Only and always 'The Ric'. Not very imaginitive, and a real bugger if I ever get another one.

My old 1991 Jetglo 4003S is named "Cilla" after Cilla Black, due not only to the colour of the instrument but also the Beatles, Cavern Club and Epstein connection :-)

For the benefit of non-Anglophiles

"Who was the second biggest selling music star to come out of Liverpool after the Beatles? It wasn't Gerry & the Pacemakers or Billy J. Kramer & the Dakotas, nor was it the Searchers. It was Cilla Black, a one-time coat-check girl from the Cavern Club who was still learning to sing with confidence, forget developing a technique, just about the time that the Beatles were cutting their first EMI record.

Cilla Black holds a unique position in the history of pop music, and the British invasion. As Brian Epstein's discovery and protégé, she was the first and only important female performer to emerge from Liverpool in the heyday of the British beat boom. In conjunction with Epstein's management and George Martin's production skills, she became a formidable ballad singer, her hits lasting longer than any Epstein clients other than the Beatles. And she became one of the most beloved pop-rock performers in England during the late '60s and '70s, and one of the country's most popular television stars."

One of the previous owners of my bass felt compelled to create some sort of a logo on it that kind of looks like a hawk/eagle. It doesn't look bad, although it is very...interesting. It looks like they carved out the head then filled it in with some filler that is a little bit darker. This sounds like a rant, but I actually like the thing, so I call it "The Hawk Bass" or "The Hawk Ric"

My new 360/12JG has been called "Sally" on a dear friend's suggestion.
