LAG : Left Handed Acoustic Guitars 2011

LAG Guitars is a French company founded by master luthier Michel Lâg-Chavarria in 1980.  LAG are mainly known for their fine range of acoustic guitars, but they do also produce an excellent selection of electric models.  Their acoustic models are making big waves in the guitar industry at the moment after their Tramontane series recently won ‘Best in Show’ for the second year running at NAMM 2011.

LAG currently offer five of their acoustic guitars in a left handed option.  It may be a small selection, but they do manage to cover most bases with what is on offer.  Hopefully we will see more of a selection in the future as LAG builds upon its name and expands.

LAG Website

LAG is one of those companies that have separate websites for different countries, so depending on which website you select you will receive a different experience.  For example the UK website looks fairly dated and is missing quite a few images, whereas the USA site completely neglects to mention that LAG also make electric guitars.

In terms of lefty friendliness the LAG site is fairly good.  Although there’s no option to browse by dexterity, each left handed model is listed separately, making it very easy to find which models we can choose from.

    Hi,I recently ordered a TL100DCE in black gloss finish,from a Lag centre near home.
    It seems they have some production problems,and delivery was posponed from end of june to – maybe – october.
    Nowadays it seems very hard to find a lefty acoustic guitar in Italy,distributors from all the brands have no guitars to deliver,and ordering is very difficult,they don’t know if brands will make this or that model…
    I hope I’ll have my guitar in october,just saying.
