So What is LeftyFretz.com all About?
LeftyFretz is a website aimed solely at left handed guitar players, no righties allowed! Well okay, but only if you play nice! It can sometimes be tricky being a left handed musician living in a right handed world, and we all know the frustration of drooling over gear reviews on other sites knowing that drooling is as far as we will ever get. This is where LeftyFretz steps in! Everything you read on this website will apply to YOU as a lefty musician. Any guitars we talk about will be available left handed, any media we review will be applicable to lefties, any artists we interview will be southpaws…you get the picture!
It’s an unfortunate fact that many musicians feel that playing left handed puts you at a distinct disadvantage. LeftyFretz is here to show you that this is simply not the case anymore – if anything being a southpaw guitarist just makes things even more exciting and diverse – embrace your lefty roots and stand out from the crowd! ;)

Who Actually Runs This Site?
My name is Neal, and you’ll get no prizes for guessing that like you, i’m a left handed guitarist. I’m currently based in bonnie (rainy!) Scotland and at the time of writing I’ve just turned the ripe old age of 36! Here’s a recent drawing of me and my little family.
Although LeftyFretz does sometimes feel like a full-time job, I do actually take part in gainful employment. I currently work for a guitar chain here in the UK called GuitarGuitar where I spend most of my days making silly graphics to help sell products to our lovely customers. We do usually have a great selection of lefties, so if you’re near our Glasgow store definitely come by and say hello!
