SPB: What’s the story behind your name?
Jack: There isn't much backstory on this one. I think I stole the idea of the name "toy guitar" from Spike Slawson or Kent Jamieson (NOFX tour manager). I can't remember which of those two had it first. It was either something like Spike was playing in a kids band or Kent and I were gonna start a kids band and so that name was sorta floating around. It was soooo long ago. But yeah, it's got a very not serious ring to it, which I really like. There were some other names kicked around briefly, but I think everyone kinda liked toyGuitar. The whole one word, upper/lower case thing started shortly after to make it a little more unique, I guess--and it stuck. So, there you have it, the linguistic history of "toyGuitar".
