I'm just mad cause theres not that many left-handed guitars in the world... at all............... and even if there is like the les paul they only come in one color.... the only leftys that are the same thing either way are the strats and teles.. this has just go me mad.....

first, strat's and tele's aren't the same way lefty as righty...unless I'm missunderstanding you. I say get an SG, or a V, or something like that if you're thinking of taking a righty and flipping it around...also I'm not lefty and wouldn't know, but it seems as though good lefty guitars are readily availible...

this is also a good option, all lefties I know play righty for some reason...

Yea it can be a pain sometimes to find a lefty guitar. I just got another epi LP this week I stripped it down and am repainting it. Problem solved and I can fix all the crappy work they like to do at epi.

I agree that us lefties don't have the selection that our right handed friends do, however there are some nice lefty guitars out there - we just have to look a little harder. plus we don't suffer near as many brain aneurysms from having to decide between so many guitars

here is my modest collection of lefties

Ive got a left handed esp ltd H-300 and its a beautiful guitar. They are out there if you look hard enough. Mine was sitting right up in the top back corner of the store and it looked like it hadnt been touched for ages. Ive also been told by many stores that most guitars can be ordered as lefty if your willing to pay a bit more.

I've got a flipped lefty fender strat, I didn't buy it to be like Jimi, I got it cause it was $100 on ebay. (It's a real MIM standard strat, not a knockoff or squier)

I think fender makes a Jimi replica strat that's right handed, the headstock is reversed, but I think the electronics and trem are still at the bottom, I really didn't see the point in it....I guess it could have just been a strat with a reversed headstock...maybe I saw it and thought "Hendrix" and I'm fabricating the part about it being a replica...I think I might be losing my mind....

i agree, but i dont think the left handed situation is too bad.
a lot of guitars aren't made lefty that i would like, for example, mustaine style v guitars.
but there are many guitars that are made lefty,
a few esp designs, lps, sgs, strats, teles, super strats, warlocks etc etc.

the main problem is not being able to try them out in the shop because they dont stock most models.
and the colours, it is beyond me why they can't make lefty guitars in the same colours as rightys
#19
Yeah that's my problem, lack of things to try.

I just bought a RG1570 without trying it...fingers crossed!
