Re: Is it possible?

you can string a right handed gtr for a lefty style, but then you'd have to change the nut, and maybe the bridge saddles around, to accommodate the strings.
replacing a nut isnt very hard.. the bridge might be ok as it is, depends what type it is..

the only thngs to consider is if the tone and volume knobs get in the way, if it feels ok to you played left handed or not.
some people learn to play it upside down, or they learn to play righty when theyre left handed, but it seems to me it would be easiest to play a normal left handed manner if you're a lefty.

: I havent been playing too long at all but.. someone i know is selling an awesome bass guitar, strap, case, amp, and bunches of different string, and all sounds great and offered it to me for just $150. I know the guy really well and ive listened to him play it and its worth it.

: Ive only played left handed guitars and its right handed.. IS it possible to restring and play it fine lft handed? and if not is it really hard to switch hands?

: Pls email me if u can help.

Re: Is it possible?

only problem is my current is a real pos. Very used and just bought to learn. Now i can play ok but everything online is really expensive...if i could do this i could have the whole set...

and how do i go about replacing a nut..?

Re: Is it possible?

umm replacing a nut.. i've done it myself on guitars.
the www.stewmac.com webiste has some tips on that i think, in their freebee info section. if thats not the right link, it supposed to go to Stewart MacDonald guitar builders parts.

to replace the nut, you simply use a little common sense.. you buy a new nut. they come with grooves in or not. theyre usually plastic, thats ok. grooves in already makes it easier, if not its not a major problem. just get a tiny file and etch a little bit of a groove there for the string to touch on, just deep enough so the string doesnt slide off, you dont want it too deep. to get an idea what it should look like, just sort of look at the old one, and match it.

you could also check out the Fender Squire basses, they arent too bad. really, for 150 you could get a semi decent bass almost anywhere, especially if its used.
if you happen to like this particular bass tho, then you could get it, its up to you, of course.

yep checked, thats the url.
http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Nuts,_saddles.html
goes right to the nuts and bridges.
they apparently have an article how to make a nut in their new edition of ther catalog too. so there you have it. (their catalog is a freebee, and a handy one to have if youre into gtr or bass. they have all sorts of tips for repairs and things.)

Martin Guitar

Martin reccomends you find a reputable dealer for assessment. Thier site <martingutar.co> has a page where you can find when it was made. You can also contact George Gruen Guitars in Nashville. He will provide a written estimate from photos, history, etc. for a small fee.
Cheers

Re: charvel/jackson

Go to the Jackson website:
http://www.jacksonguitars.com/resources/serial_numbers.html This site will give you more information based on the serial number.
