Another custom lefty guitar

Hey everyone

Well some of you might know I'm getting a UV7MC replica made by MR. LGM himself as a lefty ! I wanted this guitar since 1993 I think but since Ibanez never made a lefty NO chance then. At the same time there was another guitar I was dying for, namely EVH EB/MM. But there also no lefty. Well, after 10 years of searching I found someone who could do it, LGM (UV7MC) plus I found someone who would make me a lefty EVH EB/MM. NB Custom Guitars in Canada, I asked about them a few weeks ago, no reply though . I thought then after asking around in other places of the net to go for it (I have to much cash at the moment, LOL). Well enough with the talking, now for a pic (just the beginning)



SAWWWWWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEETTTTTTTTTTT

Regards

André

Really, I wasn't aware of that !!! But anyhow the guy doing this for me, has done a few Peavey Wolfgang replicas in left one of them was at NAMM, so he has experience and that was main reason for chosing him in the end.

André

I did a Lefty MM Axis from Warmoth parts & it turned out great. I had the body done in one pc Swamp Ash topped in a one pc AAAA Quilt top dyed purlpe w/cream binding. The Floyd is set up to float, the hardware is gold. The neck is flamed maple with the 4+2 headstock. The entire project cost $750.00 + a few hrs of assy.

Sounds like a sweet sweet guitar you made there yourself. Got any pics of it!!!! I didn't trust myself and my ability to make the guitar myself, so I looked for someone who could !

For me when I started playing guitar that was not an option. I am as lefthanded as one can get and going right is for me impossible. I tried, no good! Like you said lefties have a hard time but at the moment I'm getting two custom guitars made and they're going to be great I know it!

Regards

Andre
