Prestige : Left Handed Guitars

Neal Beedie June 25, 2012 4

Prestige Guitars are a relatively new company, having only been launched back in 2003.  They are based in Vancouver, Canada and produce some absolutely fantastic looking hand-crafted electric and acoustic guitars.

Unfortunately Prestige only produce 3 of their guitars in a left handed version.  But the good news is that they are all stunning looking instruments!  Prestige dealers are located almost exclusively within the USA and Canada, so international buyers might find it difficult to get their hands on one.

The Prestige website is very easy to use and features some fantastic images of each guitar.  There is no left handed specific section, however each page shows a clearly visible “Available in Lefty” banner when southpaw models are offered – nice work!

    They’re based in Vancouver BC but oddly enough, don’t appear to have any US dealers on the West Coast. The Heritage Hollow SB QM is a beautiful instrument though (I’m a sucker for bling) and since I don’t own a hollow body would make a fine addition to my collection. I sent an inquiry about a direct purchase so we’ll see what happens from there.
