Someone Please Help ME!!!!!!!!! - Any Possible Way To get Th

Hey everyone, I was at the mall and we have a music store there but the guy is a little too pricy so its a rarity when I go in there....so today i figured I'd go in there. I saw the Ibanez S470QS. I now believe in love at first sight! oh my god holding it in my hands it felt so great. but here's the down side...I AM LEFT-HANDED!!! NO!! Can anyone give me info on getting this straight from the company because I can get the "S470" but no I want the S470QS!!! Can I go through a dealer and order the guitar and have it shipped to me? like any possible way? thank you so much everyone. peece.

Unfortunately in the US market, you are only going to find the RG470 with a Left Hand option. *You may find a Jem555, but it is doubtful. *The only other option (I use the term option loosely) is a GRX 20.

Scott, that is pretty crazy! *I mean, sure Hendrix did it, but trying to use the trem and controls would be tricky!

I know *LOL* Just an idea, but now that I take a look at a picture of one "What the hell was I thinking?" Anyway I think you would be paying quite a bit for Ibanez to build you one, but it doesn't hurt to try! Good Luck!!!

Good luck A.J. *Maybe now that Ibanez has discontinued the 555 they'll make something really cool for left-handers. As you already mentioned, you may end up being better off going with a company that has a custom shop...at least for the time being.

* * * *Hmmmm, I wonder if Frank Falbo does lefty instruments?

Ain't it great being left-handed? *I am a lefty also so I feel your pain. *Your best bet is to spend some quality time searching for a custom builder like Harpers, Custom Guitar Wares or the like. *You might even try getting one of the plain s470L and making it your own through some wild customization. *I have a lefty 555 and before I found it I had some pretty wild ideas. *Good luck.

Their are a bunch of folks that will build anything for you just be careful some people are ruthless to lefties.

* * * * *LEFTIES
* * * * *579 High Road
* * * * *Leytonstone
* * * * *London E11 4PB
* * * * *Tel: 020 8556 3000

They would be able to give you some advice at least.
