I play normal guitars upsidedown, means I dont have 2 have a lefty on hand all the time. Problem is with electric guitars, the body is not designed for use the wrong way up. The volume, selector and other stuff gets in the way, the strap button is on the wrong side (I had another one put on my current guitar) I also cant access the higher frets because the cut away is on the wrong side.

Basicly I need a left handed guitar thats been restrung for a right hander.
Is this possible without a lot of work on the bridge and such?
And would I get a decent sound?

So you want to do a Hendrix?

You can do it, you just need to change the nut and stuff and you're away. The sound you get also isn't really different, just the same, I think.

And, just to get this clear, you're right handed? And want a left handed guitar? Cause the first sentence is a tad misleading then.

A Reverse Hendrix ;D

And yeah like he said all you would need to do is get the nut replaced and Even a left handed guitar will have the knobs up by your shoulder im afraid =\...
Your gunna have to get used to tat if you play in the reversed or regular hendrix style.

No I think what he means is he's left handed but plays right handed guitars left handed but doesn't restring them, so he's looking for left handed guitar set up for left handers...

Doesn't that kinda defeat the object of playing the right handed guitars upside down for convenience?

Bit harsh I think! He comes back for the last 10 minutes against Roma, after being out all season, and you want him crippled again? You harsh wanker!

Oh right! That's really confusing, I'll tell you that.
