for instance my bass has a full name "Vlad Andrusha Romanoff" and my geetarest calls his guitar "Babua". What to you call your insturment?

I have no clue why he named his geetar "Babua" but I?ve always been fascinated by the Russian language. That and Vlad Dracul. Romanoff was the last Russian family to hold the crown, and Andrusha is the Russian version of Andrew my middle name.

Idea:
In order to make this thread somewhat productive, say why you named it that or what you named it after... if its just completely random, that would be cool too..

Mines the Little Devil...

Its bright red RG series Ibanez so it gives off this speed demon feel and well its smaller than the Big Devil (My SG).

Partially, these names came from AC/DC, but other than Big and Little Devil, I just call them baby.

Squier Defretted P bass: El Squeiro De La Muerte (The Squier of the Death, because it is a pain to play)

Fender Jazz: Harmonster (Harmonic Monster, perfect harmonics everywhere on the neck)

Ibanez SR506: Sixy McGee. It's 6 strings, and it looks like a McGee.
haha

animal rose.

i guess because it for some obscure reason it reminds me of animal from the muppets, yet it seems really romantic (not in the lubby dubby sense, but in the sortof poetic, melodramatic sense ;-)) so i gave it rose as a surname.

for its dials it has 3d skulls, its sortof sunburst 3 colours, chipped here and there. if it was personified, i imagine it as animal from the muppets, but with a frock coat :-)
i need to get a better signature.

When do you actually call your bass these names? When you can't find it? When you're mum asks what you're doing upstairs? "Playing with Carvey, mum". I'm intrigued.

After BB King called his guitar Lucille, any other name just pales in comparison

#26
Umm well my Peavy Millenium bass is Big Ol' Blue and my fretless Yamaha RBX300 is nameless right now. Haven't thought of a name that would do it justice. Any suggestions?

My first bass was an Epiphone Thunderbird IV. It's a wood finish so I called it Woody.

Then I got the Ibanez BTB405 5 string and it reminded me of Toy Story. Woody suddenly gets upstaged...by BUZZ. So it was called Buzz.

My Ibanez is called Edna cuz the guitarists were giving their guitars sexy names and my ibanez wasn't sexy. My Italia is called Mirabel Mondial
Mirabel is a Latin name meaning "wonderful" or "beautiful" and sounds italic.
Mondial because it's an Italia Mondial

I named my Bonjangles. I think I was ripped or something. For some reason that name just reminded me off something bass-related. Oh and a tap dancing black dude from about 70 years ago.
