1. The nut:
The nut needs to be adapted to the different string thicknesses. The grooves in which the strings rest have been adapted to the diameters of the individual strings.
2. Bridge and compensation:
The fact that the strings stretch when they're pressed down on to the frets and the desired note consequently possesses a slightly higher frequency means that the strings must be stretched slightly in relation to the calculated scale (compensation). Due to their greater mass, bass strings always need to be positioned higher (distance between string and fret) than the treble strings. This means that bass strings are stretched more. To accommodate for this, the bone bridge insert on our guitars is not fitted straight but possesses a slight inclination. The guitar's fret intonation would no longer be perfect if the strings were simply switched around. That's why different bridges must be used on guitars for left-handed players.
3. The bracing:
Our symmetrical bracing systems do not need to be modified. But asymmetrical soundboard bracing systems are reversed on left-handed instruments.
