Dumb Question.


Recommended Posts

This is a really dumb question. Is there any difference between a left and a right handed guitar neck other than the headstock direction? I know the nut with be "backwards" but it would be replaced with a locking nut anyway. I guess what I'm asking is can a left handed neck be installed on a right handed guitar?

Thanks,

Keith

on first impressions it would be fine, although there are some necks (i think peavy do it) that are profiled to be larger on the top than the bottom... ie its non-symmetrical..i imagine that this would feel a bit weird....

so what i;m saying (or at least i think i'm saying) is that its fine, as long as the neck isn;t ridiculously shaped :D

A few Fender necks are set up for that (SRV sig model), but I'd think you'd know that when purchasing.

The only thing would be if it's got an AANJ, it might not work...

Also, the dot markers (not the ones on the fretboard) but the ones on the side will be on the wrong side so you won't see them unless you make some new ones on the other side.

Or mount a mirror under the neck, so that you can see what's on the underside....

A bit stupid maybe, but it would be cool, IMO.
