Dean : Left Handed Guitars and Basses

Dean Guitars was founded in 1976 in Chicago, Illinois by Dean Zelinsky.  Although Zelinsky left Dean in 2009, the company has carried on with new owner Evan Rubinson at the helm.

Dean offers a decent selection of left handed guitars and basses, featuring many exotic shapes which are generally avoided by most of the other larger brands in their southpaw ranges. Although I hope you like black!!
