as my grandmother used to tell me -- "i never met a right-hander, worth a damn" Continue
Hey all you 'South-Paws' out there.
Ya got another one here from Ireland. Nearly finished my first basic 3 string fretless. No woodwork experience at all, no man-cave, tool shed, or tools for that matter, Just a 2yr old daughter running wild when I get a few precious moments in the day to drill or sand something! LOL
Has been a real eye opener. Kudos to all you Guys'n'Gals for your wonderful creations. Credit to you all. I cannot even play guitar. I tried many times to play a 6 string but couldn't get my head around the chords and as y'all know, being a leftie can be tough as you can't pick up someones guitar at a party a knock out a tune, so I decided to to forget it as a lost cause. Then I read up on CBG's, no rules, mess around, have fun... Thats it, I'm in!
Hope to post a pic of my attempt real soon,
For the guys having trouble with left hand pics. heat up right handers till they become soft and, reshape them to your liking.
Hi all, another lefty for your group. I'm from Hailey,Idaho.
I've just finished my 6th build and feel that I now have some knowledge about what everyone has been talking about. I'm a woodworker by trade so I had that part. now I want to know how to make them sound prestine. Thanks in advance for having me.
Hi everybody, I've being hoping to find a group like this. i 'm a lefty, and just started building 3 string cbg's. but having trouble working out how to set the intonation for a lefty. and ideas or help would be great. I've built two 3 stringers, and i'm starting to work on my first 4 string. Hope everyone had a great and safe New years.
Hi people, another southpaw here, this one's from the Netherlands. Some of you may know me as "Olav" on LeftyGuitarTraderForum, or you might not have heard of that place at all... LOL
Anyhoo, been a lefty player for 20+ years, own several models and brands lefty guitars, not one righty in the bunch. Actually that's not true... My uke and balalaika are both ex righties (meaning the side dots are on the wrong (!) side of the neck. I've built a couple electric guitars, now I'm looking to do a CBG. I'll post a thread once I start building.
My adventure with DYI instruments started over 25 years ago, just BECAUSE I'm lefty. Almost every single guitar/bass guitar/upright I own/owned had to be "strung-over". Including stuff like cutting new bridges and nuts, "mirroring" the guitar bodies etc. So now I'm here, up to no right ;-)
