Lefty Englehardt ES1 for $400?
This is my first time on the DB side, so go easy on me! I know of a lefty Englehardt ES1 available, supposedly in good condition, for somewhere between 3 and 4 bills.
Assuming it's a good fit, and checks out with a luthier, should I jump on this? I have seen reservations expressed about the neck profile on Engles, and they don't seem to be highly regarded here, but I've only done my initial research so far. Please tell me if I'm even in a good ballpark here.
I had always assumed that if I were going to start doubling, I'd either have to pay through the nose to find a lefty, or learn right-handed (which didn't work out for me at *all* on the electric, so let's not go there). I am excited about this opportunity to learn a beautiful new instrument, but don't want to let it cloud my judgement. Please advise! And thank you, from a DB newbie-hopeful...
