I have a 4001c64 FG Left-Handed bass on order?
Would Mr.Hall or Ben give me an idea if and when these
will go into production? Thanks.

I've had two FG C64s on order at South Paw for a while now.

The last time I asked JH about the progress on these, he said they that had finished the lefty CNC programming on the lefty C basses, which would speed things up because the first two or three batches they made, the body wings were still being cut by hand. Even regular righty stuff has been slow from what I've been hearing from some dealers out there.

With a 400 and something day back log in production, it's going to be a waiting game for most of us. That's a lot of effing guitars on order.

.....And little Johnny smiled, and looked toward the North Pole....in the hopes that St. Nick would get his bass to him before Christmas Day.

Johnny's Dad looked at him and said, firmly,

"Well, at least you won't shoot your eye out with a Rickenbacker bass....."

All lefties, and in fact anything with options such as different than standard pickups, vibratos . . . anything besides vanilla guitars are very slow right now.

Hi- I asked this question 5 weeks ago. It was answered.
Since then 5 weeks have past, can you again update me on the production
status of Model# 4001c64 FG LH?
Any info would be much appreciated.

hi guys im waiting on a 4003 mg lefty with right handed strings. i was told xmas 2006 by john hall 2 wks ago. it's hard for me to believe that installing a right handed saddle and a right handed nut would take so lonnnnnnng. But im a good boy, I will wait on my 1st lefty. I have two righties that i play upside down. Damn those knobs keep getting in the way.:)

Southpaw does the RH stringing in-shop, they've always done a good job for me.

Apparently the next batch of lefty FG C64's will also sport the 'new' Fireglo, a thinner finish which resembles more of what the '64 finishes look like today....Very cool and a plus IMHO. I really look forward to getting mine.
