PRS : Left Handed Guitars 2011

PRS halted regular production of lefty guitars in the early 2000’s, and as such if you wanted one now you’d need to resort to finding one second-hand or begging the custom shop to make one for you at huge expense. Luckily for the left handed PRS fans there will be a limited production run of Custom 22’s this year – grab one before they’re gone!

As with last year, the LeftyFretz page for PRS will be slightly different to the rest as it will only contain information about limited production runs when they are announced.  This means this page is likely to update over the rest of the year when new information becomes available.

PRS recently offered a limited production run of 250 left handed Custom 22’s to stores which should be ready around June 2011.  As is customary with PRS, they have omitted to actually tell anyone else about these lefty guitars, so we’ve tried our best to find out as much information as we could.  The new models will have the following specs :

  • Maple Top
  • Mahogany Body
  • 25″ scale length
  • Mahogany neck /w Wide-Fat profile
  • 22 fret rosewood fingerboard
  • Old style PRS abalone bird inlays
  • Uncovered 59/09 pickups
  • Hard shell case included

    Notice the bird inlays are the old school version, which probably means PRS are getting rid of their existing stock and these guitars are the very last of the PRS lefty we’ll see, at least for a very, very long time…

    I just saw a couple of these on Ebay from Wild West Guitars out in California…I think they have 2 or 3 listed for $3,700+…10 tops.

    Any news out there as to who else has ordered or has any of these, other than the above mentioned retailers?

    I’d be interested to see who else has them and in what finishes.
