    what's best PRS lookalike for a lefty gutiarist

    Sign in to disable this ad
    A lot of my favorite bands play Paul Reed Smith guitars. Paul Reed Smith has been quoted as saying something along the lines of "They don't make left handed pianos, so I'm not going to make left handed guitars." That comment by itself is just about unforgivable to me. I'm naturally right handed and I've been playing left handed guitar religously for 3-4 years and I'm not switching to righty guitar.

    Anyway, there are lots of PRS lookalike guitars out there for lefties but I don't know which one to get. There's lookalikes made by Carvin, Schecter, Agile, Tokai, and Dillion. After I buy the guitar I'm probably going to replace the pickups with active EMG's anyway. For Agile, Tokai, and Dillion I'm also probably going to update the bridge and tuners (except for the grovers that come standard on Agiles). As far as looks go I'd prefer emerald green on quilted maple. I've seen less expensive Tokai's and Dillion's that are Emerald Green on quilted maple. Please help me pick my next guitar.

    Left handed people or as they sometimes are called "Southpaws" are a sick and twisted breed. A mix of human and beast. They are known to kill unprovoked, and are completely unpredictable. Sometimes they have been known to devour entire villages only to move back into the woodlands they emerge from during feeding season. That is why sir Paul Reed Smith has taken it upon himself to ensure the downfall of these beasts...

    You can get the Carvin CT series in lefty for no extra charge. They've got a couple on their lefty instock page.
    The fabulous Naiant Mics, perfect for acoustic instruments!

    If you don't have DavidK's CD, you are a loser.


    My tunes. Thanks!

    If you can't help me in choosing my next guitar then don't even bother posting like this guy did.

    Not sure if they offer a lefty, but a lower cost option is the Cort MGM. Great axe for the price.
    I wish my lawn was Emo so it'd cut itself.

    *TRD catches a little dribble off the side of his chin, feels his bottom lip flubber and knows deep down he really does like apl - and hopes for ditto

    I think you mightbe able to find a Schecter that'll catch your eye somewhere- very close to PRS aesthetically.

    *acknowledges both Carvin and Schecter- being from Cali- allow for left handed masturbation*
    Big Fucking Deal...

    Heres some funny info. I used to sell PRS guitars and we had lefties. Personally, I am a lefty that, thank God, chose to play righty when I was 10. I'd never play a left handed guitar Good luck mate.

    grow a sense of humor man. He was making a damn funny joke. Not intended to deter you from your goal or obscure the path for others to provide advice.

    I thought it was funny and gave the man some rep for it.

    Ive owned some damn nice Carvin gear in my time, but cannot vouch for the guitars. Seems they make quality gear though. Can;t see their guitars being any different. With that being said - I like to play git's before I buy them.

    Ive never played any of the others.
