We need a 'LEFTIES' forum on GC too.

Recommended Posts

I'd like that very much. The only downside of being a left-handed player (apart from all the MORONS who like to claim the guitar "isn't a handed instrument" and such tripe) is when you read reviews of something that looks exactly what you're after.... and then inevitably it's not available left handed at all, or only in the crap colours (I'm so, so, so over black, white and burst....). Useful to have a resource where we can pool information on thatsort of thing - especially with Holiday music, it seems, now a thing of the past. 

 

Better for lefties now than at anytime  can remember, though - Fender have improved a thousand fold, some brands like Godin who did *no* lefties have started, and there's the likes of Eastwood making stuff that was previously no chance actually available left handed.

Surely playing, buying, modifying and enjoying the guitar is the same for all, with the obvious exception of less guitars available for LH players?

I've heard a lot of people say that. All of them  were right handed. ;)

True, but tell me what a LH player would gain from a specific thread? Genuine question.

Having all yer leads going the wrong way is a good start. Positioning pedals when you play so the lead isn't across your body all the time and tripping you. The design of so many products and playing spaces that assume a right-handed norm - it goes way further than simply  a choice of limited models in the crap colours.

What is this 'lead' of which you speak..?

It'd also clear us out of all yer threads with our "but it's not available for ussssssss!" chorus. Which I'd have thought a bonus... 

;) 

 

Would you then be reading both leftie and rightie topics, then, or missing out on the rightie stuff..? We would be reading both, too, so would still see the 'it's not available to us..!' stuff, but just in a different topic. Hmm... 

Disclaimer : I'm rightie, but play drums 'leftie'. I don't have any issues reading drum forums.
