1. Jackson Monarkh Left Handed

Jackson Left Handed Guitars

The left handed Jackson Monarkh is from the brand’s Pro Series, and is one of the latest additions to their southpaw stable. It is the perfect blend of aggressive tone and sublime playability and is the only single-cut lefty currently available.

With features such as Jackson’s Speed neck profile, a smooth compound-radius ebony fingerboard, and active Seymour Duncan Blackout humbuckers for aggressive tone, the Monarkh is a modern metal dream axe.

Unlike on most single-cut guitars where access to the higher frets isn’t always easy, Jackson’s contoured heel-cut ensures that this isn’t a problem on the Monarkh.

Other features include a mahogany body, a maple set-thru neck, an ultra-study graphite-reinforced neck, locking tuners, and a shorter 24.75″ scale length. These left handed Jackson guitars are only available in a black finish currently.

This model is essentially the same as the JS32L above, but has a more traditional 2-point tremolo rather than a locking Floyd Rose-style setup. So if you aren’t all about the dive-bombs and flutters, you can save a few dollars by opting for this model instead.

The main features include a comfortable and lightweight poplar body, a maple bolt-on neck with a 12-16″ radius amaranth fretboard, a pair of high-output Jackson humbuckers, and uber-metal sharkfin inlays.

6. JS32L Left Handed Jackson Rhoads Guitar

Jackson JS32L Rhoads Left Handed

This left handed Jackson V is the Rhoads-style version of the JS32L Dinky above, essentially the same guitar but with the Randy Rhoads-style body shape. This ultra-pointy guitar just screams rock and metal – swift, deadly and affordable.

It features a lightweight poplar body, a bolt-n maple speed profile neck with a 24-fret amaranth fingerboard, two high-output Jackson humbuckers, and a Floyd Rose license double-locking tremolo system.

The 24 jumbo frets sit atop a 12-16″ compound radius fingerboard. This essentially means that the fretboard flattens out the further up you play for easier soloing.
