Left Handed Guitar World

Left Handed Guitar Shops by Location

Left Handed Guitar Shops by Location

Here is a full list of all of the dedicated left-handed guitar shops in the World by location.  The stores on this list only sell left-handed guitars, basses, and mandolins.  If you are a left-handed guitarist, you’ll get a kick out of these shops if you have never been to one before.  I have added a google maps reference for each of the physical shops so you can easily find where to go.  This list will be updated as new shops emerge around the World.

 

USA

The United States of America has many amazing left-handed guitar shops.    One of the best things about each of these stores is they specialize in different brands and different styles.  Each store has something unique and exciting to offer.

 


Southpaw Guitars – The Original Left-Handed Guitar Shop

Website – Southpaw Guitars

All of the shops on this list have Southpaw Guitars to thank for their inspiration.  Jimmy, the owner of Southpaw guitars, is a lovely guy and is the pioneer of the left-handed guitar shops around the World. Jimmy started his business back in 1980, and it has been a staple of the left-handed guitar scene ever since. I have spoken with Jimmy several times, and it’s always been a pleasure. Southpaw guitars offer a vast amount of brands, including Fender, G&L, Heritage, Ibanez, and many more.

Southpaw also carries in custom orders such as left-handed Fender signature guitars that are not available in any other shop.  This approach helps separate what he does from every regular shop in the World. If you find yourself in Houston, Texas, this shop is well worth a visit!

Jerry’s Lefty Guitars

Website – Jerry’s Lefty Guitars

Jerry’s Lefty Guitars is located in Sarasota, Florida.  Jerry opened his business in 2007 after suffering an injury to his left hand. I have visited Jerry’s left-handed guitar shop many times to produce videos of his unique collection of acoustic and electric instruments.

Jerry has a lot of guitars custom ordered for his shop, including limited runs of PRS, Tom Anderson, Suhr, and many more.  Guitarists not wanting the same old brands will get a kick out of what Jerry has to offer.

Xtreme Guitars

Website – Xtreme Guitars

Xtreme guitars are one of the new left-handed guitar shops on the block when it comes to dedicated left-handed guitars.  I love the fact Xtreme guitars carry vastly different brands to Jerry’s and Southpaw guitars, making them a genuinely unique left-handed guitar shop as well.

As the shop name suggests, these brands appeal to players who love metal and hard rock.  Some of the brands Xtreme guitars carry are Acacia, Charvel, Dean, EVH, Framus, and many more.

David Giunta, the store owner, always had a dream of setting up a unique left-handed guitar who specializes in the best of American-made left-handed guitars.  There’s bound to be something here for anyone who likes the pointy side of electric guitars.  Check them out if you have a chance.  After chatting with David via email, he’s a nice guy! Located in Palm City, Florida, this is well worth a visit.

Lefty Guitars Only

Website – Lefty Guitars Only

Lefty Guitars Only is a left-handed guitar shop that n Boston, MA. This lefty guitar store features a unique electric guitar inventory spanning brands like Blackbird, Collings, PRS Private Stock, Santa Cruz Guitar Company, and many more.

For those interested in acoustic guitars, Lefty Guitars Only have you covered.  This shop started with envy for right-handed options in regular shops, and it could not have worked out better! Below is a quote from their website:

Like many of you, I’ve spent my life envying right-handed players who can walk into a large music store and choose between dozens of high-end instruments, while we are lucky to find a $200 lefty Fender hanging next to all those Martins and Gibsons.

I can personally relate well to this statement!  Born out of frustration was the birth of the Lefty Only Guitar shop. The shop is well worth a visit if you are in the Boston area.
