If you were a guitar-maker would you use this name? What would it say about you if you owned one?

Unfortunate guitar name

I think in german cuntz would maybe be playing with the word kunst which just means art but that's a wild guess. I give this thread three posts before someone makes a strumming/fingering/g-string comment.

Cooperman asked:

It ain't the size, it's what you do with it.

It seems the guy who makes them is called Andreas Cuntz. I guess it's no more embarrassing that going to Phu Ket for your holidays.

Methinks you should only be embarrassed if you play it badly..

Sidestepping the vulgar puns (for the moment, anyway), I've always thought that "Takamine" was an unfortunate choice for a guitar name. It's pronounced "tock-a-MEE-nee" but it looks like a stereotypical Italian person is saying, "Take-a mine".

Well, it sounds quite good in Japanese. "Takamine", I mean. There are no silent vowels in Japanese (when it is rendered into English letters).

Seriously, I've never played one but they do look and sound like REALLY nice guitars. Doubt if I'll ever be able to afford one though - they're around the £5-6000 mark!!!!!! Just requested them as a friend on Myspace and Andreas sent me a very nice message - I feel a bit of a **** for mocking his name now.

Yes, it's embarrassing all around.

My father was given an embarrassing name, "Adolph", back in 1905. During World War 2 he certainly endured some petty harassment but he endured. But maybe that's why he and mother give us such boring names as "Charlie" and "Bobbie."

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

You could always take one back to Germany, and play it on top of Mount Wank which is close to the Austrian boundary!

Pronounced german the name would sound like Coonntz (does it come with a coonskin- err...cap? ;0)

Embarrassing is living in a street named after a famous philosopher from Königsberg and giving your address to an english-speaking person...

P.S.1.: Maybe he could advertize, that people who are not playing a c. are usually called wankers...

P.S.2.: Sorry that was bad taste & language. But it could be worse: Just imagine that the guy made banjos...

Ginger Minge and Dick Trickle are more embarrassing as given names go.
