Lefty Parts

Recommended Posts

I'm considering attempting to build a left-handed RG style guitar but with a fixed bridge (probably a tune-o-matic). I'm just wondering which bits of hardware I need to buy left handed?

I know I need lefty tuners. As far as I can see all tune-o-matic style bridges are the same? Also as far as I can see nuts are all the same? Correct me if i'm wrong.

Anything i've missed? Thanks :D

Tuners may have to be different depending the headstock, 3 a side or reverse dont require left handed parts. Tune0matics are the same. Nuts are usually made from a piece of bone or plastic and can be slotted to suit. You can also get left handed control pots but these are not essential.

Good luck

For "left hand pots" just use the other lug on the pot and you're there. It might be hard to find knobs that go the other way around
