Would it be difficult to convert a Lefty acoustic guitar to a righty? It is a cutaway Ovation. I have noticed that they are a lot cheaper on eBay and thought if Hendrix could do it why can't I! 8)

Thanks

I think youd run into some problems.

- wouldn't the cutaway be on the wrong side now?

- The nut is cut to fit the strings from thicker---->thinner, you will have to reverse it.

-The same goes for the bridge, you will need to rearrange the saddles.

I think it's too much work, as you can pick up a new righty guitar, it will be another excuse for you to add another guitar to the collection 8)
