• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

I Named My Les Pauls Today

I decided to name my Les Pauls today. Not sure why but, if forced to guess, I got tired of referring to them as "The Goldtop and The Standard" and I've really bonded with these to instruments after being Fender-thusiast for decades.

So let it be decreed that, from this day forward, my 2011 Gold Top LPD with P-90s shall be called Hal.
And the, 2007 Ebony Standard shall be called Bonnie.

Do any of you name your guitars?

Yeah, my 2007 '57 Les Paul Custom Black Beauty is the Shady Lady in memory of my ex-wife's felony conviction for embezzlement, and the 1973 Black Beauty I sold to marry that... person.

Wow, we've got creative folks here. No surprise being musicians 'eh.
Doc and Rock, if I were to follow your lead I'd name my next guitar Bitchy Mc'Bitchface.

Some of my guitars have been named - others haven't.
I've found that you really can't force it; it's got to be a reason or it has to suggest itself.
I've tried forcing it and it just doesn't stick.
