Looking for a left handed Ernie Ball Music Man guitar? Well you’ve come to the right place!
Music Man is one of the world’s best known manufacturers of high quality guitars and basses. The company is a division of the Ernie Ball corporation, with all of the guitars being expertly handcrafted in California, USA.
Unfortunately quite a few left handed Ernie Ball Music Man guitars have been discontinued recently, which is a real shame as these are some of the best instruments I’ve ever had the pleasure of playing (and owning!).
Does Ernie Ball Music Man Make Left Handed Guitars?
Yes! At the time of writing, Music Man offers the Mariposa guitar left handed in 4 different finishes. This model is designed in collaboration with Omar Rodriguez Lopez, the guitarist from the Mars Volta and other bands.
There are currently no left handed Ernie Ball Music Man bass models offered,

Music Man Mariposa Left Handed
The Music Man Mariposa left handed guitar was designed in collaboration with Omar Rodriguez Lopez. If interested, you can find out more about him in my list of famous left handed guitarists.
The Mariposa features an offset lightweight okoume body, a roasted maple neck, and an ebony fingerboard that showcases pearlescent style block inlays. Electronics include two custom wound EBMM humbucking pickups with separate volume control for each pickup, controlled by a 3-way pickup selector switch that allows for variable humbucking combinations when needed. The pickguard is laser etched with an ornate design coordinated to compliment specific finish options.

Although the selection of left handed Ernie Ball Music Man guitars is quite poor at the moment, they have informed me that they do hope to offer more in the future. Fingers crossed! I’d certainly at least love to see a left handed Music Man bass make a return.
Music Man Website
The Music Man website doesn’t make it super easy to quickly see which guitars are available left handed. As a result I had to get in touch with the company to get a definitive list.
