That's quite an achievement....I have a lefty friend who learned to play a right-handed guitar upside down.

well I didn't realize the difference between playing lefthanded and righthanded when I first got a guitar. I was only 11 or 12....it wasn't until I was playing air guitar and realized I did it totally differently from when I was holding my guitar trying to play that I realized something was wrong. So I went to the local music shop and told them what was going on, and they said they could restring my guitar no problem

My friend has a left-handed Ibanez. Did'nt Hendrix string a right-handed Fender upside-down? Someone probably already mentioned that.

he did. He also played a flying V at least once in concert, and I believe I also have seen footage of him on an SG, but the upside-down strat is the guitar he's most known for playing

yeah, we covered that. I can play a few songs strung righty...it's easier to play single note lines than chords that way

No....I'm playin' guitar for years and I'm still not sure about tubes and stuff! I know tubes give amps a warmer, more rounded tone. Non-tube amps use valves, don't they?

I actually got a Tele and a Vox amp because Frank used 'em in the Pixies (Marshall amps,too) and I'm sure he still uses Telecasters, at least....I believe he loves those little Piggyback amps.

Can't remember the wattage, it's kinda medium size...not a small practice amp, and not a big 'un!

I'm sorry to make you do so much work...I'm just curious about the amp, since I've always had a strange attraction to Vox amps.....and ugly women
