    Hello people, I have been a member for some time but I rarely post as I am a left-handed player and there doesn't seem to be any others out there. Is there, by any chance, a forum for lefties? I really enjoy playing and modding guitars, mine and friend's. My main players are a 2006 MIM Strat, 2011 Squier Affinity, modded to play like a Lead II and a 2009 Ibanez ART-100L. 20200819_143700.jpg

    Yes there is you can Goggle it and it will come up.:)

    There are a few of us lefties on here, hiding under the left hand rug. :D

    Here is one of my favorite strats, my replica of Dick Dale's 'The Beast', getting signed by him before he passed away.

    ...yeeeess?


    Seriously, about the only thing I can do left-handed is shoot. You'd think if my left hand can run the fretboard, it would be useful for other things too, but noOOOoooo. I feel so deprived. :oops:

    Lefty here! I’ve seen a few on this forum. There’s also the lefty guitarist group on Reddit, but I don’t find it very active.

    For a while there was about 5 of us in my home town. Except for me they were all some of the very best players in town.
