Hi everyone, i'm new to the forum so forgive me if I opened this thread in wrong place but.. I've just started bass a few months ago, I'm a lefty, my musician friend told me to buy a right-handed guitar and reverse the strings until I get the hang of it, so I bought a Cort Action A really cheap, and I'm playing like this for the past months, but as I progress it became really problematic, I can't reach beyond 12th fret because of the strap and etc. So I'm in a market for a new bass but my options are extremely limited(because of where I live), in my budget I can get a Schecter omen 5 LH, cort b4lh, and Ibanez sr300l but there is another option, which is to buy an Epiphone thunderbird classic(the one with Gibson pickups) and just reverse the strings on that one. Judging by the strap lock locations I think I should be comfortable enough to play it, but I don't know if reverse strings would affect the sound that much. TL;DR: Would reversing strings on a Thunderbird change it's sound drastically?
