New Left Handed Ibanez Bass Guitars

Neal Beedie December 11, 2012 1

We spotted three new left handed Ibanez bass guitars today – as long as you count different finish options as different guitars… Say hello to the new Ibanez GSR180L and SR505L.

Currently these guitars are on the UK website, so there’s a chance they might be UK exclusives. The GSR180L comes in Brown Sunburst and Black, while the SR505L comes in Brown Mahogany.

There are also a few slightly redesigned versions of older models such as the SR300L in Iron Pewter.

    Several years ago when I bought my SR500L bass I learned via the Ibanez distributer that there was ONE left handed 5 string in the US, but it could be shipped out to CA for me. At the time I passed thinking that Ibanez would surely continue to offer them in the states and that I didn’t have a need for a 5 string, well of course in hindsight that wasn’t one of my better decisions as I haven’t seen this left handed model in the U.S. since, which is even more annoying as the 500 series is one of the best basses I’ve ever played.
