Gaskell Guitars is an Australian manufacturer that makes production and custom left handed guitars and basses that are not readily available left handed from other companies. They are in the rather unique position of being one of a very select few companies in the world who build ONLY lefty guitars.
The range of guitars from Gaskell has changed quite a bit since last year, with some brand new models being introduced and some less popular models being discontinued. Don’t fret if you had your eye on a now discontinued model however, as many are still available to order through the custom shop.
This will be a fairly sizable article, so let’s dive in right away. Be sure to check out the Gaskell website for more detailed photos and information about finishes and other options.
