    Hey

    I was wondering you guys would know anything about left flipping a Epiphone Thunderbird classic iv pro. I'm happy dealing with everything being upside down the only thing I have wonders about is how can I go about flipping the nut and bridge. I would be also happy if you could recommend a bass that gives the same tone as a T Bird
    Thanks in advance.
     
  2. Hi.

    Welcome to TalkBass Elite nacho.

    The bridge is easy, just move the saddles on their respective strings.

    You have to carve a new nut or have it carved in shop.

    Carving a new nut is very easy, almost all materials are good for practise, and drill-bits wrapped in emery paper/cloth are more than decent substitutes for saddle files.

    I prefer Graphtech plastic nuts, but choose whatever material You prefer.

    Regards
    Sam
