    I'm not even left handed.... this came up in the classifieds a week ago, and I saved the picture... I don't have money, I don't play octave (due to the money thing) and I'm not left handed, but seeing this I immediately wanted it. And usually the look of lefty F styles creeps me out.... oh well, I guess that's mas for you (sigh)

    Just play it facing a mirror and you're good to go!
    It ain't gotta be perfect, as long as it's perfect enough!

    That may be so, but in the ad it was marked as a custom Eastman 315 I think
