He gets my vote for "best lefty Flying V pipe smoking player."  The field was bigger than you think.
Just to get an idea how big the field was...
What kind of pipes are acceptable for this? There were a lot of players in the 80s who played V's and smoked pipes of sorts.

Jimmy Hendrix is a much better guitarist than my second choice, Kurt Cobain, but I like Kurt's style much more.

Here's another lefty who plays with the strings reversed. Greta Brinkman, bassist for Moby et al.

Hey everybody,

i know the thread hasent been frequented a lot in the past months, but i just stumbled across it, and had to put my opinion in:

I started out leftie strung righty, on a epiphone SG, so i didnt have the cutawayproblem, only had to worry about the cable sticking out the body, and the knobs. as soon as i got my first tunes down (like the intro of under the bridge, i unintentionally learned a barre chord with my first task), i got myself a righthanded leftie squier strat, and restrung it myself, switched the nut around, and also switched the position of the slanted pickup. it sounded ****ty though, and i was really disappointed. this wasnt because of the modification though, the squier was just a ****ty guitar. now, after 3 years of playing, i bought my self the little brother of my dream guitar, the KH202 from ESP/LTD, and had it professionally modified, and fitted with the important parts of kirks guitar (like the emgs, they only come on his signature guitar). I am sooooo happy with it!!!

here are my babys (redesigned to fit my playing needs, because i also dont have a lot of choice due to up-side-down play):

Personally I voted Paul Gray (Other)

because frankly, I either am bored with, or clueless about the rest.

Rusty Burns of Point Blank.  A local band that's been around forever.  He's a Dick Dale/Albert King lefty.  Bass string on the bottom.

Ignore the cheesy piano intro.
