Post Lightweight Lefty Electric Guitars
Hi all,

I have recently injured my back, as opposed to my next guitar being a gibson 335 clone it looks like it might need to be something a little less unwieldy.

Ultimately I am looking for something a light as possible (have googled but the majority of the results are RH only).

Telecaster?

Might have trouble getting a lefty with 'buckers tho.

You'll no doubt look down at me patronisingly with sheer boredom in your eyes (and I know I keep going on about them), but how about a CV Squier :lol:

My Strat is stupidly lightweight, and the Teles are made of pine. The Strats are routed for humbuckers and I believe at least the neck pup on the Tele is the same, so they are eminently moddable.

I hear the GruvGear DuoStraps are great for shoulder/back pain.

Wait, I'm confused here; are we not considering hollowbodies? If not, what about a Hofner Shorty, which has the same scale neck as a Gibson?

I'm with Neal on this one. My friend has this Squier -

She's super-happy with it and I can vouch that's it very light, I've tried it myself. Well, it's light compared to my LP-style guitar, she almost fell down when I handed her mine :twisted:

Looks like it should be filled with potpourri! Maybe a lovely lavender scent? :lol:

I had an Epiphone LP100 a few years ago that was really light, almost toy-like
