We rarely get to see the lefties and Gibson doesn't make a ton of them, making them rather special in their own right. Please show us! -Rod-

My current 4. Alpine White Custom, Wine Red Traditional, Heritage Cherry Sunburst Traditional, and Pelham Blue Studio.

The white Custom is my oldest (late 90s). The other 3 are all 2012s. That's the year Gibson really stepped up their lefty offerings.

I'm pretty sure that I've never seen 4 lefties at one time in my life. Great stuff! -Rod-

i just noticed that i don't have any decent pics of my guitars, i guess i play them more instead of taking pictures of them. i should try to make better pics, any suggestions how to make good looking pics with a budget camera ?
i have found these pics :

on the left a 1989 std middle is a 1991 custom and a 2000 sg


the 1989 naked.
it came with bill lawrence 'the original' gibson humbuckers which i sold long ago. the knobs and pointers are not original.

it seems to me gibson is making more lefties since the last three or four years now, did sales on righthanded guitars drop that much that they decided to make more lefties ?
if you look on the german thomann site you'll see so many lefties you could only dream of ten years ago.

I can't look at a lefty guitar. They just look so weird. When I first started playing guitar it took me five years to transition from left to right-handed playing. I did it because I was told I could never make the switch. Today ill play any neck size and I wont whine about them being too thick, too thin, blah blah blah

Lefty guitar. Righty guitar. They both look fine to me. Like no righty has ever caught themselves looking in a mirror and admiring....their mirror created "lefty" guitar.

Just seems like every single time there is a NGD lefty thread or one like this, some idiot has to say something about how 'weird' the left handers look. Does it every occur to them that the right handed models look 'weird' to us southpaws, just gets to be a drag, everytime, you know? We have a tough enough time with some of the manufacturers treating us like freaks, without $hit like this ....
