Dear TB mates, Recently, I came across some windfall cash - quite a bit, actually. Deciding that I really wanted a top-end bass, as you would, I did the shop around. Now, let me fill you in by telling you that I'm a lefty. Bout 12% of the population are, anyway. Could I find a top end bass that fitted my cravings?? Well, yes, but the only bass that came in a lefty that I wanted was a MM Stingray 5, so I spent my dollars on it. What I'm dark about is that I really would have laid out more cash for a Geddy Lee Fender, or even a Fender 5 string Jazz. However, the knobs at Fender don't make them - letting down another side of the market. Really, does it take that much to reverse the machinery and offer a really top quality left-hander?? Obviously not for MM. I'm sure that my Stingray will keep me boning up for ages, but its a huge BOO to those large manufacturers who omit lefties!!
