Greg Bennett : Left Handed Guitars

After 40 years of manufacturing guitars, Korean musical instrument brand Samick hired industry veteran Greg Bennett to give their range of guitars an extreme makeover.  This new Samick range, now under the name of Greg Bennett Guitars, features a wide array of professional level parts such as Duncan designed pickups, Wilkinson hardware and great woods sourced from all over the world.

Unfortunately at present Greg Bennett does not offer too many of their guitars left handed, with there being only five available in total.  There are two lefty electric guitars, two acoustics and one bass guitar on offer, so they do manage to cover most bases with this humble offering.  However, it would be nice to see a larger selection in the future…

Let’s take a look at what’s on offer from Greg Bennett guitars…

Greg Bennett Website

The Greg Bennett website lists all of the left handed guitars separately from their right handed counterparts, making them fairly simple to discover.  Although you do need to go through the entire website to uncover the range models available, so it would be nice to see a left handed section or a list on the FAQ page.  My only real gripe with the website was the fact that the navigation menu for some reason is coded in Flash, which meant that the website didn’t function while I was trying to research the company on my iPad.  A large number of people browse the web on mobile devices these days and the Greg Bennett web team clearly haven’t taken that idea on board.
