Left handed guitars might not seem all that unusual to us today, but considering that left handers have been discriminated against throughout history, the left handed community will applaud their availability. Left handers were once burned at the stake or called "abnormal" and traditionally a left handed person was forced to learn to play instruments designed by and for right handed people. If you're right handed and you've ever tried to perform tasks with only your left hand, you know just how difficult this can be.

High Quality Left Handed Guitars

Virtually every quality guitar maker now makes left handed versions of its products. There is no longer a reason for left handed musicians to feel disadvantaged. Left handed guitars are just as affordable and as well made as their right handed counterparts. Whether you're a leftie just learning guitar, or one who had to learn to play a right handed instrument, pick up a left handed guitar and see how much fun music can be!

Washburn is one example of a company that makes high quality guitars for either handed individuals. Righties and lefties both have found Washburn guitars to be one of the best makers of guitars in the industry. Washburn's signature Dreadnought style comes in both left and right handed varieties. They have solid construction and are extremely playable.

Left handed guitars, just like their right handed cousins, come in a range of styles, colors, and prices. Look for the one that's right for you. You'll find electric, acoustic, and bass guitars in a style that's right for you and one that fits your budget.
