azad Posted September 26, 2014 Share Posted September 26, 2014 Hi guys/gals, I'm a begginer but used to dable upside down with a r/handed gtr played L/Handed just for fun. Now I am beggining to learn with proper L/Handed strung guitars and also Basses. I'm thinking of buying a Fender EC Twinolux amp for my first gtr amp.http://www.fender.com/en-AU/series/artist-signature/ec-twinolux-120v/ Also my main question is about my first electric guitar. I had my eye on a Fender 1952 USA Reissue Telecaster (LH) but was talked out of it by my guitar shop owner. He said that that neck on the reissue will prevent me from string bends because of the curvature and a modern neck would be so much better. He loves the tele 1952 but stated his concerns. The other thing he mentioned was that the bridge saddles on the 52 reissue may give me intonation problems if you are fussy like I am with intonation. Something along the lines of the saddle that holds the one wound string and the other un wound string would never be great with intonation for the wound and unwound string difference. It made sense what he said. He stated that if I got a modern neck and a different bridge with all the other USA 1952 bits as ussual that it would keep the same 1952 reissue sound but with better playability/feel and intonation. The site he mentioned was 'The Stratosphere).http://www.stratosphereparts.com/ They use all original USA parts if requested but are a little dear. He said he will put it together for me as a (L.Handed) model and it would be awesome. Better than a Fender custom shop according to him? Just wanted to know if any of you guys/ gals had any feedback or recommendations regarding this. I do want a great guitar. Thanks if anyone responds.
