New Schecter 2018 Left Handed Guitars

Wondering what lefties Schecter will be releasing for 2018? Let’s take a look…

In total (so far!) there are 11 new left handed Schecters which are due to be announced at Winter NAMM 2018. You’ll be pleased to hear that there’s not a gloss black guitar in sight – but there are a few satin black models!

Keep in mind that these are the brand new 2018 models and do not represent the entire left handed Schecter catalogue.

All of these models are available via special order only, with Schecter quoting around a 10-12 week timescale for delivery.
