Epiphone : Left Handed Guitars

Looking for a left handed Epiphone but unsure which guitars are currently available as lefties? Take a quick read through this article and all shall be revealed! 

Epiphone was founded in 1873 by Anastasios Stathopoulos in Turkey, and made its name making fiddles and lutes. The company moved to the United States in 1903 where the business expanded their range of instruments and made a name for itself.  Eventually in 1957 after a series of company strikes the brand was bought out by its main rival, Gibson Guitars.

To be eligible to appear in this list of left handed Epiphone guitars the models have to be available to buy in stores at the time of writing. For example. although the Epiphone site lists the G-310 as being available lefty, it hasn’t been available for a long time, so isn’t included here.

      I haven’t heard anything – they SHOULD though! They sold well.

      I wish they’d bring back the Les Paul 100 as well. There’s not a single electric here that is affordable for new players.

      I second that – I’ve tried everywhere for the 2014 Limited Edition EJ-200SCE (LH) – one came up on e-bay recently and sold straight away. I’m sure they would fly out the door if Epiphone re-released the model, the demand is definitely there.

    better off putting that $1000 into a savings bond. The ROI over time will be much greater than investing in an epiphone.
