Childrens Left Handed Guitars : UK Edition

Based in the UK and searching for a great first guitar for your left handed child this Christmas? You’ve come to the right place!

After putting together a 1/2 size and 3/4 size guide for our U.S readers, many of you emailed asking for alternative choices for UK buyers. Well the slightly sad news is that the choice over here in good old Blighty isn’t quite as large as it is across the pond.  However, there are still some great guitars which should give your kids a good introduction to their new hobby

Let’s dive in…

1/2 Sized Guitars

Unfortunately I was unable to source any half sized electric guitars within the UK, however there are some great options for those after an acoustic or classical guitar. Take a look through the 3/4 size list at the end of the page for electric options. You’ll find that a 3/4 size electric will be perfectly manageable for most children.

UK Half Size Left Handed Acoustic Classical Guitars

Classical Guitars

3/4 Sized Guitars

Acoustic Guitars

There’s only one choice here as far as I’m concerned. I recommend it to our US friends, and I happily suggest it to UK southpaws as well. Choose from natural, blue, black or pink – easy!

Classical Guitars

Electric Guitars


If picking up an acoustic or classical guitar, make sure you also pick up a Snark headstock tuner. These inexpensive clip-on headstock tuners will ensure that your new guitar is perfectly in tune.

So there you have it folks, the best UK Childrens Left Handed Guitars. Hope you managed to find something suitable! Any of these will put a smile on someone’s face this Christmas!
