    Why yes, this DOES deserve three question marks. Anyway, my current gear is a Dean Edge 09 lefty. However I'm looking to upgrade. BUT I don't like the options for lefties because it goes from 3 beginners to 1 one intermediate to about 6 pros. Here's the problem: I don't want another beginner, I don't like the few intermediates, and I can't afford a pro. (My budget's about 0.99-350) However I know that within this price range there are several right handed basses. So, I could play a reversed, upside down bass. My question is this: Is it a good idea? Or do I remain unsatified and buy something I won't like?

    Flip the nut, (and saddles on some basses) and play to your heart's content.

    I'm a lefty, and take it from me it, it sucks. Biggest thing is the controls get in the way.
    For upgrading, always look for used stuff. There is a lot more in your price range then you may think, Squier, rockbass, peavey, if you shop used there's even more. I buy alot from ebay.

    Keep an eye on ebay fo a USA Peavey Foundation. Leftys show up occasionly for around the $350 range.

    If I were lefty and I am, I'd play right handed basses AND I DO!!!! (as if I were right handed, not backwards or anything)
