    Hello list,

    Very soon I would be going to buy an Electric Guitar (mostly a custom guitar.. but if budget doesn't allow, i would have to go for a ready-made electric). I would like to know what is the typical *steps* one follows while picking a guitar...

    1. Given that I'm a left hander (and that I cannot play the righty guitar "ulta" without reversing the strings) how do I go about picking up a guitar? Is it "okay" to ask him to reverse the strings for a number of guitars while I "try" them out?

    2. Do I pick the guitar-of-my-choice first and then pick the amp?

    3. Assuming I shortlist 'N' guitars and 'M' amps, Is it okay to try N x M combinations? ;) What is the "ethical" level of torturing the guitar shop owner? ;)

    Since you are from Bangalore, Go to Reynolds, Every one in 100 guitars are Lh.. but i suggest you go to Chennai and get it made cause it would mean that you will be real comfortable cause it will be built jus tthe way you want it..

    Amps As you said can be Bought after the guitar. .Checking the feedback and stuff.. Also You can torture the Reynolds guy as much as you want. .Call me i'll help you torture him...
