For left-handed guitars, does it matter if the SP-1/HP-1 magnetic soundhole mounting pickup points to the fingerboard or bridge when positioned in the soundhole?

For the left-handed guitarists we always recommend to experiment and try it both ways — the standard way toward the fingerboard and the opposite position toward the bridge. The sound of the pickup depends on a variety of factors, like the position in comparison to the soundhole, and the distance between the strings and the magnets. In that regard, if you need to slightly change the distance between strings and magnets you can add a few pieces of paper as shims between the top of the guitar and the pickup. You can do one side or both sides of the pickup to find the best sound.
