gh3 and I did so much better than my friend playing the same song for one reason. Because I knew how to play the song on a real guitar I knew how many times it would hit each note in any repetitive part, my friend didn't and just ended up guessing the rhythm and got it wrong. Nevertheless this isn't part of the original post like you said so this is my last say on the subject.
