After 33 years of doing this professionally I was hit by something I've never even thought about. My band hosts a weekly jam at a local club. One of our regular jammers is a lefty bassist and brought his Carvin LB 5 string. There was another lefty bassist that didn't have a bass and our regular graciously let him play his Carvin. In setting him up on my rig I turned his volume all the way up to set his gain, but I couldn't get any sound at first. Long story short: Since it was a lefty bass I turned the volume totally counter-clockwise, only to realize the pot had to be totally clockwise just like on a righty bass. I had never realized or even contemplated this before. Are there no counter-clockwise pots for lefty instruments? Is this a Carvin thing or are lefty instruments commonly set up like this? Does/would this feel intuatively wrong to left handed players (who actually play left handed)?
