Is that not a left handed set up bridge there?
or am I just getting mixed up?
Right handed has a slant of / doesn't it, I'm not around my guitars so I can't check cause I'm to lazy to climb the stairs.

Where as that has a \.

I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

To me it just looks like a hella crappy setup. I've never seen a guitar that needed to be intonated that radically, so my guess is that the slant is totally random.

Actually I'm right, the itonation is set up there for left handed :S

Way to ignore everything I just said and reiterate your own opinion, you huge ignoramus... Show me the guitar that needs a slant that extreme to intonate well (that doesn't have fanned frets) and I'll take you seriously, but until then, use a little common sense instead of bulldozering on with your "I'm right about every half-assed assumption I make".
See, even the guy who has the guitar in his hands thinks it's just worked itself into that wonky position. See, the bridge is completely loose (as in: not bolted down or fastened to the sound board at all) on hollowbodies like this...

definately too early for japan and china. Most likely made in USA.
After 1st world war, the allies made germany pay them money to rebuild their cities. Thus ****ing up the german economy, pissing them off and leading to the second world war. (including japan). This time round, the allies had learnt their lesson, and decided to help germany/japands economies.
So japan manufacturing = post 1945.

And china has only recently (in the past 10 years or so) became a place for stuff to be mass produced...
