Over the last ten years or so, Funko Pop! toys have gained massive popularity! You can find toy figures based stuff from movies, TV, music, video games, comic books, anime, cartoons, books, and sports. So with that, I’m gonna take a look and see what Funko Pop guitar figures are available and if there are even any lefty ones to buy.

Table of Contents

Who Is Funko?

Funko is a toy company that designs and produces toy figures based on different characters from popular culture. The company began in 1998 when founder Mike Becker started making Funko bobbleheads called Wacky Wobblers. The first of which was the fast-food restaurant mascot Big Boy.

In 2005, Becker sold his company to his friend, current CEO, Brian Mariotti, who then expanded on the different licensed brands. Later in 2010, Funko debuted a new range of figures based on characters from DC Comics. The way that these figures were styled was what would later be the style of their POP! range, which they started selling the following year.

What Is a Funko Pop Figure?

Probably Funko’s most popular toy line are the Funko Pop! Vinyl figures, which are based on the Japanese Chibi style. There are literally thousands of different Funko Pop figures available, which includes the Pop! Rocks range. The Funko Pop! Rocks range includes figures that are based on popular bands and musicians.

Let’s have a look and see what cool figures are available!

Left Handed Funko Pop Guitar Players

I managed to find a few lefty guitarist Funko Pop figures. Not that many though, considering the many thousands of Funko Pop! figures available out there, but at least there are some!

Some Funko Pop figures can be bought new for less than $10; some, however, are no longer in production, so have increased in value, so to get one would cost quite a fair bit more than that $10 price tag. These are now collector’s items, with some collectors willing to part with hundreds of dollars to get hold of certain figures!

Of these lefty Funko Pops that I’ve featured here, many of them are now collector’s items, so they can command pretty high prices. Most of the other Funko Pop guitar figures featured here are a lot more affordable, though.

Kurt Cobain

Funko released four different Kurt Cobain Funko Pop! Rocks figures back in 2017; my favorite being the Kurt with Sunglasses figure. It’s quite rare, however, so expect a fairly hefty price tag!

Funko Pop! Rocks #64 – Kurt Cobain with Sunglasses

Funko Pop Guitar Figures - Kurt Cobain (Sunglasses)

This is my favorite of the four Kurt Cobain figures. This one features him playing a red Fender Mustang, and wearing his famous white Christian Roth Series 6558 sunglasses. He wore these sunglasses in what was to be Nirvana‘s final photoshoot, taken by photographer Jesse Frohman in New York, 1993.

Funko Pop! Rocks #65 – Kurt Cobain – Smells Like Teen Spirit

Funko Pop Guitar Figures - Kurt Cobain (Smells Like Teen Spirit)

This figure has Cobain in the outfit he wore for the Smells Like Teen Spirit music video, recorded on August 17, 1991.

He is also playing his famed 1969 Lake Placid Blue Fender Competition Mustang, which was known to have a black single coil pickup fitted at the neck and a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails at the bridge. The guitar also features in the video.

At the time of writing, this figure is not too rare, so it can be found fairly easily.

Funko Pop! Rocks #66 – Kurt Cobain MTV Live and Loud ’93

Funko Pop Guitar Figures - Kurt Cobain (Live and Loud '93)

Nirvana performed at Seattle’s Pier 48 on December 13, 1993, while promoting their third album In Utero, and this figure shows what Cobain was wearing that night. Though the figure here has a pink/purple guitar, Cobain actually played a Sonic Blue Fender Mustang during the performance.

The concert was edited and broadcast on MTV, but we had to wait 20 years to see and hear the full version, which wasn’t released until September 2013; signifying the 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s third album.

The figure is fairly common, so you should be able to find it quite easily.

Funko Pop! Rocks #67 – Kurt Cobain – MTV Unplugged ’93

Funko Pop Guitar Figures - Kurt Cobain (Unplugged '93)

This figure features Kurt Cobain dressed as he was during Nirvana’s legendary live recording session at the MTV studios in New York on November 18, 1993. His iconic green cardigan which he wore that day was sold at auction in October 2019 for a staggering $334,000! Apparently, it had also never been washed!

The live album Nirvana MTV Unplugged in New York was to be Nirvana’s final full-length recording, recorded a few months before Cobain’s untimely death, which went on to become one of the most famous live albums in Rock music history.

Cobain played a rare Martin D-18E (only 302 were ever made), which was plugged into a Fender Twin Reverb amp, so it wasn’t truly unplugged; this fact was most evident on Nirvana’s performance of David Bowie’s The Man Who Sold the World.

Jimi Hendrix

Funko has released a few different Jimi Hendrix Funko Pop! Rocks figures.

Funko Pop! Rocks #244 – Jimi Hendrix Maui Live

Funko Pop Guitar Figures - Jimi Hendrix (Maui Live)

Released in 2021, this Funko Pop! depicts Hendrix in his Live in Maui performance on July 30, 1970.

A double CD and triple LP set was released in 2020 of this concert, both of which also include a Blu-ray video documentary titled Music, Money, Madness … Jimi Hendrix in Maui, along with the 16mm color film shot of the two afternoon performances.

Funko Pop! Rocks #53 – Jimi Hendrix Monterey Pop!

Funko Pop Guitar Figures - Jimi Hendrix (Monterey Pop Festival)

This Pop! Rocks figure was released in 2017; it’s of Jimi when he performed live at the Monterey Pop Festival on June 18, 1967.

This figure commemorates Hendrix’s legendary performance, which is remembered primarily at the conclusion of the song Wild Thing, where he lays his Fender Strat flat on the stage, proceeds to squirt lighter fluid over it and then sets it on fire! After that, Jimi continues to smash the thing up!

Another fairly rare figure, commanding quite high prices at the time of writing.

Funko Pop! Rocks #54 – Jimi Hendrix – Woodstock ’69

Funko Pop Guitar Figures - Jimi Hendrix (Woodstock)

Also released in 2017, this figure shows Hendrix as he was during his performance at Woodstock on August 18, 1969.

While his outfit resembles what he was wearing that day, his guitar, however, seems to be a different color to the one he used for that performance; the upside down right handed 1968 Olympic White Fender Stratocaster, later given the name Izabella. It’s strange then that Funko has given this figure’s guitar a natural or butterscotch finish.

The performance at Woodstock is remembered for Hendrix’s historical rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner.

Funko Pop! Rocks #01 – Jimi Hendrix Purple Haze

Funko Pop Guitar Figures - Jimi Hendrix (Purple Haze)

Released in 2011, the Jimi Hendrix Purple Haze figure was the very first in the Pop! Rocks series. This Jimi Hendrix figure is wearing his famous military jacket and probably his iconic guitar; the 1968 Olympic White Fender Stratocaster. Looking online, however, I can’t find any photos of him with both military jacket and white Strat!

This being the very first Pop! Rocks figure, is pretty rare, and at the time of writing is worth quite a lot of money! It’s amazing really, how much these figures can go for, considering it was originally sold for $8.95!

There was also a 2012 “Metallic Chase” version that is, at the time of writing, estimated to be worth more than $2400!
