1. Ovation Elite LEFTY - Model L718, (front), (headstock/neck), (back), (sound holes), (preamp), (label), (case). Quality American Ovation for the lefty player. The L718 features Ovation's 22-soundhole "epaulettes" made of a variety of exotic woods, as well as a solid Sitka spruce top, a 5-piece mahogany/maple neck, Lyrachord body, rosewood fretboard with wooden triangle inlays, rosewood bridge, 22 frets, gold Schaller tuners, 25-1/4" scale, and 1-11/16" nut width. Preamp is Ovations OP-24 which features battery test switch and LED, volume knob, and sliders for bass/mid/treb. Other than a minor ding on the top of the headstock it's in lovely condition and it plays exceptionally nice. List price back in '90 was $1499, which makes it an excellent buy today at just $599. Includes form fit SKB case.
2. 2015 G&L Tribute Legacy - Lefty, (front bridge), (back), (headstock), (electronics). Immaculate condition - killer playing lefty. The Legacy is G&L's version of the Strat and features a gloss-finished ash body and 22-fret (big jumbo's) slab rosewood neck in a C profile. Unlike Fender, the neck has no overhang for the 22 fret so it’s full thickness to the end of the neck pocket and it has a longer neck pocket than a Fender. Truss rod adjustment is at the headstock. This model features USA CLF-100 Alnico 5 single coil pickups with G&L branded white covers, black Forbon vulcanized fibre bobbins, no wax potting and cloth ‘push back’ pickup wire with the middle pickup being RWRP for noiseless operation in positions 2 and 4. The rest of the electronics borrows from the USA model with Volume, Bass, and Treble controls, using Mighty Mite pots (250K for all pots). Bridge is G&L's DFL (Dual Fulcrum) with chrome-plated hardened steel with sufficient up-pull to make it more versatile than a Fender vintage style trem. This guitar has a wonderful set up with low action, nicely finished fret ends and no buzzy strings. Cosmetically it's in beautiful shape with zero flaws noted. If you're looking for a quality Lefty Strat don't pay $549 for a new Tribute Legacy. Get this beautiful one with a perfect set up for just $375.
3. 2014 Fender *Lefty” Standard Telecaster, (front), (headstock), (back). Immaculate condition. Hey players, tell you lefty friends! Virtually flawless Mex Standard that looks, sounds, and plays fantastic. I’ve said for years that these Mex models are a much better value than American Standard when you’re talking quality vs. price. It’s the same 3pc alder body, same USA pots and switch, same Fender/Ping tuners, Alnico pickups and same bridge although recently Fender switched to chromed brass bridge and saddles. Also the Standard model features a vintage 21-fret neck instead of 22 but shares the medium-jumbo frets and modern 9.5” fretboard radius. Clean lefty’s like this are really getting hard to find especially since the major manufactures are up to a year behind in production right now. If you don’t want to wait I can guarantee you won’t find a nicer one. It’s also a popular color in 3-tone sunburst with a maple board which gives it a vintage appearance. Nicely priced at $550 *including* a quality gigbag.
