The acoustic electric guitar has always been one of the world's most popular instruments, though playing left handed was often an additional challenge. There was a time when a left handed acoustic electric guitar was a very rare find, indeed, leaving many left handed players struggling to learn or playing right handed guitars upside-down. Luckily for the lefties out there, times have changed. These days it is easy to get your hands on the guitar that best suits your hand preference. Playing a guitar that is best suited to your hand strengths will have your chords ringing out beautifully in no time. If you're in the market for a left handed acoustic electric guitar, one thing is clear, you're looking for amplification. These guitars all feature the benefit of built in pickups that allow you to plug in to your amp whenever you are looking to fill the room. Many left handed acoustic electric guitars also include onboard tone controls, allowing you to further customize your sound. Acoustic guitars come in a variety of sizes; are you looking to jam on a large Dreadnought, or did you have something smaller and slightly more portable in mind? This is certainly an important factor to consider. The shape of the body changes from guitar to guitar. To some, this may seem like a purely aesthetic choice, but a cut-away design is a must if you're looking for easier access to the upper frets of your instrument. Material also plays an important role in the sound of your guitar, with different types of wood bringing their own distinct tones. If you're after a warm sound, you may want a cedar guitar, whereas if you're interested in a punchier tone, mahogany may be right for you. In the end, it comes down to personal preference, there's no right or wrong choice, only options for different needs. You've always wanted to play guitar. It's a fantastic hobby and a great way to remain creative. With more choices now than ever before, an acoustic guitar will be a great addition to your life.
