For years I had the feeling that I was alone in
being a lefthand bass-player. There were only a few left-handed basses for sale
in music magazines and absolutely no chance of finding my dream bass. So back in 1999
I started my web site "Arnis Lefthand Basses" to show my collection
of basses and to get in touch with other lefties.
Soon the web site began to grow and change. I was contacted by lefthanded bassplayers
from all over the world, and from these contacts the second-hand, left-handed
basses section developed. As the contents of
"Arnis Lefthand Basses" increased, the website evolved from a simply gallery
of lefthand basses to a meeting place for many lefthand bassplayers. To reflect
this new direction the name of the site was
changed to "Arnis Lefthand Bassplayer Community".
Here you will find contributions from hundreds of lefthand bassplayer from all over
the world. You can read about each of them in the list of lefty bassists. In
the secondhand section you will find a big collection of
interesting basses, most of which are offered for sale directly by members of this
community. Amongst the pages you will also find news from the lefty bass world,
info about manufacturers and
artisans who support leftys like us, and interviews/visit descriptions featuring custom
guitar builders and well-know lefty bassists.
Your support is important for this website and I need your help!
So if you are a left-handed bassplayer please, get in touch with me and join
this community. If you have a lefty bass to sell, send me a note. If you see
a news article, hear of any events featuring leftys, or hear of a
guitar maker supporting lefty basses, send me the details.
Since I first saw the film "The Kids Are Allright" (The Who / John Entwistle) the sight
of his uncountable collection of bass-guitars hanging on the walls of his home
filled me with the passion to collect left-handed
Ever since that day I have looked for these rare and exclusive of instruments, and
the search continues!!! So If you have a rare, interesting or just plain beautiful
instrument, please send me a photo and a description, even if you don´t want
to sell it. I would like to present it on this site for everyone to enjoy.
Since all the last year this website has become more and more to
a meeting point of lefthand bassplayers. If you like to get a overview of it, please
click on the rubric "lh-bassists".
I´m very gald of all the support and hope to get contact
to you in future, to present news and informations from the lefty bassplayer scene.
So far! Bye-bye and please contact me!
