Lefty Jazzmaster

Post by dyllpan » Fri Jan 19, 2007 4:12 pm

I am lookig for a left handed Jazzmaster. But they seem prtety hard to find.
I am really looking for a japanese one. I've checked ebay but theay only have one that's
sold fom England wich will than cost $1400!! That's a bit to much for a Japanese Jazzmaster.
Usually they would sell for $800 to a $1000.
Do you have any ideas on were I may find one?
Thanks for your time.

there's a warmoth lefty body on US ebay right now...why not buy that, stick a stratocaster lefty neck on, a couplemore bits and be ready to go?

just a thought....here's the auction, I am not affiliated in any way....

or maybe you could order one direct from Ishibashi?

The only shop that I know of that specializes in lefty, but looks like they're expensive too - $1400 for a CIJ lefty PLUS the case (extra).....

Where do you live? Ordering one from Ishibashi will probably be the cheapest route.

Thank you all.

I just think that $1400 is allot of money for a Japanese Fender.

That Ishibashi is really great! Although a bit confusing.
