I have a left handed 1959 Country Gent reissue. I would like the arm to swing over the strings more - it stops too soon for my taste. On my 5420 I had my tech cut away the notch that stops the bar from moving and it worked just like I wanted it too. The problem is that the Gent has gold hardware and my tech said that he didn't want to cut the Gent bar down because he feels it would cause the gold to peel away. I understand so I didn't force him to do it. Anyone have any suggestions on another left handed arm in gold finish that would allow more upward movement?
