It's probably named after Bruce Leroy, your alter ego.

Some of the most famous guitars have been named after women. BB King's "Lucille" and Roy Buchanan's "Nancy" come to mind.

Only named one of my guitars ... a PRS with a McCarty sunburst, I call "Booker". More of paying homage to my late Chocolate Lab than the bourbon.

The sunburst on that thing is beautiful. I play a Epiphone Les Paul Special, which is the $199 imitation of that thing, but I've had it since I was 15 and it sounds about as good as I can play.

The older Epiphones were build on the same work benches as the Gibson line.  Kalamazoo MI... to sad it's all just a registered trademark now days...

They are still making them at 225 Parsons Street in Kalamazoo under the name "Heritage Guitar".

 

I always thought of Burk as a Flying V kind of man, but I guess if he wants a Les Paul so he can share his feelings ...
