Hey i recently bought a left handed standard strat. when i got home and plugged it in i realised that the volume and the tone knobs turned the wrong way!

I took it back to the guitar shop and the guys said that all left handed strats are made this way.
Does anyone know the reason why they do this. Or does anyone know how i could change it around??

Thanks

lol u can change it by switching lug 1 with lug 3 on every pot. quite easy if you're handy with a soldering iron.

i thought about it, and i think that would be kinda awkward if i was a lefty. and i would probably agree with you. cuz it's like my knobs on my righty strat turning the wrong way. so unnatural...
