Martin D-1 Lefty Reviews
As a left-handed guitarist, I have made a hobby out of scanning the net looking for the few left-handed models out there. If you are left-handed, GOOD LUCK. Each year seems to usher in fewer and fewer choices. After purchasing (and rapidly selling) an offshore instrument made by Johnson, I decided to move towards the Martin. While Martins are still very traditional guitars, they are flawless in construction and DO NOT charge extra for left-handed. I purchased this guitar from Musician's Friend for around $800. (including hardshell case).
Before purchasing this guitar I travelled to 4 large music stores -- while I saw HUNDREDS of right-handed acoustic instruments, there were only 5 lefties. Guitar Center in Va Beach had 0! If you are in the market for a lefty, I would try Musicians Friend, Adirondack Guitar or Music 123 on the web. If you don't mind paying top dollar, try Southpaw Guitar. Good Luck!Big Kev rated this unit on 2003-11-06.
