Well, I figure I'll offer it to someone before I make alterations. I can provide pics if anyone is interested.
It just isn't working for me as is. If nobody wants it, it may not be very recognizable soon. . . :devil2:

No takers? I realize there may only be a few members with access to this section so I'm going to send a few pm's.
I'm ready to send her on her way or part her out.

An Avenger would probably be a better fit. The problem isn't it's left handedness. The upper horn on the RS body is fairly tight to the neck making it nearly impossible to play past the 12th fret or so when upside down (she's strung rt handed) unless you're maybe 10 yrs old. The other issue is the controls. I toyed with the idea of making a new pickguard and relocating the controls but I can't get past the first issue. I don't want to cut her up trying to make her conform, she's still a nice player.
