Left Handed Squier Guitars & Basses

Looking for a left handed Squier guitar or bass, but not sure which models are available this year? Take a read through this article for a quick summary of the entire left handed Squier guitar range for 2021!

The current stable of southpaw models has remained more or less the same for the past few years, having a good selection of key models available to suit most budgets.

The latest addition is the new Squier left handed MINI Strat, which was really cool to see finally happening. A perfect choice for young southpaw rockers!

Unfortunately if you’re after a left handed acoustic guitar you’re out of luck, as Squier doesn’t currently have any. The good news is that Fender does have some really great (and affordable) acoustic options!

Does Squier Make Left Handed Guitars?

Yes! At the time of writing Squier offers 11 different left handed guitars and basses. This is comprised of a good range of several left handed Stratocasters and Telecasters, 1 Jazzmaster, and a small selection of basses over various Squier price points.

There is also an exclusive, limited edition Telecaster that you will find at the end of this page!

Squier Mini Stratocaster Left Handed

This is the latest addition to the left handed Squier range, having only been introduced in the summer of 2020.

Left Handed Squier Mini Stratocaster

The Mini Strat is a roughly 3/4 sized guitar with a scale length of 22.75″. It would make the perfect starter electric for younger players, or would equally be at home on the road as a portable travel guitar.

Main features include a lightweight poplar body, maple neck, 20 fret Indian laurel fingerboard and 3 single-coil pickups with 5-way selector. It really is a proper scaled down Strat – the only thing it lacks is a tremolo bridge!

  • Body : Poplar
  • Neck : Maple w/ Indian Laurel Fretboard
  • Pickups : Squier Single-Coil Strat x3
  • Bridge : 6-Saddle Hardtail
  • Tuners : Die-Cast Sealed
  • Finish : Gloss Black

Squier Affinity Series

The Affinity series is where many new guitarists will start out, as they are the most affordable full-sized left handed Squier models available. Both guitars are super versatile, lightweight and feature comfortable slim C-shaped necks, making them an ideal choice for beginner players.

Let’s take a closer look at these two beauties!

Squier Affinity Stratocaster Left Handed Electric Guitar

The Squier Affinity Stratocaster left handed electric guitar certainly looks the part with its traditional sunburst finish, and thanks to its quality features, it sounds the part as well!

Left Handed Squier Affinity Stratocaster

A lightweight poplar body is coupled with a maple neck and 21 fret Indian laurel fingerboard. A 5-way selector switch wired into three singlecoil pickups ensures that you will have a packed arsenal of sought after Strat tones to play with. A large 60s style headstock and vintage inspired tremolo gives this excellent little performer plenty of classic mojo.

Who is it for? The left handed Squier Affinity Strat is one of the most popular beginner electric guitars for new southpaw players, but it’s also a brilliant backup option for more experience players.

  • Body : Poplar
  • Neck : Maple w/ Indian Laurel Fretboard
  • Pickups : Squier Standard Single-Coil Strat x3
  • Bridge : 6-Saddle Vintage-Style Tremolo
  • Tuners : Standard Die-Cast Sealed
  • Finish : Brown Sunburst

Squier Affinity Telecaster Left Handed

The left handed Squier Affinity Telecaster comes in a beautiful transparent butterscotch blonde finish, which displays the attractive figuring of the wood underneath.

Left Handed Squier Affinity Telecaster

Like its Stratocaster brother above, this left handed Squier Telecaster features a slim polar body and maple neck, but swaps the rosewood fingerboard for a lighter maple fretboard. Two single-coil pickups and a traditional 3-way selector ensures that all of the sought after Telecaster tones are present and accounted for. A classy black pickguard completes the look of this vintage inspired model.

Who is it for? It’s a great option for new players, but is also a very popular choice for guitarists looking for an affordable backup instrument.

  • Body : Poplar
  • Neck : Slim ‘C’ Maple Neck w/ Maple Fretboard
  • Pickups : Standard Single-Coil Telecaster
  • Bridge : 6-Saddle Hardtail
  • Tuners : Standard Die-Cast Sealed
  • Finish : Butterscotch Blonde

Squier Classic Vibe Series

The Classic Vibe Series are the cream of the crop when it comes to Squier’s left handed models. Southpaws have the choice of two Strats, one Telecaster, and a Jazzmaster, each inspired by guitars from a specific decade.

In my opinion, these guitars are more than capable of going toe to toe with their bigger Fender brothers, which cost significantly more. This is why I highly recommend them in the Newbie Guide. In terms of sheer value for money, the Classic Vibes are arguably the best left handed guitars around. In fact, I have two myself! And I’d love to add one of the new Jazzmasters…

Squier Classic Vibe 60s Jazzmaster Left Handed

Squier Classic Vibe 60s Jazzmaster Left Handed

The left handed Squier Classic Vibe 60s Jazzmaster is the latest addition to Squier’s southpaw range, and is currently the most affordable officially licensed left handed Jazzmaster available. Old school 60s aesthetics are in place thanks to period correct headstock decals, nickel played hardware, and a vintage-tinted gloss neck finish. Other key features include Fender designed Alnico singlecoil pickups, slim ‘C’ shaped neck, and that signature Jazzmaster floating tremolo. An exciting new addition for sure which is available in a classy Olympic White finish, complimented by a tortoiseshell scratchplate.

  • Body : Poplar
  • Neck : ‘C’ Maple Neck w/ Indian Laurel Fretboard
  • Pickups : Fender Design Alnico Single-Coils
  • Bridge : 6-Saddle Vintage w. Non-Locking Vibrato
  • Tuners : Vintage Style
  • Finish : Olympic White

Squier Classic Vibe 60s Stratocaster Left Handed

Squier Classic Vibe 60s Stratocaster Left Handed

The Classic Vibe 60s Strat is modelled after iconic stratocasters from the 1960s for bags of vintage vibe and tone. It has a nato body, maple neck, 21 fret maple fingerboard, and the classic triple single coil pickup configuration. I personally think these are the best sounding Stratocasters you can lay your hands on without spending some serious cash.

  • Body : Nato
  • Neck : ‘C’ Maple Neck w/ Indian Laurel Fretboard
  • Pickups : Fender Design Alnico Single-Coils
  • Bridge : 6-Saddle Vintage-Style Tremolo
  • Tuners : Vintage Style
  • Finish : 3-Color Sunburst

Squier Classic Vibe 50s Telecaster Left-Handed

Squier Classic Vibe 50s Telecaster Left Handed

The left handed Squier Classic Vibe 50s Tele is based upon a typical Telecaster from the 1950s, and like the Strat above, is absolutely stunning value for money. Its beautiful pine body is clearly visible through its classic butterscotch blonde finish. A comfortable C-shaped maple neck is coupled with a 21 fret maple fingerboard. Finally, dynamically responsive single coil pickups have been custom designed to give that perfect crisp and rich tone that only a Tele can produce.

  • Body : Pine
  • Neck : ‘C’ Maple Neck w/ Maple Fretboard
  • Pickups : Fender Design Alnico Single-Coils
  • Bridge : 3-Saddle Vintage-Style String-Through-Body
  • Tuners : Vintage Style
  • Finish : Butterscotch Blonde

Squier Classic Vibe 70s Stratocaster LH

Squier Classic Vibe 70s Stratocaster Left Handed

Another exciting new addition to the current Squier range is the left handed Squier Classic Vibe 70s Stratocaster, which stands out due to its HSS (humbucker and two singlecoil) pickup configuration. As with the previous 3 models, this guitar has period correct features to give it that authentic vintage vibe. It is only available in that old lefty favourite – gloss black – but the black scratchplate and pickups really work well together to create a guitar with some seriously bold and striking looks.

  • Body : Poplar
  • Neck : ‘C’ Maple Neck w/ Maple Fretboard
  • Pickups : Fender Design Alnico Humbucker & Single-Coils
  • Bridge : 6-Saddle Vintage-Style Tremolo
  • Tuners : Vintage Style
  • Finish : Gloss Black

Squier Contemporary Series Left Handed

If vintage mojo is not what you’re after, then the thoroughly 21st century Contemporary Series will probably be more up your street. These guitars showcase more ‘progressive’ features whilst still maintaining that authentic Fender vibe. What really sets them apart from the guitars above is their dual humbucker configuration, allowing players access to thicker tones.

UPDATE MAY 2021: These two have now been discontinued. The Tele seems to be pretty much sold out everywhere, but stock of the Strat is still fairly healthy. Check out the link below to see what is currently available.

Left Handed Squier Contemporary Series Guitars

The left handed Squier Contemporary Telecaster is quite the departure from the usual lefty offerings from Fender/Squier. First you have the dual chrome-covered ceramic humbuckers, then you have the matching headstock finish which gives the guitar a Fender Japan style vibe. A modern 12″ fingerboard radius is built for speed and easy bends, while the 6-saddle bridge provides superior intonation, sustain and ease of adjustment. A very cool and unique guitar indeed!

  • Body : Poplar
  • Neck : Slim ‘C’ Maple Neck w/ Maple Fretboard
  • Pickups : Dual Chrome-Covered Ceramic Humbuckers
  • Bridge : 6-Saddle Telecaster w/ Block Saddles
  • Tuners : Standard Die-Cast
  • Finish : Dark Metallic Red

The left handed Squier Contemporary Stratocaster is the second choice from the Contemporary Series. It too features high output dual ceramic humbuckers for powerful tones and searing solos. This affordable 80s inspired superstrat also includes a modern tremolo bridge system, fast slim ‘c’ neck, 12″ fretboard radius and a simplified control setup. Very cool, and very affordable!

  • Body : Poplar
  • Neck : Slim ‘C’ Maple Neck w/ Maple Fretboard
  • Pickups : Dual Ceramic Humbuckers
  • Bridge : 2-Point Tremolo w/ Block Saddles
  • Tuners : Standard Die-Cast
  • Finish : Metallic Black

Squier Left Handed Bass Guitars

Thought we’d forgotten you bassists eh? Check out these two beauties from Squier’s excellent Classic Vibe range!

Squier Classic Vibe 70s Jazz Bass Left Handed

Squier Classic Vibe 70s Jazz Bass Left Handed

The new left handed Squier Classic Vibe 70s Jazz Bass is a tribute to the J Basses Fender was putting out in the 1970s. In keeping with the vibe of that era, this new bass features period correct headstock details, nickel plated hardware, and a vintage-tinted gloss neck. Other standout features include black block inlays, a comfortable slim-c neck shape and a lightweight poplar body. In keeping with the style of the Clasic Vibe 70s Strat above, this bass comes in gloss black, with black scratchplate and pickups – why not get both for a complete set?!

An excellent choice for beginner left handed bass players, or for guitarists wanting to try out bass for the first time. I bought one of these as my first bass, and it continues to serve me well to this day.

  • Body : Poplar
  • Neck : ‘C’ Maple Neck w/ Maple Fretboard
  • Pickups : Fender Design Alnico Single-Coils
  • Bridge : 4-Saddle Vintage Style
  • Tuners : Vintage Style
  • Finish : Gloss Black

Squier Classic Vibe 60s Precision Bass Left Handed

Squier Classic Vibe 60s Precision Bass Left Handed

Rather a P-Bass? Then the new left handed Squier Classic Vibe 60s Precision Bass might tickle your fancy! At least I hope it does, because it’s currently the only left handed Squier Precision bass available!

The 1960s was the decade where the P-Bass truly became an icon, so it seems fitting that this is the model that should be offered up. Experience those authentic classic fat tones thanks to the split single-coil Alnico pickup. It is available left handed in 3-color sunburst, with a tortoiseshell pickguard and indian laurel neck for plenty of vintage vibe.

There may only be a couple of lefty bass options from Squier, but they’re both solid beginner options. Just makes your decision a whole lot easier, right?

  • Body : Poplar
  • Neck : ‘C’ Maple Neck w/ Indian Laurel Fretboard
  • Pickups : Fender Design Alnico Split Single-Coil
  • Bridge : 4-Saddle Vintage Style
  • Tuners : Vintage Style
  • Finish : 3-Color Sunburst

Frequently Asked Questions

Who Plays Squier Guitars?

Artists with their own signature Squier guitars have included J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr, Mike Dirnt of Green Day, Frank Bello of Anthrax, Jim Root of Slipknot, and fellow lefty Ian Fowles from the Aquabats!

Are Squier Guitars Made By Fender?

Yes! Fender acquired the Squier brand back in 1965, but didn’t start producing guitars until 1982. Since then, Squier has been offering up more affordable versions of legendary Fender guitars and basses for beginners and those on a tighter budget.

Squier Website

The Squier website has become a section on the main Fender website, rather than the separate site that it used to occupy.

Although there is a lefty section in place now on the Fender site, some of the guitars are still missing from the page (e.g. the new Mini Strat). Good thing I put together this article for you then!

Oh, and one last thing to remember.. It’s spelled SquiER – please don’t be one of those Squire people!
