Paul McCartney of The Beatles, Paul Wilson of Snow Patrol, Ed Gagliardi of Foreigner and Robbie Merrell of Godsmack all rocked out on left handed bass guitars when writing their greatest pieces of music. The epic music they made can be attributed to having instruments made to accommodate their orientation.
Sky Music has gathered together a collection of the best left handed bass guitars in Melbourne, Australia. You’ll find instruments crafted by the world’s greatest and most experienced manufacturers: Fender, Squier, Epiphone and Ibanez among others. These have been hand-selected by our team of experts to accommodate a range of skill levels, from beginner to pro, from bedroom basher to those hitting the road to play live gigs. In addition to the 4-string basses, you’ll find 5-string basses to hammer those lower notes and get more range from the wider fretboard.
Bass guitar is the anchoring sound of rock, pop, country, jazz fusion and many more styles of music. Before you embark on your bass-buying journey, decide what kind of music you want to be playing. That’ll narrow down your choices and help our friendly experts to help you.
If you’re looking for a softer sound to complement stripped-back performances, consider trying out a left handed acoustic bass guitar. To bring out the rhythmic and harmonic function of the bass, with or without the stage jumps performed by Flea of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, consider the Ibanez SR or for a more jazzy sound, try your hand at a Fender Player Jazz instrument. Of course, both are designed for your dominant hand. For throwback style, opt for a Squier Classic Vibe 60s, with its 1960s inspired details.
When you buy a left handed bass guitar in Australia, it’s a good idea to load up on the essentials while you’re at it. If you ask our experts, they’ll say you can never have too many accessories. Our line-up of bass guitar accessories includes:
