Turning a left handed Cobain Jag to a righty


Recommended Posts

Haven't posted here for a while.

But i'm back with a question:

I can order a MIM Cobain Jag left handed. What would it take to make it playable for a right handed person?

Do i only have to reverse/or change the nut, strings and intonation etc. Or is there more to it then meets the eye?

The bridge doesn't seem to be angled or anything like that.

I was thinking about getting a lefty because i already have a right handed Jag and really like the reverse look of a left handed model. (aká Super Sonic style)

You would need to add another strap knob on the lower horn and restring and intonate it. It would be best to get a new nut cut correctly for the strings being flipped. Otherwise it should be all good.

Thanks for your help! I will order one soon. But it will take a while before they have one in stock.

thomann.de says they expect them to be in stock on: 06.02.2012

musicstore.de says they expect them to be in stock on: 18.04.2012 (right handed model on: 15.06.2012) Which takes even longer.

I can't find a single online store here in Holland that has one in stock. I will keep looking for a few days to see if they have one somewhere, otherwise i shall order one from thomann is guess.

Thanks again!
