    Hey everyone! Just wanted to introduce myself to the forum, my name is Nick. Always nice to find a place with other lefties!

    I've been playing guitar on and off since I was a teenager(in my late 20's now) and currently picked it back up strong. I'm sure it's the same with all of you here, on a quest to find high quality left handed guitars!

    My current lefty stable is as follows:

    Fender MIJ E-Series Stratocaster (BKP Apache set)
    Fender 1975 Stratocaster
    Carvin DC700 (SD Pegasus/Sentient)
    Suhr Pro Series S2
    LTD M-1000 Snow White
    Zion Maple Top T

    Hey Nick, my name is Joe, welcome to the greatest lefty guitar forum in the world! I'm sure you will enjoy being here hanging out and talking about guitars or whatever...
    Theres a few guys from the Empire state here with us actually.
    You have some really nice guitars listed there, I'd love to see pictures of them, especially that 1975 Strat cause that sounds kinda tasty. The M1000 is a nice guitar, I was so tempted to get one when they first came out, and I still find myself looking at them. They have a nice spec sheet that I can agree with almost totally.
    Anyways, welcome to the jungle we have fun and games.

    Hey, are you gonna eat that?

    This is an older picture of the Zion. I actually just sent it back to Zion for a complete setup and replaced the pickups with their suggested Dimarzio Breed/Heavy Blues 2 config. The pickguards are proprietary so I couldn't just drop something in on my own.

    PS. I'm most likely looking to sell the Carvin if anyone is interested.

    welcome to the forum. Some sweet axes you got there for sure. The carvin looks nice. SS frets? 25.5 Scale Length? if your looking to sell you can post over in the classifieds.
