Washburn : Left Handed Guitars

Washburn Guitars was founded in 1883 in Chicago, Illinois by George Washburn Lyon. The company is best known for its guitars, however they also produce banjos, mandolins, amps and various accessories.

Did you know? Washburn introduced what is thought to be the world’s first dreadnought acoustic guitar – the Lakeside Jumbo –  in 1912!

The range of left handed guitars available from Washburn is fairly small when you consider the size of the company, but there’s some really great models on offer! Almost all of the guitars available are from the Parallaxe Series, which means that the left handed range is going to mostly appeal to rock and metal players.

We also get a couple of handsome acoustics, but unfortunately no basses at present.

I’ve displayed all of the guitars below with a few key specifications – visit the Washburn website for full details. The guitars are listed in the order that they appear in the image above.

Washburn Website

The Washburn website doesn’t have a left handed section at the moment, but lefty models are listed separately to their right handed counterparts. It would be pretty time consuming to trawl through the entire site looking for southpaws, so it’s lucky I put together this little post for you, eh?
