    Here is a place to show all your left handed guitars. I'll start the ball rolling with a couple of mine. ImageUploadedByTDPRI1446061519.851635.jpg ImageUploadedByTDPRI1446061543.854013.jpg

    One of my 2016 resolutions is gonna be to get a lefty guitar and see what the fuss is all about.

    I'm gonna be PISSED if I find out (35 years late) that it's a lot easier than being a lefty playing righty guitars.... :mad:

    :lol:

    if you do convert, you will find your approach will be totally different and you wont sound like what you did right handed, being ambidextrous would be really cool you could switch technique and be a different player entirely

    my neighbourhood friend who I sat with and learned my first CCR chords on his guitar as teens....

    lost his forearm in a work accident with a grain auger when he was 19.... became a lefty... as it were...

    he had to re learn to play lefty on a flipped righty with those made up chord shapes........ or bandage a slide on a dowel to his stump and play righty....:cool:

    my first lefty builds were for him.. to get the controls out from under his arm pit..... and for his son who is lefty as well..... both killer guitar players....

    the kid.. the bored one sitting in the pic... can play righty/lefty... can play flipped rightys /flipped leftys.. strung opposite... plays regular shaped chords and those cacky reverse chords leftys use.... sometimes swapping forms in the same song....

    I've never seen ANYONE play a guitar so many ways with both hands, lefty or righty/strung either way...... insane....like watching the impossible....:confused:

    very cool, nice Work!!

    I have a friend who's step son does the lefty righty thing and sound like two different players depending on his orientation.
    Talented kids are disgusting! but great to listen to.

    When I jam with my mate.. I can't watch his fingers/chords during changes.. it messes me up....:lol:

    it's good really, I have to listen/anticipate more.... :)

    the first few guitars I made him, his son grabbed.... so I got him the turser to keep him away from dad's guitars...:lol:

    that Turser SG was so cheap.. and plays/sounds damn fine.... the kid is still thrashing it a few years later....:twisted:..

    I bought it on a whim thinking about my mate and his son and didn't see them for near 8 mths before I got it out and gave it to him....

    the look on his face was priceless...:twisted:

    Yes that's a 68 Princeton reverb. It's a fantastic amp that does everything I need it to do. Excellent reverb & tremolo and very responsive controls. Even though I primarily use it for bedroom practice, I know I could gig with it no problems. I primarily play classic rock & blues, so it fits those genres with ease.

    I would definitely recommend one!

    Lefties, you say? Count me in!

    Allow me to introduce my wife and my mistress; the Gibson has been my #1 guitar for...14 years next month. The Fender came into my life three years ago. Between the two of them, I'm a pretty happy guy:
