Out of curiosity, how much would it cost to have a righty guitar switched to a left handed setup?

Would the Strat Standard be worth looking into?

Hello all,

I'm shopping for a new guitar (my price cap is ~$700, but lower is always better big_smile ) and I need some advice. I generally play older rock -- Beatles type stuff.

Now, my caveat is that I'm a lefty. I'm also limited to what I can get via Guitar Center. As you can see here, their lefty electric selection leaves a lot to be desired.

I had been looking at the Epi LP Custom or the Epi Sheraton. However, the Sheri's lacking of fret markers above 15 and it's relatively jazzy sound makes me think it may not be too suitable for me.

Recently, someone also recommended I take a look at the Fender Standard Tele. I've also noticed that GC has recently added the Hagstrom Swede, and have heard some good-ish things about that.

Now, Guitar Center is about 3 hours away from here and I'd really rather not make the trip until I have some idea of what I'd like to check out (they've told me they'll order two or three guitars for me to play with if I tell them what I'd like to try, as they don't deal with too many Southpaws).

So, my question is this: what's your advice for this? I basically need to be able to narrow it down to a few.

Thanks all!
