New Left Handed Ibanez Ukulele for 2013

Neal January 23, 2013 6

It was just the other day that one of the readers was asking me about left handed ukulele’s – and I have to admit, they’re not the easiest of things to find!  Luckily Ibanez are about to launch a new left handed model (and it has a super memorable name) – say hello to the  UEW20LSME!  Okay, so I was being sarcastic about the name…

Again, this has only been spotted in the 2013 Ibanez Europe catalogue, so at the moment it is only confirmed for the European market.

    hooray!!!
    Ukulele manufacturers finally realising that all Ukulele players are NOT all right handed – this being the reason I started making my own!!!!

    I suspect us lefties will have to pay the over-inflated prices though, as usual!!

    I found it listed on a site in the Netherlands at 215 Euros. I don’t know how that compares with a righty model, though.

    Finally got one! arrived 2/18/14 from Guitar Center, probably one of the first lefties in the US. Beautifully made and worth the wait.

    Not sure if it was done on purpose or what, but when you look at the name quickly, it looks like it says AWESOME lol.

    FYI, used these are usually around $150 to $180. brand new, you can get them low at around $300 and high at around $415. Believe me. I searched around a LOT. At one point I had like 58 tabs open on Chrome for the left handed option.
