  • Lefty Jazzmaster copies?

    Can anyone recommend some manufacturers/sellers of Jazzmaster copies for lefties in the US? I'm familiar with the SX SJM, and like the price, but would prefer something with a more traditional JM body shape. I'd be open to other offset copies as well (Mustang, Jaguar, etc.).

    Thanks!

    Xavier has one. The Klanch would be the one to talk to, maybe can build one.

      Thanks, but I thought Xaviere guitars were not made for lefties. Is this not the case anymore?

        buy a really nice warmoth neck

        have klanch do the body

        get a guard from jeannie pickguards

        pickups from seymour duncan

        kluson tuners

        personally i'd go with a TOM bridge over that crappy vibrato, those things suck

        graph tech nut and saddles

        you're set

          Thanks for the recommendations. Not sure I'm up for a project like that, but how much would you estimate that pieces would cost?

            body really depends on the wood and finish, neck can run up to 250 for a top quality warmoth, pickups and wiring would be like 200, pickguard would be like 80, tuners would be like 50, bridge would be like 50 as well if you go with a tune-o-matic.

            you're looking at like 700 bucks for a guitar that would be way better than a japanese jazzmaster
