Actually, yes I do! My D18 is called "My D18", my D35 is called "My D35", my F50R is called "My F50" (I drop the R), etc. So, I'll say (affectionately), I'm going to play "My D18." It makes me warm all over.

Personally I could not call my guitar by a persons name with a straight face, but that's just me.
Then why respond multiple times in this thread?

And I never named names, but if the shoe fits...

I haven't named any inanimate objects since. Don't really know why, I think it's fun.
I think its fun too, mr. beaumont, but there are those among us who actually have enough time in their day to have a problem with it. LOL

Understandable I guess.

BTW, you shouldn’t use the truss rod to adjust the action.

Default guitar names

I named some of them. " Black Betty" Martin OMCXAE

"Goldie" Ovation Legend Plus Elm


" Pearl" Ovation Celebrity

"Pappy" 1975 D 35

That's all of the names so far. My wife can identify them if I say Black Betty,instead of Martin OMCXAE.

One of the enjoyable things about adding a new instrument to the family is naming it. My latest purchase I named "Roadkill" as it's a bit of a bashed up scrap-o-caster.

Some of the names I give are fun, like "Racklesnatch" and others have meaning like "Fridah".

No. I don’t feel the need to name my guitars. Absolutely not!
