    You’ll have to reverse the order of strings, and strum up.

    I think pu magnets are independent from the earths magnetic field....

    otherwise everything metal you own would become magnetic over time....;)

    Treble will be bass. Bass will be treble. It's no big deal, but will have to use your tone knob the opposite way.

    It has to happen, because Santa's home is melting away quickly, so he is moving to The South Pole.
