Default Name the model contest!!!!!!!

I've been working on a new model. So far I've been calling it an "Economy Model" but I just don't like that name. I've stated several times on my website that I'm no good a model names. I'm looking for my fellow AGF'ers to name my "Economy Model". Please post your name suggestions in this thread, instead of PM'ing me or putting them somewhere else. Next Sunday (October 10 2010) I'll pick a name. The person who comes up with the name I choose will get 3 sets of D'addario strings, either EJ16's or EJ17's including shipping anywhere in the US. I buy my strings in bulk so they'll come in a zip lock bag. Here's a couple pictures of the guitar you're naming.



More information on this guitar, and model can be found here, and also in this thread

A few people suggested names too early in the other thread. I'm going to paste their suggestions here. If I've missed any let me know.

As for naming it. Something simple.

Call it the Model 1E.

E for entry level - not economy.

Hmm, a simple 00? And your higher-end model is called the 00-D?

It needs a "W" prefix to mean "working man's guitar."

And an "E" suffix to mean "economy."

The W00-DE (pronounced "woody").

How about "The Audition Model" or just Audition?

As in these definitions:

2 .a reading or other simplified rendering of a theatrical work, performed before a potential backer, producer, etc.
3 .the act, sense, or power of hearing.
4 .something that is heard.
