Stupid sounding question but hear me out...


I've noticed that people still hold left-handed people in some mistrust. People seem to think being lefty is in some way 'weird'.

It's virtually impossible to get good LH basses that actually play well on that note.


Why?

Always with the lefty discrimination!

What about the ambidextrous folk?
Blindfolds aside I'd probably still close my eyes

And try to feel a trembling fetal life inside
that shotgun barrel that's about to make me bleed

Like an ulcer in the stomach of the beast

I've never noticed any sort of mistrust of lefties. I've certainly never seen any kind of discrimination, personally.

you're a minority market.

that's why there's a limited choice. It's more expensive to produce less and you sell less aswell.

that's why companies don't bother.

It's economics not some form of discrimination.

Because its silly to make the same amount of guitars for ten people as you do a hundred.
...In my opinion.
#26
the reason you can't get good lefty guitars is because there are so few left-handed people that the manufacturers can't make tons of them and make a profit. especially guitars that are not hand made.

im actually left handed but i play guitar right handed. i think it helps having your dominant hand on the fret board.
#28
Because the left wing has always face opposition from those pesky objectivist fools. Or something.

Because Hendrix was a leftie and every person who is righthanded and discriminates lefties is jealous not being such a music-genius.

I thought it would be a political question.

I had my response all planned out


Well, there are many, MANY more right-handed people than left-handed people, and it's usually easier to make something work one way or the other than to be ambidextrous.

Plus the designs aren't always correct, some are just reversed without changing the shape and size adequately.

Add to that hundreds of years of superstitions and you can see why people are weird like that.

I'm left handed but I learnt to play guitar right handed. I find it easier anyway, it's my dominant hand doing all the fingerwork

I don't understand why there even are left handed guitars. You use both hands in guitar. Right handed players have to work on their left hand technique sometimes, so left handed players would just need to work on their right hand technique.

around 90% of the population is right handed.

even if there's an abnormally high rate of left handed musicians to left handed non musicians, it's still a tiny market.

It's about the psychology of it. If I think of playing in a certain way, and then play in the opposite way, then it screws me up.

Apparently left handers have more artistic capabilities or something. Look here.
