    it was probably a left-handed guitar :D .. i don't know of many players these days who play the right-handed guitar inverted.. it's usually a lef-handed guitar.. it's possible though.. :slash:

    :hippie:

    Thanks for the link Flick, they have hourly tours at the Memphis shop, I was really impressed, takes about 45mins, and cost 10.00

    Yes. That's Dan Seals, and he's playing the normally-strung right-handed guitar upside down, just like Albert King (and many others) did......skinny strings on top.

    Every time I try to watch the Gibson video it keeps stopping and stuttering .Is it my system or does anyone else experience the same.
