If any of you lefties want to sample the lawsuit Takamine -- Garcia used one on the Warfield and Radio City runs -- here's your chance. It's not mine, and I'll keep my real Martin :shock:

For years when I was a kid, I thought Jerry played lefty because I had a poster of him that had him lefty. I play lefty, and was pleased to be in such good company...until I found out.
And just remember that this was before mammals ruled the earth and there was no interwebs...

I'm a lefty who got the humor! :lol:

I bought a lefty Takamine a few months ago- EG530SC-LH. A big step up from my 1970's bottom-end Yamaha. I think in the Dead Gear book it say's Jerry bought the Takamine because it was one of the only electrified acoustics available at that time?

A picture of a tongue in a cheek would be most fitting.
