So you want to play Ibanez guitars but are unsure which models are available left handed? I just so happen to have compiled a list of their 2010 line-up of left handed guitars to save your lazy asses from doing it yourselves.
Keep in mind that this is the current line-up according to the Ibanez website. The Ibanez websites seem to differ from country to country so there may well be a few more models available, let me know and I will add them. Obviously there are a TON of others which can be had second-hand, but that is for another (much larger) article!
JEM7VL Steve Vai Signature Left Handed Guitar in White
Steve Vai has given the world a new way to think about how to play a guitar and his Ibanez JEM series guitars have served to aid him in that quest. The JEM7VL is a left handed version of the already popular JEM7V, it uses the sleek 5 piece JEM Prestige neck that is a breeze to play. The JEM7VL also features the Edge Pro bridge with Lion’s Claw tremolo that gives you clearance for some of the most wicked flying and diving effects. Don’t forget about the DiMarzio Evolution pickups, they’re super hot and have been Split-5 wired giving you 5 awesome pickup combinations to choose from.
JS1200L Joe Satriani Signature Left Handed Guitar in Candy Apple
The Ibanez Joe Satriani JS1200 guitar has a multi-radius Prestige neck that is an exact digital rendering of the neck on Joe’s favorite axe. Its lightweight aerofoil shaped basswood body provides comfort, upper-fret access and expressive singing tones. A unique high-pass filter on the volume pots maintains highs at low volumes. The combination of a 25.5-inch neck scale and DiMarzio (PAF Joe and Fred) pickups provides wide dynamic range and versatility.
ORM1L Omar Rodriguez Lopez Signature Left Handed Guitar in White
Traditional beauty, the ORM1 was made to look like a vintage guitar. Omar Rodriguez needs a guitar that can measure up to the rigors of playing with Mars Volta and this guitar has more than met his expectations. Comfortable to play, the ORM1 features a shorter 24 inch scale neck and a single pickup with a lone volume control. Simplicity at its best, if anyone knows how to push a guitar to its limits it’s Omar Rodriguez-Lopez.

RG370DXL Left Handed Guitar in Black
The the famous Ibanez RG series – the undisputed standard in guitars for the hard rock player for over 15 years. Ibanez continues that tradition with the 370DXL and its hot humbuckers, Edge III bridge and Wizard II neck (3-piece maple with a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard and sharktooth inlays). The Edge III lets you install strings with or without the ball end, and offers a much lower profile for even better playability. This ingenious design also allows for stiffer string tension arming & improved return-to-pitch and lets you adjust both the height and tension of the arm. Its IBZ INF pickups (2 humbuckers and one single coil) give you the power for heavy rhythm, and blistering, high-gain lead sounds.

The 24-fret rosewood fingerboard features edgy sharktooth inlays. Chrome hardware.
