Re: I am writing in to Ibanez to request for lefty models; who's supporting me?


I've never really cared, there's not enough lefty guitars to go 'ooo I need the 05 model cos after 05 they changed this and this and it sucked.'

I got what was available, hard enough finding a decent production guitar without faffing about with years and stuff.

I've gone the custom route because I can only get what I want that way . The next guitars I'm waiting for lefty PRS Custom 24 replica (emerald green) and lefty Green Meanie Charvel with a Fernandes sustainer.

Sounds awesome. I've got my Feline 7-string, and that 7-string Jem body for custom things, although I dunno what I'll do with the Jem yet, too many ideas!

I know I'm new, but this is the stupidest thing I've ever read. I play the way I play & I shouldn't be forced to learn another way because the powers that be are not willing to put out a run of guitars for lefties. Most other companies at least put out a short run of all the different models.

Re: I am writing in to Ibanez to request for lefty models; who's supporting me?


You're not being forced. You and I both chose to play left handed because it was the easiest way to start off.

Playing left handed isn't a handicap. It isn't something WE are forced to do either. It's all about choices. We choose to play left handed. We choose not to play right handed. I choose to play mainly 7 strings. It goes on.

No unseen force is forcing you to play left handed. Sure, it's 10x more comfortable to play left handed, and we all suck at playing right handed, but we still could hold a guitar right handed and hit a note, right handed.

Which makes it not discriminatory that they don't offer left handed models.

If they made guitars and said that black people couldn't buy them, then that would be discriminatory. Because that isn't something you can control (unless you're MJ)

OMG

Can people stop talking about descrimination. Is it? Who cares?

What's relevant is that there is a potential market for a wider range of decent lefty guitars, how large remains to be seen but we certainly can't buy guitars that don't exist.

Re: I am writing in to Ibanez to request for lefty models; who's supporting me?


It isn't. And I care

Anyway, NAMM isn't going to show any left handed 7's, and the 8 wont be available left handed either. As far as 6's go, im not sure. But that isn't really my area of interest. So I guess they aren't listening so far.

If anyone wants a lefty ibanez 7 string, there is one on **** right now, ending in two days I think. And no it isn't mine, but it has the same finish as mine

One word: custom guitar builder.

You'd not only get a better guitar, but be sending money to a real working guy, not some big corporation. Try this guy: http://www.jagneauxguitars.com/CustomGuitars.htm
