    So I have a project in mind but have no idea how to go about it. What I would like to do is to get hold of an unfinished body and have my sister, who is a phenomenal artist, paint it up for me. i'm fairly certain that I could do the wiring and setup that comes after that, but my problem comes from the get-go. I have neither the tools nor the skill in woodworking to build my own blank body, and so far I've found exactly zero places online that sell lefty body blanks. Is there some secret luthier's lair that I'm missing, or is there just not enough demand for lefty instruments for people to bother making them? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    USA Custom guitars, Allparts, B. Heffner all offer lefthanded parts.
    On the inexpensive end Rondo Music usually has lefty Jazz bass bodies and from time to time lefty necks.

    Keep an eye on ebay as well.
