Here is a left handed Gretsch Duo Jet with a Bigsby. The tailpiece was mounted slightly off so it pulled the strings towards the bass side of the fingerboard. The floating bridge was double stick taped down, but had shifted over. I ended up shimming the Bigsby tailpiece to better center the strings down the neck and the bridge was remounted as well.

Here's a left handed 2003 Fender Deluxe Strat body with a 2012 Custom Shop neck. This came in with a very high neck set over the body. The Micro Tilt screw in the neck pocket was engaged which allows you to quickly dial in the neck angle if necessary. I am not a fan of the Micro Tilt as it is a single screw that pushes up the rear of the neck and acts as a single-point shim. The better alternative is to use a traditional wood shim with as much contact in the joint as possible. This guitar did not require the neck to be shimmed as I backed off of the Micro Tilt and dropped the bridge down. Lefties are always a trip to play test!
