Left-handed Guitars

Acoustic-Electric Left-Handed Dreadnaught Cutaway - 6 string
Prop. Lindsay Ferguson
There are subtle but critical differences between the treble and bass sides of a guitar - wood thicknesses and bracing, to name just two. This is a true left-hander guitar, not a regular with a backwards sloped bridge glued on. The sound is consistent with the spruce/mahogany format, accentuated by the clarity of the maple neck. Unfortunately, I can't play it. Fortunately, it's ferociously treasured and guarded by its owner.
