Hi all, I’ve lurked in the shadows for years but never got around to joining until now. Great site with tons of usefu information.
i’ve been messing around with guitars and gear since 1996 when I got my first electric, an Antoria Telstar tele clone and I still have it but it’s not stock anymore.
ive bought and sold maybe 80+ guitars as I’m a lefty and we don’t get much in store to check out, although things are better then a few years ago.
ive now got 2 USA Fender Strats, 1989 and 2018, 2 Gibson Les Paul Standards, 50’s and a Slash, ESP Ltd EC1001ctm, Cort G260 and a Vintage AFD100. I love amps and pedals too as they are easier to hide.
Anyway best wishes to all and thanks for all the great posts over the years.

Welcome......
Someone's eventually gonna comment about pictures (needing them) so I'll go ahead and mention that.
Plus, I can't let you drop the statement,"I love amps and pedals too as they are easier to hide." and then just walk away.......WHO are you "hiding" them from?.....a spouse?......a thief?......a thieving spouse? ;););)

Lol, a spouse who is completely baffled by my constant need to buy another guitar when they all "look the same " . After nearly 30 years you'd think she would have got it by now .

Welcome!
There are more than 80 left-handed guitars in existence at one time? 😳🤔🤷🏼‍♂️ I worked in the biz and only saw more than 20 all huddled together (for warmth, I’m guessing) at a store dedicated to lefties. It was unsettling like a hall of mirrors.

That’s probably why I switched to pedals. Smaller and she doesn’t notice.

Here are some of the current lineup and some I've sold on, and most of those I wish I still had..especially the Green Les Paul Classic 😢

Lurkers are always Welcome!

Coming out of shadows you will now be able to afford us with your experiences and knowledge (I'm sure the lefties will appreciate your input on technical and playing issues related to left hand guitars).
