Left Handed Ibanez Guitars & Basses 2016

Left Handed Ibanez Guitars

I’ll be honest – I’ve been putting off writing this article for a long time due to the amount of work involved in creating it. Ibanez is a tricky brand to add to the site because their left handed range is constantly changing. Limited edition models come and go, individual stores commission exclusive runs, and on top of that, some left handed Ibanez guitars are only available in certain regions.

To be eligible to appear in this article the guitars have to be currently listed on either the Ibanez USA or Europe websites. I’ve also included a few older left handed Ibanez guitars which are still readily available in stores. Leave a comment at the bottom of the page if I’ve missed any (and no doubt I have!).

Ibanez J-Custom RG8570ZL

Ibanez J Custom RG8570ZL Left Handed Guitar

I saved the best til last… XtremeLeftyGuitars has commissioned a run of J.Custom RG8570ZL guitars in Purple Amethyst! J.Customs are the most exclusive, high-end guitars available from Ibanez, and are crafted in Japan by their top luthiers. Aside from Custom Shop guitars, these are truly the creme de la creme! Only 6 of these will be made for XLG.

Judging from the chatter I’ve noticed on various Facebook groups and forums, I imagine these have all pre-sold pretty much instantly. But why not give XLG a call just in case…

If you’ve spotted a new left handed Ibanez guitar which isn’t included in this guide, I’d love it if you would leave a comment below. Or if you’d prefer, drop me an email.

Ibanez Website

The Ibanez USA website is currently the most lefty friendly, as it has sections to browse left handed models specifically. Unfortunately, most of the other regional websites have recently ditched their southpaw areas, forcing us to trawl the entire website to find out which models are available. Fingers crossed this is rectified soon!

    I just recently emailed guitarguitar to see if the AM93L was available as it was showing on the Ibanez website but i couldnt find one for sale online, they told me that the guitar was not available. Do you know if this guitar will become available for the uk again or is it only available in other regions. cheers

      Hey James. I believe that model is now discontinued – I included it because a few stores still have stock. After a quick look, I can’t see any UK stores that have one, but KeyMusic in Europe still seem to have one or two.

      Unless they’re like Fender, and don’t have the equipment necessary to make a lefty in that shape, I don’t see why not. I think Xtreme Lefty Guitars would be the guys to contact about something like that.
