Fender Stratocaster MIM Sunburst 1998 "Jimi" Lefty Conversion
Hey Jimi, walking in your footsteps! Jimi, did you listen?
Our latest conversions (also an OLW) were super cool, we have to do more.
We just bought a Strat from 1998 in veeery good condition.
This means, with it's old spects, it sounds fantastic and with it's only minor scratches, dings and dongs, this is an outstanding axe.
Right, it's a lefty to right conversion. Only righty guys and gals can play it.
HERE'S WHAT WE DID:
We switched the nut, customized the string tree, put on strings the other way round, drilled a hole into the shorter horn for the guitar strap, and adjusted the saddles for the right intonation.
The low action let's you play the double stops easily
Mates, try hard to play the high notes, especially everything above the 12th fret. But hey, Jimi did it! So yes, it is possible to master this. Trust yourself, be bold, and spread your fingers!
Fender produced the 'Stratocaster Artist Signature Serie - Jimi Hendrix Model'. Oh boy, what is that supposed to be?!? A reversed headstock, and that's about it? No offense, but that's wack. It doesn't even look right.
Sooooooooooo... If you want THIS Strat you would have to come up with a state-of-the-art argumentation. But let's say you found a left-handed Strat, and you want us to reverse and modify it for you, we will surrender. Or even better, we will help you and get the job done. In this case, you simply have to get in touch with us. And yes, we can find you some Hippie peace and weed stickers.
Please get in touch if you want to grab it!
Of course you can try it, with a tube amp and different effects, on our very own stage!
And if this is not enough, Alec switches on the stage lights for an even better feeling!
