Steinberger : Left Handed Guitars and Basses

Neal June 15, 2011 3

Known for its innovative headless guitar designs, Steinberger Guitars was founded in 1980 by Ned Steinberger.  These uniquely designed guitars took the world by storm and very quickly demand began to greatly outstrip supply.  After being unable to keep up with demand, Steinberger was sold to Gibson Guitars in 1987 who continue to produce the instruments today.

As you’d expect from a company owned by Gibson there aren’t too many left handed guitars available from Steinberger.  They offer up one of their electrics and two of their bass guitars in a lefty version, and you guessed it..they’re black.

Let’s take a look at the left handed selection from Steinberger…

Steinberger Website

The Steinberger website like many others has no obvious mention of which guitars are available left handed.  In order to find out this information you’ll need to click on a model and then click on the ‘colors’ menu where it will display which finishes are available left handed (if any).

    I found the Spirit GT-Pro Deluxe on Musiciansfriend but in the photo there seems to be no vibrato like the one u have here.

      It has the tremolo, just for some reason the photo doesn’t feature the arm. If you compare the right and left handed ones at Musicians Friend you’ll see they have the same tremolo. If you’re worried about it drop MF a line ;)
