My company band needs some more panache. I’m the bassist because nobody else wants to
I have a decent red Harley Benton lefty bass but for entertainment purposes, I want to get a low cost flying v bass somewhere.
I’m not planning on whipping out a couple of thousands on a lefty custom Gibson or something and it could be a cheap conversion “project” guitar (albeit, done by somebody else because I don’t even halve a soldering iron)
Who helps me find or create a platform for this?
Flying V shape
Ability to attach strap as it is for show purposes
Lefty or converted to lefty. Can be very crude, covered up with tape, stickers etc
Control: Volume knob is all I need
Staying in tune half a show is a plus
Is somebody in Europe main land in the game to help me with this?
Even though it’s a grungy little project, This costs time and money; which I am willing to spend within reasonable fork.
I was kind of hoping to team up from somebody from the community for this in the first place.
Let me know if you got any good suggestions on purchases, online finds or project ideas. Up till now, Google didn’t render too much useful
The Flying V is a very symmetrical guitar. Couldn’t you buy an epiphone like the one below and just swap out the nut and reintonate the bridge? The knob position may or may not be a problem. The korina is a short scale.
Buy a kit. If your good with a drill and router you might even be able to convert it to a lefty since it doesn’t seem to have a pickguard.
