Left Handed Explorer, Firebird and Flying V Style Guitars

Neal May 23, 2012 6

Here at LeftyFretz we’re always being asked to recommend brands who produce left handed versions of certain popular but more difficult to find niche guitar designs – usually Explorer, Firebird and Flying V shapes.  So we’ve compiled a short list with handy links to those companies who may satisfy your needs.

This list might include now discontinued or region specific models which could obviously be very difficult to find.  It is a work in progress and will be continually updated as new guitars are introduced or uncovered.

      Plenty of the companies listed above are in Europe. If they aren’t located in Europe almost all of them have European dealers.
