PureSalem : Left Handed Guitars

PureSalem is a relatively new guitar company based in Florida, USA. They offer a good variety of guitars which are an eclectic mix of both traditional and retro designs.

The company is owned by a fellow southpaw player who is obviously well aware of the lack of lefty options offered by many of the bigger name brands. As a result, all PureSalem guitars are available left handed at no additional charge.

And unlike with many other companies, that doesn’t just mean that each model is available in black alone. PureSalem is a really vibrant brand, with each of the guitars being available in usually a choice of three eye-catching colors.
