Be careful of kits. They aren't all the same when it comes to quality pieces of wood, parts and fitment issues. Always check the reviews first. If you get one, look everything over and check for fitment/alignment issues first.

Welcome Tim.

Comment by Tim Mooset yesterday

There is a nice Left LP semi hollow body kit on ebay I have my eye on.

I gravitate towards Classical guitars, easy to convert to lefty, I'm ordering a pattern for a Telecaster, gong to make my own Lefty Fender Telecaster copy/clone

Comment by Tim Mooset on Saturday

Haha..yep...a weirdo lefty. The great thing about CBG's is that i can build my own lefties. Trying to find/buy a left handed guitar is a royal pain.

Comment by Tim Mooset on Saturday

This is Red Star. 4 string fretted piezo travel guitar. Because I'm in the travel business I designed this one so it will fit into an20180108_100014.jpg airline overhead bin. Fits perfectly in a baritone uke bag. I love it.

Comment by Richard Dean on Saturday

Ahhhh....another Lefty!!
