NGOD = New Guitar Order Day <br /> <br /> But I won't see it for around 16 weeks/3-4 months! That's the quoted build time for an order they don't have in stock. They did have a couple lefties in stock, but not in the color (Amber) that I wanted. <br /> <br /> I ordered a left-handed X-20 Artisan 6-string in Amber with the Anthem pickup upgrade, and also upgraded to receive the hardshell case (standard) and the gigbag (optional add-on for this model). <br /> <br /> Everything else is standard specs: 25.5" scale length, 1 3/4" nut, Gotoh 510 tuners, all carbon fiber (I decided against the "wood top" option - which seems a little steep to me at $450!).<br /> <br /> Here's a pic of an Amber X-20 lefty:<br />

Several more pics in profile - here's one more showing the carbon fiber close up.

What's the purpose of the scalloped area on the upper bout? It looks odd to me.

It looks like someone took a bite out of it. :)<br />

" It looks like someone took a bite out of it. :) "<br /> <br /> Yeah, from some angles it looks weird, but it's really a cool design along with the cutaway and the angle of the body behind the neck making room for your hand...then there's the arm bevel on the lower bout. All very well thought out.<br /> <br /> The placement of the soundhole there doesn't seem to hurt the tone...

Unplugged, it sounds reminiscent of a resonator.
