About a month after scoring a lefty Pacer Custom body I have been dedicated to completing the proper build. Thanks to 2112 for the neck and KramerRoy for the time specific Schaller pickups and I am off to a good start.

Still contemplating a professional body refinishing or taking a chance on a DIY. Definitely gold Floyd/ jack/ knobs/ tuners. Moving forward.

Looks good :thumbs I'd re-logo the headstock for a lefty as well, then it'll look perfect.

Block logo only.
Pyramid logo doesn't have enough space.

Correct. Small block logo. Have not seen a lefty pyramid logo (small K).

Looks awesome so far!
Im currently building an NOS flip/flop Pink Imperial, and I got a reverse/righty maple for mine. Still need to find an old zebra 59 or a zebra fullshred neck to pair up with the vintage zebra fullshred I got for the bridge, but its coming along really good. Im using all vintage era correct parts for it which is what slowed the process.

Nice to see some other lefties on here.

I forgot to mention that I originally had a righty/reverse rosewood that I repainted and had my buddy resize some pyramid american logos for me and I used one of those on it.
It fits really nice and looks awesome, but also looks odd if you stare at it because they never used them on lefties or a reverse as far as I know...
The maple will be getting a block logo...

They are gold vinyl, but i have a ton of them, so if youre interested for your project holla holla and Ill send you some.
