I just relocated to southwest Florida, and I am still learning where things are.<br /> I found a Sam Ash yesterday, and of course I had to check it out. The selection of left handed guitars was limited (as usual), but they did have three that I have been lusting after.<br /> <br /> 1. Silver Burst Gibson Les Paul Studio 70's Tribute<br /> 2. Epiphone Casino<br /> 3. Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plus Top Pro (I owned one, but sold it)<br /> <br /> Of course, I don't have the money for any of them right now, which makes it worse!<br /> <br />

Anybody here have any experience, IRL face-to-face, with the folks at Jerry's Lefty Guitars?

Tony, I spent an afternoon at Jerry's when I was over in Florida two years ago. I had previously purchased my Collings 290 and Huss & Dalton OM Custom from Jerry.<br /> <br /> It's not what you might expect as it is a one man operation off the beaten track. However, he has a great little showroom, which if memory serves me right is about half the size of Southpaws..<br /> <br /> I was looking at dreadnoughts that day and played several Collings, Bourgeois, Huss & Daltons, and Larrivees. Had my eye on a Bourgeois until I got back home and found out that I needed to replace my HVAC.<br /> <br /> Check out these videos made by Shane of "In The Blues".

Well, my girlfriend, her grandson and I went to the Florida Aquarium and Tampa Museum of Art today. I did not know she also had a stop at a Sam Ash planned for us(me). They had at least a dozen left handed guitars, including three Les Paul Studio 70's Tributes, each in a different color scheme. She then shocked me by offering to front me the money if I found one I liked. As I mentioned, I have been out of work since March, but I just signed a contract to sell my house in Ohio. The closing date is next month. I ended up getting the 70's Tribute in Vintage Sunburst ($599).

LOL! All in good time. I didn't want to press my luck!<br /> My real worry is, I am only about 40 miles from Jerry's Lefty Guitars!

I'm about 15 miles from Southpaw Guitars, but no longer have a reason to shop there.
