    Quick Post Script to the first post...

    It's a MIM (I think '07). I replaced the stock neck pup with a GFS Fat Pat and the pickguard is a Warmoth job I ordered for Christmas. The hot bridge pup balances out nicely with the Fat Pat (I got "lucky" on that one, me thinks).

    Welcome all of you right minded lefties!

    Give me some time to put a cool strap or fancy pickguard on it.

    I'm in. This is my tele and was my esquire. The esquire had a makeover and is now a blackguard with a new body but I don't have pics yet. Both are parts guitars. The tele has a great neck done by Rich and Chris Rice.

    I eat and write left handed. But I started out playing violin, and there's no playing violin left handed. So I play guitar right handed too. But I cheer you on, my left-handed brethren! :)

    As a lefty that plays righty I applaud your patience in a world of cool right handed guitars. Hunt those lefties down or build your own!

    I just ordered a reverse headstock neck purely in support of you guys (or maybe it was a coincidence) :rolleyes:

    It does my heart good to see all of these beautiful lefty Teles! Here's a body I bought today from USA Custom Guitars (web special $109!!!) that is going to be my lefty Esquire. I already have a pickup out of a '51 Nocaster that I'm going to put in it. It's gonna be a Blackguard!

    I would have grabbed that body if I had seen it! I check their site usually once a week. Timing is everything. That's gonna look sweet!
