Dean : Left Handed Guitars and Basses

Wondering which left handed Dean guitars are available? Well you’re in the right place my friend!

In this article you’ll discover the full range of southpaw guitars currently available from Dean, as well as some special models at the end of the page that you won’t find anywhere else!

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.
