I was watching this guitar cover that I quite liked. Watching more of her videos, I found out that she's a left handed guitarist, but has a right handed guitar. So what she does is flip the guitar over, and just changes the strings differently. Heres a look:

EDIT: She no longer does this, btw. In her newer videos, she has a brand new, LEFT handed guitar haha. Oh, wells.

Id imagine its because left handed guitars have less variety and cost alot more than right handed guitars.



Yeah but I was just wondering because I know of a lot of left handed guitarists who just play righthanded guitars. Never seen anyone actually flip one before.

Different lefties had different approaches.

Some changed the strings around (Hendrix)
Some kept the strings the way they were and played upside down (Albert King)
Some just learnt to play right-handed (Herman Li, Gary Moore, Mark Knopfler, MAB)
Some got a left-handed guitar (Kurt Cobain, and strangely, Tony Iommi)

To be honest I like the upside down look. If I can ever afford to do so, I may buy a left handed strat and play it upside down right handed. I just think the bigger horn at the bottom looks cool.

It also gives it a unique tone if you flip a right handed guitar. Gives your higher strings a bassish sound and gives the lower strings some treble
#19
One of my best friends and band mate is a lefty and he plays the guitar like every normal righty does and he has no problems. He's really good actually. I don't think it's necessary to have a backwards guitar just because you're a lefty and my friend proves my point... LOL

Generally, girls doing anything that's not stereotypical of them, they'll have a flock of guys going "omg u so good and hot".

I think it's ugly. Unless the headstock was symmetrical, I wouldn't play a right-handed guitar upside-down.
O! music: Click (Youtube)

I'm a leftie, but I learnt to play right-handed. It just seemed more convenient

Mosrite?


You called? Yes, the Mosrite Ventures models are based on upside down strats but they have many of their own features and the body style is much more pleasing than an upside down strat.

Don't forget Mosrite had many other kinds of guitars though.

Oh and back on topic, I think it looks good to flip over a guitar and play it upside down. Doesn't matter if it is a righty or lefty guitar, It matters on the guitar though. Restring it, Play it upside down... Either way is cool.
Always tin your strings.

The Doves bassist plays the bass upside down. Literally just turns a normal one upside down, leaves the strings as they are. That's just how he learnt.

Yeah i have a friend who's a left handed guitarist and he says that a left handed guitar is super expensive while a right handed guitar that looks exactly the same is way less money

i've seen a guitarist play that way too. with only the strings in reverse order. it looked really funny but it more or less sounded the same. but all of his descending licks looked like ascending licks and vice versa. kind of a mind ****.

I agree it's ****ed up, when I listen to somebody playing I LISTEN TO THEM, I hate when people look at the sex and the looks of them and praises them falsely. There was a girl playing wrong chords and wrong tempo but because she was a girl that was awesome. I could seriously stab the people in the face that gives her credit for sucking.
