Discover our master collection of left-handed Taylor guitars. Left-handed guitars are essentially a mirror image of your average right-handed guitar. This way, the thickest guitar string remains at the top. Left-handed Taylor guitars are expertly built to deliver quality sound, thanks to their impressive design and bracing. Using lasers, specially designed tools and other technology, Taylor Guitars blend traditional techniques with modern approaches to produce innovative guitars that are built to last. Our selection offers full-size and ¾ left-handed guitars so you can find the right fit for you.
To determine if it’s a left-handed guitar, look at the instrument face-on, vertically. If the thickest string is on the right, it’s a left-handed guitar. If the thickest string is on the left, it’s a right-handed guitar. Another way to tell is by looking at the pickguard if they have one. Pickguards on the right will normally signal a right-handed guitar, and pickguards on the left will be a left-handed Taylor guitar.
It is possible to restring a right-handed guitar for a left-handed person. Famous guitarists, like Jimi Hendrix, restrung right-handed guitars to invert the strings. Hendrix even played right-handed guitars upside down. However, because of the way the bracing inside the guitar distributes the sound and movement, buying an actual left-handed guitar will give a much more natural sound than flipping a right-handed guitar over.
