A friend who was a lefty had a flash of inspiration and trimmed off part of the body on this (originally) right handed Fender J bass. Not too pretty but it worked and he played it that way for a while. He moved on and I ended up with the bass. I purchased a J Bass body and swapped the neck to make myself a righty. You can purchase a used Fender neck on eBay and a bridge and for a few hundred bucks have a Mexican J Bass. I toyed with the idea of tracing my righty and making a prosthetic piece to fit. Whoever buys this can trace mine for template. Then a couple of dowels and some wood glue and voila! Maybe not the prettiest but it should sound and play great!
