Left Handed Spectrum DX,Someone Might Want It?

Post by Sollophonic on Sun Jan 24, 2016 4:49 pm

Tempted to smag this for the pickups and neck alone, but I am right handed. Mind you my own Spectrum ST balances nicely in reverse so it would still work for me.

Any SouthPaw Westie fans into getting this as a project, all it really needs is a compatible bridge, or someoen who is prepared to find an alternative. If it was right handed, I'd have this now. The Spectrums have really nice necks, in fact the most playable slim necks I have come across, and I'm a fan of chunkier ones Wink

You couldn't go too wrong picking this up as you say, for parts. Really bad pix but those could be UBC's in there, so not much of a bar-goon maybe.

Ah but then there's some of us that actually quite like the Magnaflux/UBC pickups. They do clean/funky stuff well, plus not all of us do the high gain stuff either. And they are still way better than some of the stuff that commands high prices these days.

On the other hand, not all of us are left handed either.

Just checked out my own right handed ST, and in reverse it seems to balance OK, so this one with a replacement bridge would work for a righty, I suppose.

Pretty sure the DXs had 45s in 'em, eh!! 

Anyway, should you want a bridge for it, Sollo, I happen to have a complete FT bridge here which could be yours for a reasonable price.....

All of us are born left handed.

You'll need a L/hand bridge.

Someone else got it. Maybe they'll join in here when they've fixed it up;-)
