    I'm not convinced that there really is a 'natural' lefty. The way you learn to do something initially has way bigger impact than anything else as far as right/left goes in my opinion. I play hockey right, write right, skateboard and snowboard goofy, box right handed, wrestle left handed, and play guitar right handed.

When the movements to be learned are still alien and new to both hands anyways, I really see no risk or extra obstacle in learning it in a way that will have major benefits in the long run.

    Payment sent. Looks so beautiful. Great configuration and really nice woods and finish. I'm sooo psyche'd! Can't wait to play it. Thank you so much! (There's a heap of NGD's on the way.)
