ESP Left Handed Guitars and Basses

ESP is a Japanese manufacturer of guitars, founded in 1975 by Hisatake Shibuya in Tokyo.  The company started out by providing custom replacement parts for guitars, but very quickly built a name for themselves after introducing their own high-end guitar designs.  Today ESP is one of the world’s most popular guitar brands for players of heavier music.

Last year we gave up trying to find out exactly which guitars ESP offered left handed, after wasting too much time trying to contact their non-existent USA customer service department.  However this year we were able to obtain a list of guitars from the UK division – huzzah!

So what do we know now?  Well despite what their website would have you believe, ESP is actually a very lefty friendly company indeed, albeit with a slight price hike tacked on top.

For a 10% increase on the RRP you can order any Standard or Original Series ESP guitar or bass in a left handed option.  These guitars will generally be made to order, however a small number of popular models are kept in stock most of the time.

ESP Custom Shop

If one of the Original or Standard Series guitars do not satisfy your needs then there is always the ESP Custom Shop.  However a guitar from there will cost you one arm and one leg.

The ESP (USA) website is a complete disaster when it comes to catering for left handed guitarists.  There is a vague note in the site FAQ about contacting your dealer for further information – but honestly, you’d think that one of the biggest guitar companies in the world would be able to take ten minutes to put a quick note on their product pages, or at the very least on their FAQ page.  Still, we’ll forgive them on the grounds that they make killer guitars ;)

    Thanks a ton for this. I live in the US and had given up hope myself after trying to get info out of ESP’s dealers here in the states. I appreciate the tenacity with which you pursue things like this on behalf of us southpaws. I own a 80’s ESP “Custom” super strat from the eighties and it is by far my favorite guitar. (I say “Custom” because that’s all it says on it besides ESP the logo on the headstock. The gentleman that sold it to me said he was the original owner and had ordered from the custom shop sometime in the 80’s.) Keep up the great work, I really do love your site.

      I think so yes – I just picked a sample of different models for that image. If you need a price you’ll need to contact your ESP dealer i’m afraid.

    Xtreme lefty guitars has a good selection of ESP guitars all the time and the stock rotates frequently. He oders a lot of one of a kind stuff from ESP also, so you need to visit his site frequently. His prices on gear is very reasonable. If you want to order something special just ask and he will check with the ESP rep. I got my silver sparkle Eclipse that way. It took 8 months though, but worth the wait.
