Post pics of lefty Competition Mustangs!

I have seen examples in red with and without matching headstocks. Kurt Cobain owned a blue one with a matching headstock. Has anyone seen an orange one???

i swear it confuses the hell out of my brain whenever i see lefty fenders. but i do wish they didn't discriminate so hard against our friends in the right minds. y'alls get left out (no pun intended) of too many good guitars.

It's the opposite for me, it's weird, every time I see a right fender it confuses me. It must have something to deal with the controlling part of your brain.

the first time we played a show with a band called Zoinks! way back in the 90's, I couldn't figure out what was odd about them. Turned out, the entire band was left handed. Lefty bass, guitar and drumset.

I don't understand why left handed people play guitar "left handed". I mean, most of what you do when playing the "right handed" way is with your left hand. and either way you learn how to play you have to learn how to use your non-dominant hand. so why does it matter which way you learn?

i used to think this, that the way people decided left and right handed guitars should be was very arbitrary. it made more sense to me to put the (probable) more dexterous hand over the fretboard rather than the non-dominant hand.

mainly because both felt about the same to me. i learned lefty for about two days before deciding to switch to righty because it meant i wouldn't have to a) buy a new guitar before i even started learning and b) would be easier if and when i wanted to buy new guitars down the road.

my bandmate, who is left handed and doesn't play guitar, will pickup up a guitar and "play" (read: flail on the strings) left handed. if he holds it the other way it just feels wrong apparently, even though he can't play guitar at all.

is the orientation of guitars in regards to handedness inherited from classical instruments?

I remember this competition red lefty came up on ebay a few years ago and took a couple of listings before it finally sold. I think people were sketchy of the non-white decal on the headstock - i certainly was Smile

Same reason rightys play righty I imagine...because it's what feels more natural. If I were to go back, I'd like to have learnt to play righty, for the sole reason of not getting screwed over in the availability and price of guitars.
Having said that, I've always loved the fact that at gigs when some chonst from another band says - "I've broken a string, or forgotten my guitar can I borrow yours?" I can just say no, I'm left handed. That and fuck off.

It's more an economic decision. The numbers of lefty players is so much smaller and the investment in reversing everything costs money. As mentioned previously, many lefties just play guitar right handed anyway. My wife does that. Taylor Guitars actually does not charge extra for lefty models which is cool.
