DBZ Guitars is an American guitar brand which is run by Dean Zelinsky (former owner of Dean Guitars), Jeff Diamant (of Diamond Amplification) and partner Terry Martin. Zelinsky left Dean and founded DBZ in 2008 in order to have personal control over the design, direction and quality of the guitars.
DBZ introduced their first range of left handed guitars at this year’s winter NAMM. In total there are six new models for the southpaw guitarist and each one is absolutely stunning! If these guitars play as good as they look then DBZ is certainly going to be a company to watch out for.

DBZ Guitars Website
The DBZ guys have clearly made sure that they put as much work into their website as they do with their guitars – it’s visually impressive and with plenty of detailed information on each of their products. The website also boasts a bustling forum community where Dean Zelinsky often takes the time to personally answer customer questions.
Most importantly for us southpaws, the website has a left handed section allowing us to quickly find what is on offer – excellent work! For a company that isn’t even 3 years old they are already showing some of the big boys how it should be done! ;)
