    I am looking for a metric crescent wrench. Or possibly an adjustable hammer.

    I own 22 left handed guitars, took me a life time to find...
    2 words- southpaw guitars!

    https://www.southpawguitars.com/

    I get feeling like a diabetic kid in a candy store , and all the righties give you BS replys like , learn to play right handed , I had an uncle who knew some one who did it.
    The only thing you will find is 1) strats ( I own 2) 2) Les pauls ( own 3) 3) maybe an affinity tele 4) and some Epi modles ( dont expect miracles there either)
    check out south paw they are exclusive to us lefties!

    I own a vintage left-handed fishing reel. Thought you should know that.

    It actually didn't hurt that bad...

    ...although I wouldn't recommend trying it! ;)

    Violin players aren't seated by any whim.....there's a reason for everyone's particular location. FACT OF LIFE.....a violinist who plays left-handed simply doesn't get a job with an orchestra....doesn't matter how good he/she is. Sorry.

    Yes , you should . See , we agree .
    Everyone knows that left handers tend to be more gifted musicians . It is a very simple equation . Yes , I am aware of the dogmatic elitism in the orchestral world and how an orchestra is comprised .
    Just for the fun of it , I would love to assemble a full orchestra made up of left handers only , conductor included .
    If you dare to look , you will find some very accomplished lefty players in duets , trios , quartets , quintets ...... These are the places where the talents of the individual are permitted to shine instead of the orderly bias of the large group .
    In closing , should a true virtuoso lefty violinist fail to be converted/perverted that somehow manages to buck the dogma were to emerge , I have no doubt that any major orchestra would be able to find a way to allow them to play with them . If not , that is their loss .
    The irony of all of this is that , from what I have read , is that the dominant hand theory in the violin world is the exact reverse of that in the guitar world . Go figure .

    By the way, I am left-handed as far as writing, drawing, and shooting a firearm go, but throw a ball right-handed...and play guitar right-handed.

    Go figure!

    I'll be glad when doctors come up with corrective surgery for that. Better yet, a vaccine....and prenatal detection.

    I've had a number of lefties over the years and have settled with 5 early '90's G&L's; 3 customized with benders, and a stock Legacy and S-500, two Larrivees and two Jerry Jones, along with the other instruments featured in my avatar picture.

    I'd be very interested in a lefty Tribute Doheny.

    I'm pretty sure, 90% of anybody with a stringed instrument would rather be playing anything except orchestral music, no matter how good it is. Sorry.

    A former business associate comes to me and asks how to find a good divorce lawyer. Having never been divorced, I answered I didn't know, but maybe he should find a guy that got hosed in a divorce & hire his ex's attorney. He should have listened...
