Wechter : Left Handed Guitars 2011

Neal Beedie March 7, 2011 2

Wechter Guitars was founded in 1984 in Seattle, Washington by owner Abe Wechter.  Abe has designed and built handmade guitars for many famous players including Al DiMeola, BB King and John McLaughlin to name a few, and has spent 9 years working as a model-maker and designer for none other than Gibson Guitars.  A solid portfolio has made Wechter one of the most well respected guitar designers in the world.

Wechter has a wide ranging selection of acoustic instruments, but unfortunately at present only the resonator models are available left handed.  However, considering that left handed resonator guitars are fairly tricky to come by this is no bad thing!  The guitars are very affordably priced which makes these an excellent choice for almost anyone looking for a quality left handed resonator.

Let’s take a look…
