10 Best Left Handed Electric Guitars at Dolphin Music

Fender Standard Telecaster
Since the 1950's all musical genres have relied on the feeling, playability and raw tone of the Fender Telecaster guitars. The left-handed Standard Telecaster combines old school technology with new; you get the original Standard Telecaster body with medium jumbo frets, powerful single-coil pickups, shielded body cavities and a 70's-style headstock logo. Not too expensive either, the left-handed Standard Telecaster is certainly a great pick for any leftie.Shown in Lake Placid Blue
Gibson Les Paul Classic T
Les Paul, the name pretty much says it all. Manufactured by guitar giant Gibson, this Les Paul electric guitar is simply an ‘icon’ in the entire world of music. That may have something to do with the guitars unbelievable looks, the undeniably superb electronics and hardware or perhaps its obvious proven track record. This Gibson features a Grade A-mahogany body, two genuine ’57 classic humbucking pickups with covers and a TonePros Kluson vintage-style tuner. With figured acrylic trapezoid inlays, rosewood fretboard, 2 volume, 2 tone Gold Speed control knobs, I cant’ see anyone investing in this bad boy unless they are experienced enough to appreciate it, or they simply just have money to burn.Shown in Green Ocean Burst

Taking it down a peg, we have the classic Fender Jaguar. Fender, being probably ‘the’ most well-known name in guitar land, always manages to produce instruments that are reliable, versatile and easy to understand. This Jaguar is available in Fenders classic brown sunburst finish, vintage style. With timeless features such as Fender Ping Standard Cast/Sealed Tuning Machines, standard 6-saddle string-through-body bridge arrangement and a 3-position pickup switching blade, with the Jaguar, you simply can’t go wrong.Shown inShown in Brown Sunburst
Martin LX1E
An electro-acoustic option for those multi-faceted guitarists is theMartin LX1E.
