Epiphone : Left Handed Guitars

Looking for a left handed Epiphone but unsure which Epiphone left handed guitars are currently available? Take a quick read through this article and all shall be revealed! 

Epiphone was founded in 1873 by Anastasios Stathopoulos in Turkey, and made its name making fiddles and lutes. The company moved to the United States in 1903 where the business expanded their range of instruments and made a name for itself. Eventually in 1957 after a series of company strikes the brand was bought out by its main rival, Gibson Guitars.

It’s quite difficult to uncover left handed Epiphone guitars on the brand’s website as there is no longer a lefty section, so hopefully this guide will help many of you out!

Does Epiphone Make Left Handed Guitars?

Yes! At the time of writing Epiphone currently offers 13 left handed guitars – 9 electrics, 3 acoustics and 1 bass. The 2021 range includes 6 Les Pauls, 3 SGs, 2 USA-made acoustics, a more affordable dreadnought acoustic, and one semi-hollow bass.

The Les Paul Standard 60s is essentially the same guitar as the model above with 1960s styling and aesthetics. The big difference between the two models is that the neck on the 60s model is slimmer than on the 50s guitar.

Texan USA Epiphone Left Handed Guitars

epiphone left handed acoustic guitars

Take this one with a pinch of salt folks as I can’t actually find this one for sale anywhere at the time of writing. It is listed on the Epiphone website as being available left handed, and on top of that I was informed of lefty models back when they were quietly announced at NAMM. It is also worth mentioning that I was also told the USA Casino would also be available left handed, but this model isn’t listed at all on the Epiphone site currently.

These guitars are handcrafted in Montana by Gibson’s best luthiers, and as such they command a price tag that you would normally associate with a Gibson acoustic. A whole new offering from Epiphone for sure so it’ll be interesting to see how they fare!

Available left handed in Antique Natural and Vintage Sunburst finishes.

  • Body Back/Sides : Solid Mahogany
  • Body Top : Solid Spruce
  • Neck : Mahogany Round D
  • Fingerboard : Indian Rosewood
  • Bridge : Indian Rosewood
  • Tuners : Grover Cream Button

DR-100 Acoustic

The final left handed Epiphone currently available is the affordable DR-100 acoustic from their ‘Original Series’. This guitar is Epiphone’s best selling acoustic and will make an ideal first guitar for budding southpaw fingerpickers and strummers alike.

  • Body Back/Sides : Mahogany
  • Body Top : Select Spruce
  • Neck : Mahogany Slim-Taper C
  • Tuners : Epiphone Premium Die-Cast

Jack Casady Bass

Epiphone Left Handed Jack Casady Bass

The left Handed Epiphone Jack Casady bass is currently the only southpaw bass that the brand offers. Epiphone bills it as the world’s most popular semi-hollow electric bass, and now us lefties can get our grubby southpaws on one!

Available left handed in Metallic Gold.

  • Body : Layered Maple
  • Neck : Mahogany
  • Fingerboard : Indian Laurel
  • Pickups : JCB-1 Low-Impedance Humbucker
  • Bridge : Tune-O-Matic
  • Tuners : Diecast with Clover Buttons

Epiphone Website

The Epiphone website isn’t great when it comes to showing off the brand’s southpaw stable. To discover which guitars are available left handed it is necessary to browse through every individual model and color on the site to see if a ‘left’ option appears. I did contact the company several times for a list and didn’t receive a single reply – perhaps their staff don’t know either! Good thing I put this guide together for you then!
