After contacting numerous retailers I finally located a Mid-Missouri M-11 (all mahogany). #Pleased as punch I ordered it and it arrived yesterday. #Tuned her up and was very pleased with both the tone and the playability. #Craftsmanship was also excellent. #That's when I noticed I was having trouble telling which position I was in. #
Took a second look and sure enough it's got a backward (left-handed) neck on it. #Position markers and the 'Mid-MIssouri' side of headstock stamp are both on the bottom. #It makes me wonder if it came from the factory that way or if they restrung a lefty after I ordered it. #I won't mention the retailer (unless they don't handle it well) but I'm not really pleased.
Question: #The intonation at the 12th fret is about 1/4 step off (should be E is actually a slightly sharp D#). #Could this be due to a left-handed bridge (?) or do I just need to loosen the strings and adjust the bridge location?
We'll see what the shop says too, but I definitely want your second (and third) opinions.
Thanks for listening and advising,
