Axl : Left Handed Guitars

Neal July 2, 2012 0

Axl Guitars is a Chinese guitar company who specialise in low-cost instruments.  They have become well known for their unusual ‘Badwater’ series which all feature a dirty, worn look.  They are also one of the very few companies out there who produce 1/2 and 3/4 sized left handed electric guitars.

Unfortunately their left handed range is very limited, with only two guitars available – however technically it’s four since the Headliner model is available in three different sizes! Take a look below for photos and basic specifications.

Axl Website

The Axl website uses a nice, clean design which is easy to navigate.  The Headliner model page mentions left handed availability, but apart from this there is nothing about left handed models anywhere on the site.  As a result I had to get in touch with the company to find out what was available.  Customer service was excellent however.
