  1. By ‘dead’ do you mean buzzing? Sounds like you just need a set up.

  2. AFAIK, my 1994 US Fender Strat uses the same set-up as a right handed guitar; the only difference it makes is with the pots. Because they taper the way they do, fitting everything in in mirror image (basically upside down to achieve that - you can't have the pup wiring running the opposite direction, remember, it won't fit), the numbers on the knobs run the 'wrong' way around - e.g. if memory serves (it's been a long time since I looked down at it, and my eyesight isn't what it was to notice this when playing....), the volume knob on mine effectively runs 10 to 1, loudest to quietist, opposite what it should. Never bothered me, tbh, though I am sure somebody somewhere probably makes a knob that just pops in and give it 'right'. If you're big on those volume knob 'violin swell' effects, the volume pot will run the other direction using a r/h loom on a let handed guitar, so you'd have to factor that in. The other thing, of course, is pickups. If you're using flat poles there will be no difference; 50s style staggered poles will end up the other way up from designed. Course, Hendrix wasn't exactly held back by that. Some will claim Jimi made that part of his tone, but tbh once you're amped and cranked, you'd probably need at least a touch of canine dna in you to notice the difference.
