    I haven't heard any news about it either way. Although it might be possible that the fake guitar that has 6 buttons for each fret might have a setting to be used left handed. IDK for sure though.

    Either way I'm pretty excited about the move to more realistic instruments, specifically the drums. I just want symbols!

    Well, they needed some strong innovation for those guys. There you have it, will be both for normal players *wave hand* but also for people that want it to be much harder. So I'm pretty happy with the change to be honest. :)

    I'd be very surprised if they did a lefty version, but you could always do a Hendrix and restring it. ;)

    I'll try to upload a video of my buddy trying one at E3 tomorrow...Seemed pretty cool. He is a musician though and said it was still really difficult to play the game (it wasn't Rockband though)....

    if that was my only option then i would definitely do it...but my only concern is that apparently they built some kind of sensors (the fender squier version) into the neck to tell the game where your fingers are fretting so if i do get it restrung i doubt i could also change the settings or arrangement of those sensors

    Oh yeah, good point. It did look like the sensors were on the underside of the neck on a video I saw. Fingers crossed they do a lefty version, maybe on special order direct, rather than in stores. Could be more expensive.

    I'm intrigued now and want to know the answer myself. Will keep an eye out.
