What do Jimmy Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Paul McCartney and Tommy Iomi have in common? They’re all left-handed guitar players, so if you fall into the same category, you’re in good company. Jimmy Hendrix is famous for flipping right-handed Fender Stratocasters, but with our selection, you’ll find exactly what you need.
Our left-handed electric guitars come from the world’s top manufacturers, with instruments from Gibson, Gretsch, Fender, Ibanez, Squier and many more. There are so many options to choose from, we’ve included filters so you can narrow down your search by brand, price, body shape and number of strings. You can also choose between solid body and hollow body left handed electric guitars. Your axe is an extension of your personality, so colour is likely to come into your decision making process. You’ll find an array of shades, from Epiphone’s Bourbon Burst to Charvel’ s Shell Pink.
The easiest way to tell if a guitar is left-handed is by holding it vertically and identifying which side the thickest string is on. If it’s on the right, the guitar you’re holding is a left-handed electric guitar.
Everyone has to start somewhere, so don’t be shy about asking questions of our friendly expert staff. If you’re shopping online, you can use the chat function to ask questions about the difference in set-up, and what to expect when you start playing guitar with your left hand. If you’re a beginner, you might want to try a right-handed electric guitar too, just to feel the difference. The most important thing is that you’re comfortable, and that’ll contribute to better technique. The design and structure of left-handed electric guitars often takes more time and money to craft and construct.
The good news is, left-handed electric guitars use the exact same accessories as right-handed instruments. That means you’ll have access to the full range of accessories needed for gigging, jamming at home or getting your practice on.
Sky Music does offer guitar restringing, service and repairs, so check in to see if our service is available. If you’re more a DIY kind of person, pick up a Body and Fingerboard Cleaning Kit from Jim Dunlop or an Instrument Cleaning Kit fromd’Addario.
We take the best care when packaging and shipping your left-handed guitar to ensure it arrives in perfect condition, but the occasional bump might happen when it’s on the road. If your instrument isn’t in pristine condition when it arrives, let us know so we can take care of it.
