King was a left-handed "upside-down/backwards" guitarist. He was left-handed, but usually played right-handed guitars flipped over upside-down so the low E string was on the bottom. In later years he played a custom-made guitar that was basically left-handed, but had the strings reversed (as he was used to playing). He also used very unorthodox tunings (i.e., tuning as low as C to allow him to make sweeping string bends). A "less is more" type Blues player, he was known for his expressive "bending" of notes, a technique characteristic of blues guitarists. Jimi Hendrix also played a right handed guitar restrung to standard guitar setup (low E on top).
