I need to make all models available in left handed...not just some, that goes for evertune and other special features  also.!!

Who decides what models should or should not be made in left handed or other special features??

He needs to be "fired".!!

Carl N.

thanks sharing your opinion, unfortunately it isn't feasible to create every single model in a left handed orientation, while we try to offer as many as possible it is clear this has not met your personal expectations

Sam P

Yep your correct....

What I don't understand is why?

You make a blank of the body and neck REVERSE what needs to be reversed, and "Voila" .!!

It's not rocket science, the most you have to do that's hard is programming the machines. most other companies making LF guitars, you start a

"Custom shop" 

Which has to cost a bundle to start up and operate, especially here in the USA as compared to there.

Instead of just doing it all in house, even if it takes more room, which it shouldn't seeing as your making LH axes already.!!

And I will not pay thousands of dollars extra to some custom shop when there is really no need to if you and others already making them would just do as I suggest.!!

Why don't you try to be the ""first"" company to "Cater" to the left handers needs and wants? If you did, there are at least 6 axes I would buy off of you immediately!!





Carl N.

i assure you it isn't as simple as you state it to be.  We have some dealers that specialize in left handed models, perhaps they may having something you'd be interested in.

Sam P

Is this available in left handed model and Evertune with abalone binding?

Carl N.
