Acquired 2nd hand, this guitar needed TLC : she came without case, with a crack in the headstock, the original pickguard was lost, the fretwire was worn...

After a careful restoration in Art-Deco style, including left-hand conversion, acetate custom-made pickguard, along with hardware change from gold to chrome, this G400 thanks me by sounding and looking great !

Interesting! I had no idea that they made a left-hand version of this.

This is not a “regular lefty” model, nor a special order, but a custom conversion to LH. I don’t know if the G400 had been factory-issued in LH.
