It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll, but it seems like it's always been a little longer if you're a left-handed player. There was a time that it didn't matter if your were a beginner, or a guitar legend like Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi, if you were left-handed, it was difficult to find a guitar to suit your needs. Often guitarists were forced to buy right-handed guitars and play them upside down! Imagine being Paul McCartney, arguably the most recognized name in the history of popular music, and having to scour the globe looking for a left-handed guitar? It seems outrageous, and thanks to Gibson guitars, it's also a thing of the past. Gibson's line of left-handed guitars offers everything you'd expect from an electric guitar - just flipped. These guitars are left-handed versions of some of Gibson's most popular models. Take, for example, the Left Handed 2013 SG Standard Electric Guitar. The SG is world famous, cranking out some of the riffs in the biggest bands the world has ever known. This left-handed guitar features all of the iconic SG elements, including the double-cutaway mahogany body, and Gibson's '57 Classic humbucking pickups that offer seriously vintage bite to your tone.
Maybe the classic look of the Les Paul is more your scene? Then check out the 1957 Les Paul Goldtop VOS Left Handed Electric Guitar. This guitar is a near exact recreation of the iconic 1957 Les Paul Goldtop, flipped for lefties. Not only is it an absolute joy to look at, but with Gibson's Burstbucker pickups, it is able to deliver every last subtle variation of the classic humbucker tone. If you're looking for a truly special guitar, this Les Paul is definitely worth your time.
The days of left-handed players struggling to find a guitar for them are over. Thanks to Gibson, you can have an absolutely amazing guitar that is ready to play whenever you are, no flipping required!
