Just to get an idea how big the field was...Super Turbo Deluxe Custom said:He gets my vote for "best lefty Flying V pipe smoking player." The field was bigger than you think.

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):
If any Lefty-strung-righty player needs any input, advice or some techical help, i am offering myself. just write me a message, and i will try to help, i ve had a lot of problems and discussions with my style, so before you go through all that **** too, ask me.
