I had an Ibanez guitar several years ago, it was modeled after a Gibson Hummingbird. It was a great playing guitar, but not loud enough for the bluegrass that I was into at the time, I gave it to my brother when I bought my Guild. The Squier Strat should be a good guitar also, what kind of amp are you getting to go with it ? (I have a Hughes and Kettner and a Peavey Studio 112 , also a mess of effects pedals )
I hope you can find one that pleases you , and isn't too hard on the budget. One of these days I'm gonna post photo's of my guitars. Right now I'm heavy on electrics (3- counting the bass) and only 1 acoustic. I'm thinking of picking up another acoustic, probably an Epiphone or Yamaha, that I can keep in a different tuning all the time, so I don't have to keep re-tuning my Guild ( hard on the strings, and I'm too lazy!!)
I guess you're stuck with having to buy a guitar designed for a "lefty".They are available by many manufacturers, but may be more expensive (in some cases ) so it depends on how much you want to spend...I wish you success..
Some left handed players re-string their guitars in reverse, ( low "E" string on bottom and so on from there and flip the guitar over ) but there are some other technical issues to consider such as, the string notches in the nut. You may be able to get a friend, or music store to help if you consider this move. Good luck...
Welcome to our group. There are a lot of interesting people to get to know here... The main thing is to have fun and enjoy what you do... ( By the way, is that a guitar from " Musician's Friend" in Medford, Oregon?)
