I receive emails on a daily basis asking if we have certain guitars listed on the site in stock. Unfortunately LeftyFretz is not a store, but I can certainly help to point southpaw shoppers in the right direction!

So I thought it would be a good idea to start putting together a list of the places which actually are stores! But not just any old stores – let’s put together a handy list of all of the shops who specialise in left handed guitars from around the world.

Lefty Friendly Stores

Regular guitar stores with better than average left handed sections.  To me, the criteria is a decent selection of guitars which isn’t just made up of the usual token Fenders and Gibsons that every other store sells.

Help me expand this list. If there are some great lefty (or lefty friendly) stores in your neck of the woods leave a comment below!  No doubt I’ve missed plenty of great establishments.

    It should be noted that Taniguchi Gakki isn’t merely lefty friendly but an almost entirely lefty guitar store. Last time I was there, they had a couple sad right handed guitars in the corner.

    I’ll just “plug” Adirondack Guitar (New York); I was set to purchase a lefty Dean classical, but they realized it was out of stock and would be awhile to get one…they suggested a Cordoba, but it was 200$ more; they were good enough to “meet 1/2 way”, I got my Cordoba “Lefty” classical, couldn’t be happier with it….also, Rondo Music, through whom I purchased a “Douglas” lefty 5-string bass, for 185$ USD…I thought, wow, it can’t be much, for that little $$, but what the heck….wow, what a great little bass! Kudos to both stores for good lefty product, no problems hassles re shipping etc. …
