    I tried, it but kept getting headaches with blood rushing to my head. I'm sure there's a group out there somewhere, Bulgaria maybe, playing upside down, at night, local version of "Back at the Blue Whale".

    Anyone in the southern hemisphere? :lol::lol::lol:

    Sorry, could not resist.

    Maybe someone could start one - mad respect for anyone who plays a righty, strung righty, as a lefty - if that is what you meant.

    Welcome.

    I know one bloke who's an upside down lefty... one of my oldest friends...

    more through circumstances, than a desire to do so...;)

    I did make him a Tele.. after noticing the controls under his armpit playing flipped righty's.... ;)

    great guitar, nice to play,, I was sorry to see it go....

    So pleased to see this post and to catch it while it's still reasonably current. Of all of the guitars out there, the Tele is the hardest one to both source and build in this particular configuration. Have just finished build no 3 with parts being gathered for the next round, chronicled on iknockedupthistele.com. There is a group of Lefty Rightys out there and have been trying to track down their facebook group.
