Left Handed Gretsch Guitar Range

Looking for a left handed Gretsch guitar? You are in the right place my friend!

Gretsch Guitars was founded in the USA in 1883 by Friedrich Gretsch, a young German immigrant who initially started the company selling banjos, tambourines and drums.  From humble beginnings the company has grown to become one of the biggest players in the guitar world, with several high profile names endorsing the brand.

Does Gretsch Make Left Handed Guitars?

Yes! At the time of writing there are 9 left handed Gretsch guitar models, or 14 if you count all of the different color options! These are spread out over the Streamliner, Electromatic, and Professional Collection ranges.

Left Handed Gretsch Guitar Range

Unfortunately there are no lefty acoustic or bass guitars at the moment – looking at the website you will quickly notice that Gretsch concentrate heavily on their electric guitars over anything else.  Luckily they do offer some unquestionably gorgeous 6-strings to the southpaw guitar players of the world, featuring absolutely stunning attention to detail.

11. Special Run Left Handed Gretsch Guitar Models

But wait, there’s more!

If none of that considerable list tickles your fancy, you might also be able to spot a few more lefties dotted around the interwebs in the form of special run models.

Limited Edition Left Handed Gretsch Guitar

The store that instantly comes to mind is Jerry’s Lefty Guitars in Florida, USA. A little while back, Jerry commissioned a small run of Electromatics which were so popular that he decided to do it again, and then again.

Although these will only be available on the second hand market now, I’m hoping that Jerry (or other specialist lefty stores) might decide to commission new runs. I will be the first to let you know if they happen!

Gretsch Website

The website is well designed with plenty of large, high quality images for players to drool over. Unfortunately there is currently no left handed section.  There is a left handed filter, but I found that it was missing some guitars.

The site does have a search bar which can be used to find the lefty guitars however.
