I have a lefty strat copy which I got as non-working for £15. I have levelled the frets and flipped the nut to make it basically right handed, and replaced the jack which was worn and corroded - not making contact. It plays nicely and for cheap ceramics single coil pickups it does sound alright. I guess Trevor Wilkinson really turned up the quality on Encore guitars. Back in the 80s they were bad. It place really well, the reverse headstock makes it feel slinky and I only use one string tree on the bottom e and a as the break angle is negligible on those without. It’s easy to tune ( I have a Firebird so I am used to a reverse headstock) It’s routed HSH so my plan is HSS using spare alnico 5 single coils off another project and an alnico 2 vintage wind humbucker. Also replacing the left handed pots with right handed too. But I find the high fret access tricky. How did Jimi do it? This was meant to be a parts bin guitar .... Is it worth finding a cheap right hand body? or persevere and work on the technique for my little hands to get to the high frets?
