    Hi all,

    I just realized squire-talk is a forum I should have joined long ago, so I remedied that. I would say I have 5-1/2 Squiers, and now have to explain that. Being a lefty and liking offsets, when I wanted a Jazzmaster, I couldn't find one. So one of my Squiers is made up of parts from a righty Jazzmaster, Lollar pickups, and a Warmoth body:

    That is the 1/2 Squier. My other Squiers are 1 Affinity Tele, 1 Classic Vibe 50's Strat, and 3 Classic Vibe 50's Teles (I went nuts over that model). I modded one of the CV 50's Teles, giving it a 4-way switch that adds series wiring, and made it a custom pickguard. That one became my living room guitar, for noodling and writing. Enough about me, I'm going to start reading the forum I've been missing!

    Excellent, BatUtilityBelt, and Nice Lefty JM "custom" ! Welcome Lefty Mate !

    My only Lefty Squier is my modded Std Strat 2005 :

    Apart Strats and Tele in black, white and sunburst, sometimes red, Squier has a poor offering for us Lefties... :(

    So like you, I built my "Custom Lefty" models or make my mods myself, but sorry, it's not often Squier... :oops:

    My 2 "Fake Lefty Danelectro", one built from Scratch, the other built from Trash :

    One of my 2 Harley Benton MS60LH-VW "Mustang-Tornado-Custom modified" :

    And her set of direct-swappable pickguards :

    Other family photos of my more or less "Custom Modified" Lefties :

    My Squier 2005 modded, my 2 Fake Danos LH, my venerable 1980 Gibson ES-335TD :

    Latest addition : a Gretsch G5220LH on which I installed a Bigsby B3LH :

    Awesome group of lefties there! I have a bunch of non-squiers too, but thought I'd be safe opening with the Squiers. Great to meet another lefty!

    Doesn't matter. Glad to have you here.

    Been hanging out on the Agile Guitar Forum a couple lefty forums, and a few others, but somehow missed squier-talk. Glad I finally found it.

    Whatever you'd like to know. I plan to keep 2 of the Classic Vibes completely original. The others will be mod platforms, though they're already great. The Affinity will get the most drastic changes - I don't like the neck or pickups as much on that one.
