So you made it left-handed, pulled the middle pickup, stuck a pick holder on it and replaced the tone control with a mini-toggle? Nice!

I was thinking of making my 550 lefthanded, but so much work!
Seriously though, I like a modded guitar, it feels more "yours" when your done.

Why is the picture reversed?

And what mods did you make to the electronics? What's the mini-switch for?

I Got no digital cam or anything so i have to use a regular VideoCam and windows reversed it through the process(don't ask) and now i'm not gonna look for te option to reverse it back..

Anyway the mini switch splits the V7 , neck hum to singel..

Weird. I noticed that happening in the security office where i work. When i started there, they shot video stills of us to use on our ID badges. I looked at the photo of one of my co-workers and noticed that the part in his hair was on the wrong side in the photo. I thought it was just an anomaly with the way the cards were printed. Kinda weird that Windows flips the image.

Anyway, MS Paint can flip the image back.

Modding your guitars is like an addiction... once you've started, it's hard to stop. I definitely agree with jim777 in that it really makes the instrument feel a lot more like "yours" when you start tweaking it to suit your needs.

You should stuff a Jawa action figure in the middle pickup cavity.
