  • Lefty friendly guitar shops.

    There are shops out there who are more open and ready to serve us as a community. If you know of one, local, national, or international, list it and I'll add it to the list.

    The two big ones right off of the top of my head are:

    Drum City Guitar Land
    Adirondack Guitars Dennis is a helluva guy.
    Lefty Guitars.be
    Folkway Music
    Jerry's Lefty Guitars
    Southpaw Guitars
    Rondo
    Quite possibly the greatest lefty shop in the world, if not all of Europe.

    Folkway Music. The owner is a lefty. He usually has one or two very interesting models for sale. Check out the lefty Martin hollow body when you scroll down that list.

          Well the obvious hasn't been mentioned yet, and I suspect it's because some people have had mixed experiences with them, but there's www.southpawguitars.com. I've bought a few guitars from them over the years without any issues, and while they're not the cheapest guys around they do have stock that no one else has.

          There's also http://www.drumcityguitarland.com/dr...s/1/index.aspx and www.jerrysleftyguitars.com/

            www.rondomusic.com

            They have quite a selection of lefties by SX, Douglas, Agile and others. I saw a righty Agile Les Paul come through the place I work and it was pretty damn nice.

                  Ive dealt with red planet guitars and actually purchased 3 guitars from them, the guy was nice a gave me a deal on shipping, and they arrived promtly with little damage (due to handling, it wasn't his fault) but the quality of the guitars wasn't great at all. I was going to use them as build projects but I soon realized that it was not worth the time, effort, or cost I was willing to invest in them.

                      the European Lefty shop

                      Let me bring this brick to the wall :

                      http://www.californiamusic.fr/magasi...gaucher-1.html

                      California Music : 4 shops in Paris. One of them is the only 100% dedicated to bass guitars (includes LH), the other (this link) is the only 100% dedicated to lefties in the whole country, and one of the very few in continental Europe. People from several neighbour countries often take a train just to shop there. That's where I bought almost all my guitars and where I've re-sold some too.

                        has anyone tried or own any of these? http://www.ravenwestguitar.com/elguit.html I'm really wondering how these guitars are.

                          I bought one of these on ebay several years ago. Not a bad guitar in general, my main issue with it was the tremolo unit, which wouldn't stay in tune, and the strings kept sliding out of the saddles no matter how tight the saddle blocks were, LOL.

                              I've owned two of these. I really liked them both. One was a six string with the locking trem. I liked it, but the pickups were pretty weak. The other was a 12 string that was really cool.
