Looking to buy a Bouzouki. I am left handed and will have to convert any right handed instruments to a Lefty (which is fine) but it needs to be a floating bridge style. PM me if you have an instrument to cut loose!

You might have a look at the classifieds on Mandolin Cafe (specifically, the CBOM section). I have a Trinity College up there for sale, myself, and you can find that particular listing if you want. Here's the general one:

This is an old post so you have likely found your bouzouki and converted it to lefty, but I have often wondered why we left handers would want to. When I play a stringed instrument my left hand does much of the creative decision making work while my right is often just strumming or bowing. I think this might give left handers an edge, at least in most ITM settings. Even most bluegrass banjo players have a relatively stable finger picking pattern on the right hand, while the left is going up and down the neck all over the place.

Of course if you have already gone down the road of left handed string playing these thoughts will be useless to you... But just in case...
