While it’s not impossible to strum a guitar with your right hand if you are left-handed, you may find that you don’t have the same natural strength and dexterity. Left-handed electric guitars are specialty musical instruments as they have the opposite features of traditional guitars. At LAWK STAR Guitars, we offer quality left-handed solid body, semi-hollow body and hollow body guitars by top makers to meet your performance and sound demands. Our selection includes guitars by D’Angelico, Breedlove, Dean, Schecter and PRS.
Choosing a Left-Handed Electric Guitar
Wood Type:The wood that artisans use to make an electric guitar directly affects how it sounds and how long the strings vibrate. As you shop for a left-handed guitar, keep in mind that a guitar’s body may have a different wood than its neck or fingerboard. Body Type:Electric guitars generally have three body types: solid, semi-hollow and hollow. A solid body guitar has a flat body with no cavities within it. A hollow body guitar is similar to an acoustic guitar, but has F-shaped holes. A semi-hollow body guitar has a solid core, but hollow chambers and F-shaped holes. It produces a better sound at high volumes than hollow body guitars. Neck Type:One of the most important features of a guitar is comfort. Left-handed guitars have a variety of neck shapes and widths, which affect how comfortable it is to hold and how simple it is for your fingers to reach and move.
