Fender Left Handed Electric Guitars 2021

Fender Kurt Cobain Jag-Stang Left Handed

Fender Kurt Cobain Jag-Stang Left Handed

Brand new for 2021 is the left handed Fender Kurt Cobain Jag-Stang. This year marks the 30th anniversary of Nirvana’s legendary ‘Nevermind’ album, and to celebrate, Fender is releasing not one, but two left handed Jag-Stangs.

If you weren’t aware, Kurt actually helped design the Jag-Stang, with his aim being to combine his favorite elements of both the Fender Jaguar and Mustang.

The alder body of the Jag-Stang helps to offer up a solid, punch tone which is screaming out for heavy power chords. A shorter 24″ scale length coupled with a slim maple neck, and 7.25″ radius rosewood fingerboard was perfect for Kurt’s smaller frame, and faithfully recreated here.

A vintage style humbucker and single-coil pickup combined with plenty of switching options offers up a variety of different tones.

  • Body : Alder
  • Neck : Maple Slim “C”
  • Scale Length : 24″
  • Fretboard : Rosewood w/ 22 Vintage Frets (7.25″ Radius)
  • Pickups : Jag-Stang Humbucker & Single-Coil
  • Bridge : 6-Saddle Vintage-Style Mustang Trem
  • Case : Deluxe Fender Gig Bag

The left handed Fender Kurt Cobain Jagstang is available in both sonic blue and fiesta red, and includes a deluxe fender gig bag.

I am guessing that these limited edition models are going to fly off the shelves, so my advice would be to grab one sooner rather than later if interested.

Left Handed Fender American Ultra Stratocaster

The American Ultra Stratocaster is one of the latest additions to Fender’s lefty range, having been introduced during winter NAMM 2021. Fender calls them their most advanced range of guitars, taking traditional designs and merging them with modern and innovative features.

Standout modern appointments include a 10″-14″ compound radius fretboard, ultra noiseless vintage pickups, locking tuners, and advanced electronics for endless tonal possibilities – the new S-1 switch will add the neck pickup to position 1 or 2 for a fatter tone.

The lightweight alder body features a new, contoured neck heel to allow for better upper fret access, and an ergonomic rear body carve for comfort.

An interesting feature of the left handed Fender American Pro II Strat is the push-push tone knob, which will mix in the neck pickup no matter that position you are in. Excellent for fattening up your sound!

The American Pro II Telecaster is aimed squarely at working musicians and discerning amateurs alike, and features a raft of playability upgrades over the original American Pro Tele.

From top to bottom : 3-Color Sunburst, Mystic Surf Green, Miami Blue, Butterscotch Blonde

Main features of the American Professional II fender telecaster left handed include new V-Mod II pickups specifically voiced for each position, brass saddle bridge for perfect intonation as well as vintage inspired tones, plus modern electronics to allow for fatter sounds that you would not usually associate with a Telecaster.

The latest V-Mod II pickups will offer up that familiar Telecaster twang, with new levels of enhanced clarity and focus. Another great feature is the treble bleed circuit, which will help to maintain those treble tones when you roll off the volume.

Like it’s Strat and Jazzmaster brethren, the Tele also features a sculpted rear heel for improved upper fret access. The fretboard is also silky smooth to play thanks to its rolled edges.

This guitar is available left handed in a choice of 4 different eye-catching colors.

Fender FSR Guitars

From time to time, Fender will release Factory Special Run (FSR) guitars in limited numbers. These special guitars are similar to ‘Spot Production’ guitars from Ibanez as they may only be available in select regions.

Fender Mod Shop

Until recently, Fender had offered their ‘American Design Experience‘ service, which allowed USA customers to create their dream guitar or bass using their online builder. This has now been replaced with the ‘Fender Mod Shop‘ – which is a revamped and improved version of the previous service.

The Mod Shop webpage consists of a simple-to-use interface which allows players to design a custom Strat, Tele, Jazzmaster, Jaguar, Acoustasonic, P-Bass or Jazz Bass. Available options include body color and wood, fingerboard wood, pickguard material, hardware color, type of pickups, tuning machines and bridge style – and of course, left handed mode!

Fender Mod Shop Builder Interface

Once your design is complete, simply add it to your cart and pay. Fender will send you your custom guitar (free shipping in the USA) within just 30 days! I was able to come up with the 7 designs below in a matter of minutes.

Fender Mod Shop Left Handed Guitars

Unfortunately this service is only available to USA-based customers at the time of writing. If you are outside of the USA (like me!) you won’t be able to order your guitar, but it’s fun to have a little play to see what you can come up with!

Head to fendermodshop to start building!

Fender Custom Shop

Last, but certainly not least, we have the ‘Dream Factory‘, aka the Fender Custom Shop. Here, you can have the skilled Fender craftsmen build you your absolute dream guitar. The only limit here is going to be the size of your wallet!

To give you an idea of what they’re capable of, check out the guitar below that one of our customers ordered a little while back. This Masterbuilt ’72 Thinline Tele relic has to be one of the most incredible lefty Fenders I’ve ever seen!

LeftyFretz Fender Left Handed Survey

Earlier this year I posted a fairly in-depth survey to try and discover what left handed Fender guitars and basses YOU would like to see next.

The results were super interestingyou can click here to see them.

This data has been passed on to Fender in the hopes that it will help them decide which lefties to introduce next year.

In addition I have given this info to the purchasing team at the guitar store I work at. As a result of that I believe we are getting a run of very special lefties at some point in 2022 – watch this space!
