Jackson : Left Handed Guitars 2017

Left handed Jackson guitars aren’t exactly a dime a dozen, but we do have a small, quality selection to choose from. Hopefully there’s enough on offer here for most players to find something they’ll like, but if not there’s always the Custom Shop!

To be included in this list, the guitars have to be available to purchase at the time of writing. As a result, this list might include a couple of older models which are now discontinued but still available to buy.

Find out more about each of these left handed Jackson guitars below. I’ve included links for each guitar (where available) which will show you current pricing information as well as additional specifications. Alternatively, click here for a list of all guitars sorted by price.

The left handed Jackson Pro Series Monarkh is one of two brand new lefties, announced at Winter NAMM 2017. Perfect for modern metal, but with enough tonal versatility to manage any genre of music thanks to the active Seymour Duncan Blackout pickups. Unlike most singlecut guitars where access to the higher frets isn’t always easy, Jackson’s contoured heel-cut ensures that this isn’t a problem on the Monarkh.

  • Fretboard : 12″-16″ Compound Radius Rosewood (24 Jumbo Frets)

Jackson Custom Shop

Of course, if you have the money there’s always the Jackson Custom Shop where you can have any of their guitars built left handed and to your specifications.

The image below showcases a ton of custom left handed Jacksons, on display at Xtreme Lefty Guitars in Florida, USA.

Limited Run Jacksons

A few stores may occasionally commission a small number of left handed Jackson guitars which aren’t usually available as standard.  For example, in addition to the models above, our friends over at Xtreme Lefty Guitars quite often have one or two Jacksons that you won’t find anywhere else.

Jackson Website

Unfortunately, the Jackson website doesn’t include a section or filter for left handed models. However, we can type ‘lh‘ into the search box to throw up a list of the southpaw guitars.

    would love rhoads a snow white with black bevels (like the righthanded js32/x series) as the zebra pickups look kinda odd on a satin gray guitar.

      Having played both of these at NAMM, they are borderline the same guitar. The DK2 might get the nod because the 3-screw neck joint is awesome and allows for easy access to the upper frets… also, Jackson’s neck profile is a hair thinner and flatter. Both guitars felt great though.
