Yes, it's backwards. Hilarious. Gibson faded sg. Being a lefty, it's really hard to make decisions on buying guitars/basses as I don't get to try them first. And wanting to stick with short scale wasn't helping matters. But I just went for it and ordered. I'm glad I did. This thing fits me perfect, I mean perfect. Looks rad. Sounds rad(although I am playing through a 15 year old hartke b30, haha). Neck pickup sounds nice and deep. Actually can get a not terrible slap tone from the bridge pickup, though a little off balance. Neck dives a bit. I use a three inch neoprene strap and could feel it wanting to fall, totally manageable though. I might switch to some smaller lighter tuners eventually though. I dig the faded Ebony finish, definitely feels better than any gloss I've touched. On with the pictures.
