Title says it all...wish they had some at that price for us right handers!
I've had a quick look on the net, but can't find that. Do you have a link, Sp8ctre?
Hope you get one! I was in Sam Ash and saw one sitting right up front on display. I grabbed it and was going straight for the counter when I realized it was a lefty! I asked the sales manager for a right handed and he said sorry only lefty's at this price...sheer disappointment and I already have 3 higher model SG's. You can always use another SG right?
Just seen it here: http://www.samash.com/left-handed-electric-guitars/sgj-left-handed-electric-guitar-gsgjlxxxx-p
Can't afford it, don't know how I'd get it out of the USofA, but I do have a credit card, a job and thus I'm thinking about it.
I'm thinking rubbed vintage burst?
I took my credit card right through the process to the 'press to confirm button', but it didn't feel right because I'd input a British address which had been accepted (too afraid of the wife to send the guitar to us here in Korea!) and the delivery/transport/shipping still said ' free' - I felt like my money might be sucked into a computer error abyss, to I backed out at the last second.
A rubbed vintage burst delivered to Old Blighty for $399 just didn't sound right at all. I sent them an email to ask how and if I can buy at that price. & no, I don't have the money for it...
keep us posted if those righty's pop up at that price-- that's a no brainer!
You got to have one or two organs you're not using right now right?
You shouldn't encourage me like that, Scott! You can probably play well, I can just get through a powerchorded punk rhythm, so it's hard to justify a new guitar, but a nice Gibson at that price is great; and they are 500 pounds in the UK which is about $780 (255 pounds - that is insane really, and for a lefthooker!).
I just got an email from Sam Ash, and gave them my details. They are gonna get back to me with shipping costs - if it's under $100, I'll go for it (although I'd like $50 shipping costs). It's about 24% tax into the UK, so that works out at about $623 - doesn't sound so good now...
Vintage burst or cherry?
Just got the full costs including shipping and taxes: $670 - once again us Brits get shafted... I won't go for it at that price.
I like the cherry one. And I'm not a great player, mostly a rhythm guitar kinda guy (if I was in BOC I'd be playing Eric's parts). :)
Sam Ash is also selling them through Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...de=as2&tag=lefty02-20&linkId=JQ2NFUCZ37SHYMGC
Wow, looks like they're only down to white and vintage burst already.
thats about 270,- on top only for shipping and taxes....
damn you could get a well condition epi g400 lefty for that money...
These are great guitars. I almost wrote "for the money". Then I realized they are great guitars period.
Betty cost $250 (including bag, extra strings, tuner and delivery).
Sam Ash were very helpful, but their shipping company was 3 times what I usually pay with DHL for longer distances. I paid $55 to get that damn heavy Randall from Germany to Korea, for example (and there were other bits in the load, so it totaled just over 16kg).
I was quite close to buying one and sending it to somebody in the US (not just anybody...), then getting them to send it to Korea for $50 or so putting in an invoice under $400 including shipping (then they'd've been no Korean taxes); so, the total cost would have been around $450. I probably should have done that, but in a fit of irritation I bought me wife and meself a ukulele instead - should arrive next week - get ready for the NUD thread...
haha ... noice....
gonna have fun with it !!!!
