Left Handed models
Replacing, or in some cases upgrading your offset guitar's wiring may be a matter of necessity if there are niggling faults perhaps, but you may also have considered replacing it as a way of improving the guitar. So, the big question of course is would it make any difference?
I wrote quite an extensive article talking about the details about guitar wiring and how/why it can make an improvement to your guitar. To read more on this feature, visit the full blog post HERE!
The Signature Series
My pre-wired harnesses have been part of my product range since the very early days of the Home of Tone in 2015, and I've loved further developing them over the past few years. Further refining via your great feedback and requests, along with my own research and preferences. This has lead me to release the signature series.

Left Handed wiring?
After speaking with a number of left handed players to get a feel for their requirements and preferences, it became quickly apparent that there really is no 'standard' spec when it comes to what manufacturers use in new left handed instruments, nor was there a preferred choice by players either when it comes to which pots to use aftermarket. It's easy for right handed players like myself to take it for granted, that if we head to a shop and pick up a guitar, we know how the pots will function in terms of their turn direction, there is an industry standard that seldom deviates. But something as simple as which way the pots work just isn't the same for left handed players, and I think these manufacturer inconsistencies are perhaps in part to blame for the vague nature of the information out there.
So I have wanted to share some of my findings, not for educating right handed players, although a bit of awareness never goes amiss, but mainly to help guide left handed players that are perhaps shopping for a new guitar, or looking to modify their existing guitars and weren't sure of what parts to choose.
I have written an indepth article about wiring of left handed guitars, it contains some really useful information about the pots used and what differences it makes so if you're not sure which spec to order as a left handed player, the article should help you decide on the 'right' spec for you.
