10 Best Left Handed Electric Guitars at Dolphin Music

Ibanez ORM1
If it’s style and comfort that you’re looking for, the Ibanez ORM1 is exactly what you need. Inspired by notable guitarist and songwriter Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, the ORM1 just stands out from a crowd, and that is just from its appearance alone. This left-handed model is available in a beautiful arctic white finish with deep red pearloid pickguard, black headstock and chrome hardware. The ACH blade humbucking bridge pickup, adjustable Gibraltar III Bridge, lower string tension for easier fret-work and a single volume control knob make the ORM1 a great choice for beginners who are after an entry-level instrument with a bit more “flair” than the generic starter guitars. White pearloid block inlays on a contrasting rosewood fretboard simply add to this guitars already irresistible looks, and at the incredible price of £275 this choice certainly shouldn’t break the bank.

Gibson Les Paul Traditional
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 Heritage Cherry Sunburst (RW) £1,849.00            
Fender Standard Telecaster
Taking it down a peg, we have the classic Fender Telecaster. 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 Telecaster 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 Telecaster, you simply can’t go wrong.

Indie Guitars Visual DCE
An electro-acoustic option for those multi-faceted guitarists is the Indie Guitars Visual DCE. This guitars aesthetic features are what seem to be the most appealing, probably due to the magnificent Dao wood that Indie have used on this model, producing a very subtle tone and remarkable pure acoustic sound. The combination of a mahogany neck, the natural Dao wood and rosewood fretboard with contrasting white inlays give this guitar fantastic character, so beautiful that I almost can’t imagine anyone playing it. With a pre-amp 4-band active EQ and multiple electronic controllers, the Visual DCE is perfect for guitarists who are simply all about the sound, quality and the just the plain enjoyment of playing.

Ibanez RG370DXZ Tremolo Series
Clever, clever Ibanez, the shape of this beast alone is enough to tell you what it’s good for. With the basswood body, 3-piece maple neck, sharktooth inlays and Cosmo Black hardware, Ibanez have managed to bring to life… the dream of the “metal head” guitarist. Edge-Zero II tremolo system with PS3Fe, Ibanez INF2 and INF3 humbucking pickups, an INFS single-coil mid pickup and a 5-way switching toggle. Available in the menacing gloss black (body and headstock) with rosewood fretboard. Fans of Ibanez and their RG series will not be disappointed by this impressive and very reasonably priced guitar.

Shown in Gloss Black (RW) £399.00                                      
Fender Standard Stratocaster
The Fender Strat, another iconic guitar, played and cherished by a countless and counting number of guitar heroes. Featuring the standard 3 single-coil Strat pickup arrangement, 1 volume, 2 tone control knobs, a 5-point pickup switching blade and tremolo bar. For those of you after a fairly “low key” guitar with excellent sound quality that is easy to alter to your own personal playing needs, the Standard Strat is the guitar for you.

Shown in Black (RW) £419.00                                                 
Ibanez AS73 Semi Acoustic Guitar
This hollow body semi-acoustic guitar is actually rather exquisite. The Artcore Mahogany set-in neck, maple body, Quik Change tailpiece and chrome hardware are just a few exterior features that make this guitar so appealing. With the ART-1 Bridge, ACH1 and ACH2 humbucking pickups, which are mounted on sustain blocks for decreased feedback, the AS73 is just as beautiful “under the hood” as it is to look at.

Shown in Ivory (RW) £329.00                                                  
Gibson Les Paul Studio
Les Paul performance with a modern “no frills” attitude, so we’ll just trim the frills. 490R and 498T humbucking pickups, tune-o-matic bridge, vintage tuners, period buttons, 2 volume, 2 tone controllers, 300k linear volume, 500k non-linear tone and 3-way switchcraft pickup toggle. This model was originally designed for studio artists and combines that amazing Les Paul fat and sweet maple-and-mahogany tone with the no-nonsense practicality of a studio guitar.

Indie Guitars Tree of Life
Where does the name take you? To the same place that the terrific inlays do, into the woods with candles and rainbow bands hoping for world peace. Featuring a solid Grade-A cedar top, the Indie Tree of Life DCE electro-acoustic guitar is brilliantly sculpted and in addition to having rosewood back, sides and fretboard, features a nato mahogany neck. Die-cast gold tuning pegs, abalone and mother of pearl inlays. The Tree of Life comes with a battery check button and an Indie Artec EQ system consisting of bass, treble, volume and presence controls. Producing a warm and subtle tone but is also able to project enough for live performances.

Shown in Natural Satin £300.26                                              
Peavey Predator Plus EXP
An extremely versatile guitar with a longer-than-average upper cutaway, giving this model the clean “swept-back” design. The Predator Plus EXP features sealed die-cast tuners, master volume and tone controls, dual humbucking pickups, 3-way pickup toggle and licensed Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo. Available in the eye-catching metallic blue, you won’t have to worry about going unnoticed.
