Have you noticed the increasing number of left-handed guitarists lately? Unfortunately, it can be quite challenging to find left-handed guitars in regular guitar stores. However, today, left-handed guitarists no longer have to settle for improvising on standard guitars. The lefty guitar market offers a variety of models and types specifically designed for left-handed players.

Approximately 10% of the population is left-handed, and many of them possess great talent and intelligence. In the past, many left-handed guitarists had to adapt to playing on standard guitars, but this often required modifications such as changing the guitar strings and adjusting the tuning keys. Even with these adjustments, the guitar would still appear upside down and backwards.

Fortunately, this issue has been addressed, and guitar manufacturers have shown interest in catering to left-handed guitarists. Individuals with a dominant left hand can now choose from a wide selection of guitars designed specifically for strumming with their left hand and fingers. In fact, the available models and options are plentiful and of high quality. Since these guitars are specialized products, be prepared to pay a premium for them.

In previous years, it was difficult to find guitars suitable for left-handed players. Left-handed guitarists had to make do with playing on standard guitars and transpose the chords accordingly. This situation undoubtedly disappointed many guitar enthusiasts. The awkward appearance and difficulties in playing were discouraging factors for aspiring musicians.

Let’s delve into the problems a bit more. Firstly, the body cutout of the guitar doesn’t conform to the shape of your body. The reversed horn cutout makes it challenging to reach the higher frets. Strumming can be problematic because the whammy bar is located above the bridge. The tuning buttons are situated at the end of the headstock. So, if you were accustomed to operating them for a long time, you would encounter numerous difficulties. Eventually, these frustrations may become overwhelming, leading you to consider giving up and discarding the guitar.
