Chances are, you stumbled across this page looking to pick up your very first southpaw 7-stringer. On a budget, left handed models aren’t the easiest to come by – but I’ve listed some of my favorites below. And no, this list isn’t sponsored by Schecter, it’s just that they are one of the few brands that cater to lefties without going to the custom shop!

The most affordable route into the world of 7-strings will be one of the 2 Omens. They are essentially the same guitar, but you pay a little extra for the Extreme model which comes with a fancier quilted maple top and a few other extras. I myself started out on an Omen Extreme 7, and can highly recommend it as a solid intro to extended range guitars.
