  2. Well, that's not your typical lefty, either.

    It's a V63 which costs quite a bit more than a typical 4003.

    Now, if you'd said, mourn for lefties who want a V63... sure.

    I agree. I am a leftie and I mourn that i can't have that bass . . . because I play right-handed :bag:

    Rare or not that price is way inflated.

    Rick market value has gone through the roof in recent years, and scarcity has only made it worse since Rick has no intentions of making lefties anymore. :spit:
  8. sucks to be a lefty.

    It's true, it's a bit rarer than your average uber rare lefty Rick, but that price is still way out there. You won't see a normal lefty Rick for less than $3k anywhere. If you see one somewhere besides Ebay you're pretty dang lucky. I've never seen one in real life.

    Are you serious? You're actually bass ambidextrous?

    I've often thought of giving it a try (I play righty, and would like to give lefty a shot). Lots of people switch from righty to lefty on other things (pitching, batting, boxing), so I would certainly imagine that it's doable.

    I'd give it a real shot if I had a lefty bass around here. I bet the exercise would be great for "thinking out of the box", and would probably help with dexterity, as well.

    I'm bass ambidextrous too. I'm uncoordinated with both hands.
