Left Handed Bass Guitars

Are there any notable artists or bands known for using left-handed bass guitars in their music?

Yes, several notable musicians are known for their mastery of the left-handed bass guitar. Perhaps the most iconic is Paul McCartney of The Beatles, who played a Höfner violin bass in his distinctive left-handed style. Similarly, James LoMenzo, who has performed with bands like Megadeth and White Lion, is a well-known left-handed bassist. Jimmy Haslip, a founding member of the jazz fusion group Yellowjackets, is another recognized left-handed player who played a right-handed bass strung in reverse. These artists have made significant contributions to music and continue to inspire left-handed bassists around the world.

Can I restring a right-handed bass guitar to use it as a left-handed instrument?

Yes, it's possible to restring a right-handed bass guitar for left-handed playing, but it's not always ideal. While restringing can work in a pinch, the guitar's design aspects—like the position of the cutaway, control knobs, pickup switch, and the nut's setup—may not be suited for left-handed play. Additionally, any asymmetry in the body or neck design could affect comfort and playability. If you're a left-handed player, it's usually best to invest in a bass guitar specifically designed for left-handed use to ensure optimal performance and ease of play.
