Left Handed JS10th?? - Could or would they do it?

A friend of mine is a left handed player. He is a Big Satch fan and he REALLY wants a JS10th.
He said he called ibanez a long time ago about it *but *they told him they wouldnt do it. He was willing to pay Big Bucks for it too but he said they still told him no. Did anyone ever hear of a lefty 10th being made??

Ibanez AFAIK will NOT do custom jobs unless you're endorsed. *And then they probably wouldn't do a custom of another endorsee's guitar. *Take a look around at some custom shops. *I know quite a few that will do JSs and JEMs exactly.

ANSWER: * No. * Add to that the fact that the JS10th is 5 years old or so, and you have a "Hell no". *Ibanez no longer has a custom shop for us "regular people". *It's for endorsers only. *

You could have a lefty replica made by some other company, put in the proper pickups, hardware, etc, and just add a normal JS neck, or any other neck (a JS reverse could be cool!)

Getting a JS10th custom built can be tough even if you use some other company. As I understand it the chrome coating isn't the easiest thing in the world to do...

If your friend (or anyone else) still wants a chrome JS lefty custom built, send me an email at [email protected]. I can do it at quite a reasonable rate!!!
