    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!
