If you’re a left handed guitarist I already know your biggest complaint. There just aren’t as many options when it comes to guitars as there are if you play right handed. I’m a lefty, I know how frustrating it is when you can’t try out your best mates guitar or when you walk into a music store to browse new guitars and you’re lucky to find 1 to 2 guitars you could actually play, let alone like. Sure there’s a few positives, hardly anyone will ever pick up your guitar, and most of the time you will be the only lefty in the band meaning you can achieve great on stage symmetry. But all things considered it’s not easy being a left handed guitarist. But what about if you prefer to build you own, are left handed guitar kits even harder to find?
Lefty Guitar Kits
It’s also pretty much a case of slim pickings when it comes to left handed guitar kits, with even less options available due to low demand. Many manufacturers don’t even offer left handed guitars and if they do they tend to run out pretty fast. The few left handed kits I have bought over the years used inferior timber or came with a right handed nut. Which in itself isn’t a huge problem, but removing the but and ordering in a left handed one is an extra complication most of us just don’t need.
The Benefit of Custom Orders
We’ve got your covered.
We don’t warehouse our products in bulk. We do stock a select amount of our best selling kits but for the most part our guitar kits are made to order, meaning you can choose left or right handed for any of our kits at no extra cost and no extra delays because you’re left handed and awesome!
Check out our store for a full range of guitar kits available in a number of different timbers and of course orientation.

Here’s a few questions we have received over the years about left handed guitar kits.
Will there be delays with ordering a left handed kit?
As your order will be custom made it makes no difference whatsoever if you are left or right handed. You will receive your guitar within 30 days. If you prefer we do keep a limited number of guitars in stock meaning in some cases you guitar will be delivered within 10 days.
What about wiring? Is there any difference?
In most cases yes, your typical wiring diagram will need to be mirrored to show a different orientation but the good news with our kits is your volume and tone pots come pre-wired meaning far less complications when it comes to following wiring diagrams.
Should I just play guitar right handed?
Hell no. Jimi Hendrix, Tommy Iomni, Kurt Cobain and Albert King didn’t give in to the right handed world and neither should you.
