Left Handed Martin Guitars

Wondering which left handed Martin guitars are currently available? Well, you’re in the right place!

Martin Guitars is an American guitar brand established in 1883 by Christian Frederick Martin. Although the company is mainly known for their highly regarded steel-string acoustic guitars, they also produce an excellent range of ukuleles.

The selection of left handed Martin guitar models range from more affordable Mexican-made instruments, all the way up to eye-wateringly expensive USA custom shop models.

Does Martin Make Left Handed Guitars?

Yes! At the time of writing, Martin offers the vast majority of their range as left handed models at no additional charge. The exceptions are guitars with printed tops, plus the SC models from the brand’s Road Series.

In addition, a small number of Martin ukuleles are not available as lefty versions.

The brand offers a wide range of acoustic and acoustic-electric guitar models that cover the majority of budgets and requirements. Here is a brief summary of a few of the main ranges and types of left handed Martin guitars.

Standard Series. These are the core Martin left handed guitars, encompassing nearly two centuries of the brand’s rich heritage. As one of the most iconic ranges of acoustic guitar ever, the Standard Series features legendary guitars that helped to shape the modern music scene. For example, the legendary left-handed Martin D28.

Authentic Series. These are historically accurate replicas of vintage Martin acoustics, recreated with meticulous attention to detail in order to capture the sound and feel of specific eras.

Modern Deluxe Series. This series combines the best of both worlds. You’ll enjoy traditional appointments combined with modern craftsmanship techniques and materials.

X Series. This is Martin’s most affordable line of guitars, offering more budget-friendly options without compromising on quality. To keep costs down, this range is made in the brand’s Mexican factory and features laminate bodies.

Road Series. Designed specifically for gigging musicians, the Road Series is crafted to withstand the rigors of life on the road. These guitars feature exotic tone woods, Fishman electronics, soundhole tuners, and are pleked for precision. The SC models from this range are currently not available to order left handed.

Custom Shop. The Martin Custom Shop offers a range of acoustics perching at the very top of the brand’s craftsmanship. Or, for those seeking a more personalized instrument, there is also the option to design your own custom build.

Ukuleles. In addition to their renowned acoustic guitars, Martin also produces a range of quality left-handed ukuleles. Currently, the majority of ukes are available as left-handed models.
