Dating back to its debut in the late 1970s, Schecter has been a name that commands respect in the music industry. By continually expanding and refining their range of instruments over the years, Schecter has secured their place as one of the most legendary luthiers. Not only does Schecter Guitar Research offer a fantastic selection of axes to suit all playing styles and skill levels, they also go the extra mile for southpaws with dozens of left-handed electric guitars to choose from. Plenty of Schecter's guitars have artist accolades, such as the Hellraiser C-1 FR, which is a frequent axe for Paul Allen. Paul's impressive list of credits include gigs with Adele, Jewel and Tim McGraw, as well as TV and film performances from dawn to dusk - literally, considering that he's appeared on Good Morning America and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Naturally, the Hellraiser is available left-handed, as are a whole range of signature models from Schecter's closest artist relationship, Jeff Loomis. Guitarist for Nevermore and an advocate of extended-range guitars, Jeff also plays non-signature Schecters like the Damien Platinum-7 and Platinum-8, which also come in leftie versions. If you're a beginner looking for your first guitar, check out the OMEN series. The OMEN-6 is perfect starter axe that makes Schecter quality accessible to anyone. These guitars also give you the option to try your hand at 7 or even 8 strings with the OMEN-7 and OMEN-8. Better yet, if you want to take it up a notch, all three string counts are available in and OMEN "Extreme" version with a mahogany body and quilted maple top. Whereas some luthiers only provide a few options for lefties, Schecter has gone to great lengths to give every guitarist the freedom to choose exactly the model you want - no matter which hand you favor.
When guitarists think of their dream instruments, Schecter Guitar Research ranks high on the wish list. Fortunately, Schecter's extensive catalog of left-handed electric guitars gives you plenty of choices for turning that wish list into a collection. Pro or novice, stage or studio - wherever you play, Schecter will satisfy.
