While writing about Gibson’s electric guitars, I was initially going to include left handed Gibson acoustic guitars as well.

However, when looking at what lefty Gibson acoustics were available, there were so many that I thought it’d be much better to give them a post of their own.

I thought Gibson was generous when it came to electric guitars. However, when it comes to left handed Gibson acoustic guitars, there are a massive thirty-five available at the time of writing. That’s from the range of sixty-three right handed models!

Great stuff!

Who Are Gibson Guitars?

Gibson G-45 Acoustic Guitars

If you play guitar, you’ve more than likely heard of Gibson guitars, but if you haven’t, here’s a brief history.

The Gibson Guitar Corporation began in 1902 in Kalamazoo, Michigan; it was founded by Orville Gibson, who originally called his company the Gibson Mandolin-Guitar Mfg. Co. Ltd. which produced Orville Gibson’s original designs.

Unfortunately, this time was short-lived, as Orville Gibson was in and out of various hospitals, spending several extended periods there and in 1918, aged 62, he died of chronic endocarditis.

The Gibson company carried on and later went on to invent the Archtop guitar. Gibson also produced flattop acoustic guitars and hollow-bodied electric guitars.

In 1944, Gibson was purchased by Chicago Musical Instruments, and four years later, a man named Ted McCarty was hired, who, in 1950, became Gibson’s President.

He also famously went on to become Paul Reed Smith‘s mentor, founder of PRS Guitars.

By 1969, Chicago Musical Instruments was acquired by Norlin Corporation, so ownership transferred to them until 1986 when the company was struggling, almost going out of business. Norlin Corporation was then acquired by Henry E. Juszkiewicz, David H. Berryman, and Gary A. Zebrowski.

This time was seen by some as a decline in quality, blaming the company’s senior officers for pursuing financial success over the quality of their products.

The company was renamed Gibson Brands, Inc. in 2013, after acquiring and partnering with various audio technology companies, but by 2018 the company filed for bankruptcy.

Later that year, Gibson began to reorganize and restructure, focusing on the business of selling guitars. They closed down the Gibson Innovations division which sold audio equipment outside of the USA.

James “JC” Curleigh, President and CEO of Gibson Brands, Inc.

Henry Juszkiewicz also relinquished his role as CEO, and the following month James “JC” Curleigh was brought in as Gibson’s new President and CEO. Curleigh himself is a guitar player, and many believe that Gibson are addressing the issues that contributed to Gibson’s decline under Juszkiewicz’s presidency.

What Do I Think of Gibson Guitars?

Gibson is one of the classic brands. There are so many guitar players over the years who play them, that it’s almost impossible not to have heard of them.

Naturally, when I first got into guitar playing, I’d buy guitar magazines and read interviews and features on guitarists that I liked, finding out what kind of gear they used. Many of my favorite players played Gibsons.

Some of the guitarists I was into back then included Jimi Page, Angus Young, Slash, Gary Moore, B.B. King, and Tony Iommi; all well-known for playing Gibson guitars.

Jimi Hendrix was also a guitarist who was pretty much impossible to miss, as he was always featured in many articles. When I first saw a photo of him playing a Flying V, it really stuck in my mind, as I was used to seeing him playing Fender Stratocasters.

Ever since those early days of learning to play guitar back in the 1990s, I’ve been a fan of Gibson and the guitars they produce.

Are All Gibson Guitars Made in the USA?

Gibson is known for making all of its guitars in the USA across two different locations. Gibson’s acoustic guitars are made at a factory in Bozeman, Montana.

They make solid-body guitars, such as the Les Paul and SG models at their Nashville, Tennessee factory, which opened in 1974.

From 2000, Gibson made semi-hollow and hollow-body guitars in Memphis, Tennessee, but moved their production to the Nashville factory in 2018.

Almost all Epiphone Guitars, owned by Gibson, are made in China.

Final Thoughts

At the time of writing, there are 35 left handed Gibson acoustic guitars! That’s absolutely huge!

It’s really cool that Gibson can offer us that many left handed acoustic guitars. The design of an acoustic guitar is pretty symmetrical, so in many cases, it should be fairly easy for a guitar company to offer their guitars in both orientations. Unfortunately, not all guitar companies do though.

What do you think about Gibson acoustic guitars? Let us know in the comments below.
