    does a left handed guitar sound the same when a right handed guitars strings are reversed??

    cos i done tht n the E maKes a buzzing sound ..

    is the only way for left handed guitarist to buy a right handed one n then reverse strings to make it left handed or do we have the option for going for custom made ones.

    help pls cos m thinkin of buyin me a new one btw i have a desi make of hobner:p:

    the reason its making a buzzin sound is coz the height of ur guitar is less... u have to heighten it....

    doooood, if its acoustic(i.e. round hole ones wid no cut away)den tz okay......(but dont go for fender:p:)

    or reversin string n playin in a good acoustic/electric/bass will be a huge problem.....coz of the shape...will sound bad too....

    and if ur a starter , den lemme tell u this, PLAY AS A RIGHTY.i kno i kno tht it lookz kool,but the fun will be over after 6 months.:p:and ull cry while thinkin tht u cant get a floyd rose and send countless e-mails to every shop in india to get u a fender or ibanez or ny good guitar:cry1:wen u go to a gtr shop, u cant play any guitar , u just can look at them thtz all.....wen buyin one,itll be da same too.....

    if u opt for playin drums, everythin will be fine dere too, but in india , u cannot find a lefty double bass pedal man!

    but i saw in some site tht a band wid a left handed gtrsit attracts audience 33% more:grin:
