• 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!

Well, I screwed up and got a 3rd Les Paul. This one's an R8 and he's "Earl" (The Duke of Earl). My Fender's are starting to complain as they're feeling a little left out at the moment.

P.S. I really have to learn out to resize these pics and still keep the good reso.

Do any of you name your guitars?
Not usually, however, I have a Cadillac Green Gretsch 5420 called 'Charlotte' (affectionately) after an 'ex', because it's curved in all the right places, full of air and (a bit) green.
A blackguard Tele called 'Marilyn'... 'cos 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes'.
My 60th Annie R9 is called 'Whitney', because 'she's' beautiful and has the voice of an angel (after Ms Houston).
My R7 is called 'Shirley', because of 'Goldfinger' - Dame Shirley Bassey sings the song, and the actress who played the girl who got painted is called Shirley Eaton.
