    Greetings all. Old-time player here, learned to play back in the mid-70s. Lost my hand in the Marine Corps and have not played for over 20 years. I've been trying to learn the guitar anew left-handed. I have an Ibanez as73 lefty that I picked up as a proof of concept to test the waters to see if this is feasible. I think it is so I took the plunge and ordered and ebony Les Paul classic from Sweetwater. I'm new to Gibson as all of my guitars have been Japanese copies [a univox strat copy and an ibanez rr250] until now. I have a lot to learn, and relearn, and hope to glean much from the collective wisdom of the community. cheers for now.

    Welcome, fairly new here myself but I have to say this is probably the friendliest most helpful community I've seen.... Friday's can get kind of crazy though :)
    Good Luck to you, don't give up!

    LOVE the UP!

    I'm familiar with the Keewenaw Peninsula, Houghton, Calumet areas.

    In Wixom now, and USN vet myself, just want to wish you a very warm and sincere welcome!
