yep but its useless to me I'm right handed
thats why I'm wondering if its worth fixing up to put up on the wall or something

I'd fix 'er up. If it's not useable, you can always mount it on the wall or sell it - lefty guitars are hard to come by, I'm sure someone would be grateful.

thats what I was thinking of doing but I can't find any info on the guitar so my next question is gonna be what do you think I should put in the guitar?

if I do rebuild it I'm gonna sand it back and repaint it and get the pick ups and everything working in it even if I can't use it just so I have a project to do

The hardware, especially pickups, is preference.
In terms of tremolo, make sure it fits inside the cavity - re-routing it for a bigger one is a lot of work for a wall ornament.

You may want to replace the nut if you're going to do anything useful with it, like setting it up Hendrix style.

Doesn't look too bad at all. I wouldn't paint it, just a good cleaning, then a setup. Perhaps new wiring. I bought a lefty recently, and its kinda fun to try to play left, it reminds me of years ago when I started.

The tuners look like junk but the rest might be ok. Its a guitar, why wouldn't you fix it up.

On another note, how the hell do you randomly find a guitar just laying around your house? How come that crap never happens to me?

some of the wiring has come out so it would need new wiring

the tuners are stuffed they don't even turn anymore
and the switch is stuck in that position
the knobs are hard to turn so they need replacing
the jack I'm hoping is ok
I'd say it needs new pick ups I think it was left outside at some stage coz they have a bit of rust on them

I think it was given to my brother when he was younger and he put it in the back of the wardrobe and we forgot about it then found it again while cleaning up
