Custom crafted Left Handed Tenor Guitars

We now offer two of our popular electric archtop Tenor guitars available by Custom Order in Left Hand player versions. Rather than increasing our price for creating our Left Hand guitars, we create them in pairs. When we receive 2 orders of a matching model, we initiate production. Production and delivery time combined is 9 weeks. This is our way of keeping costs for custom Authentic Archtops to a minimum. Life is hard, why be penalized for being left handed. If a second order isn’t received within 7 days we initiate your order so not to keep you waiting.

To personalize your guitar even more, your personal initials are incorporated into the serial number.

When you pay your deposit on your Custom Left Handed guitar, We create a build ticket. If a second matching model isn’t ordered in 1 week , we initiate production so you’re not left waiting too long.

“The great thing about this guitar is that it responds perfectly to adjustments for different turnings and string gauges which only says that the guitar is precisely built. I have owned other guitars that literally can’t be tuned because the original measurements of the instruments themselves weren’t accurate when they were built. I’m sure that your guitar builders have run across some old guitars like that. Old “REGAL” tenors and also “MARWIN” tenors (both from the ’50s) were nice looking but very hard to tune because of the neck being inaccurately placed. It was a “built in” problem that couldn’t be remedied simply by moving the bridge. On the other hand, This guitar is dead on. No matter how any individual player wants to set it up for themselves, this guitar responds and once it’s done it is in perfect tune all the way up the neck. Any serious tenor player out there would love to have an instrument like this.”
