    I bought a g2420T about a week ago. I am not one to normally name an inanimatr object but I feel like this guitar deserves a name. So I am looking for a name for my cherry red G2420 Streamliner.

    Cherie, short for Cherie Bomb?

    Pix or she doesn't exist, btw. :D

    I would play it for a few days or weeks and see what name you just start referring to it as. Men always seem to name/call things as her and I on the other hand have always referred to them as him. Motorcycle, cars and guitars have always had male names. Maybe it's a gender thing. LOL

    Good idea! After getting acquainted the inanimate object may reveal the name by which he/she/it prefers to be called.

    I have an Ibanez 335 clone in”Transparent Cherry Red” - Name is Red, appropriately enough.
    My Smoke Green 5420 is called Smokey (Duh!!)
    My Double Jet is Joan (of course!)
    My Epi Joe Pass Emperor is dubbed Edgar, named after my wife’s uncle who was a horse trader extraordinaire. I horse traded several pieces of gear to finance this one.

    Patience, Grasshopper. An appropriate name will come to you…

    You've got me thinking that my as-yet-unnamed guitars should be as follows.
    G2627T: 'Georgia' (Green)

    Ibanez Gio: 'Candy' (... Apple Green) or 'Jolly' (it's the color of a Jolly Rancher)

    T-style partscaster: Fuzzy (for its charcoal ''dog hair" finish)

    That leaves the uke, with which I haven't really bonded. Maybe 'Angela', since she's a D'Angelico? Or 'Angelica' after the sister in the "Rugrats" cartoon.
