Some manufacturers advertised widely (Guild, Gibson, Fender) but many more didn't and adverts are few and far between. Here are some of my favourite ads out of the ones i've seen.

LEFT HANDED FENDER Jazz Bass Harness Upgrade! CTS, Switchcraft, Orange Drop!

CONROE, TEXAS, 77305, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

$57

The sad truth is . that many left handed basses, even expensive ones use right handed pots! Why? Because most companies are to cheap to install the proper left handed pots that only cost a few dollars more. They also don't want to be bothered with the cost of reverse wiring for such a small percentage of the market. So what you might have is a great playing lefty with right handed electronics on board. The taper and control on the pots will be all wrong! Here is the solution . STARR GUITAR ... more

1967-1971 Fender Electric Guitar Case. Black Tolex, Orange Inside. Strat, Tele

$274

Travel back in time with this old Fender electric guitar case. Hard shell. Black Tolex exterior. Padded orange velvet interior. One of the three hinges is broken. The case wood where that hinge's fasteners went in is cracked so a repair is difficult. The other two hinges work fine.
