Now, what about the cool clothes to go with those that will set you apart from the rest of the crowd?
Wouldn’t it be great if we lefties could find some cool left handed guitar shirts to wear? There aren’t that many out there, but they are definitely out there if you look hard enough!
I think it’s fair to say that most guitarists enjoy wearing t-shirts, especially music related t-shirts that have a unique design, and rarely seen anywhere else. So what better way to show off your individuality than to proudly wear some cool looking left handed guitar shirts!
It’d be a lie to say that left handed guitarists have a vast range of guitars to choose from in comparison to right handed folks. The same can be said for apparel; t-shirts, hoodies and the like… I’d say we have even less choice when it comes to showing our lefty pride on the clothing we wear!
So I’ve scoured the internet to find some cool looking left handed guitar shirts that I’d be proud to wear. Some of the designs are aimed squarely at lefty guitarists, but some of them just feature images with left handed guitars in them or someone playing a guitar the left handed way. Some also feature famous left handed guitar players.
As well as these lefty guitarist t-shirts, there’s also electric guitar t-shirts and acoustic guitar t-shirts. Some are available in men’s fit, some in women’s fit, some unisex; some ship to the US, some to Europe. No discrimination; I just wanted to find cool guitar t-shirts!
I did find quite a lot more than the ones listed here, but quite frankly, I just wasn’t very keen on the designs very much.

Have a peek at these…
T-Shirt 1 – Zombie Rock Musicians
What’s cooler than a zombie rocking out? Not a lot, I reckon, and this one looks like he’s got plenty of attitude! Do zombies actually have the brains to be able to rock out?! I guess this one does!
I just love the way the design on this shirt is drawn, from the checkered shoes and striped top to the low slung lefty guitar! This zombie looks like one devilish rock star! Its face, with its tongue out and the stitches in the forehead all add up to one wicked-looking t-shirt! The spattered background suits the comic book feel of the shirt too.
T-Shirt 2 – Ganesha rocks!
Ganesha, Hindu god of new beginnings, success, intellect, wisdom, remover of obstacles… and ROCKING OUT!!! Who knew?!!
Ganesha is probably best recognized by the fact that he has an elephant’s head, but in this shirt he can also be recognized by his left handed strat-style guitar. He looks pretty Zen here, demonstrating self-restraint and inner peace, but the raised devil horns and his ratty friend on the mic say otherwise!
This ancient god has probably been rocking out throughout the ages! With four arms as well, I bet he sure can shred some! 16-fingered tapping anyone?
T-Shirt 3 – Pandas of Death Metal
Here we can see a left handed panda holding what appears to be a left handed Gibson Flying V. Do pandas have a particular handedness? Who knows, but this panda looks quite comfortable with this axe, as though playing guitar is second nature to it.
To me, it doesn’t particularly look very Death Metal, but it’s definitely a cool looking print and logo all the same. There’s a pretty cool looking green version too!
T-Shirt 4 – Musical Mermaid
This lefty mermaid, with a serene look on her face and a left handed acoustic guitar in her hands, looks like she could be a gentle acoustic music lover. However, her undulating red hair looks reminiscent of the snake hair of the Medusa of Greek Mythology!
Let’s not forget, that mermaids could well have come from the Sirens of Greek Mythology too… Maybe she’s not so innocent after all!
T-Shirt 5 – The Last Song of Autumn
The woman on this shirt looks like she could be the coolest female assassin!
Although she is playing a Shamisen (a traditional three-stringed instrument from Japan), rather than a guitar, the blind Japanese woman playing it is clearly left handed! Could it be that the Shamisen is hiding a deadly weapon within? Maybe with her heightened sense of hearing, she can locate her target with soundwaves; she’s ready to strike!
T-Shirt 6 – Rock On, Dino
Rock on indeed, Dino! The dinosaur on this t-shirt looks like it knows how to have a good time! Look at the joy on its face! Or is that a snarl or even a roar? Aaaarrrghhh! Big scary sharp teeth! Help!
Either way, I’m sure it’s playing some earth-shattering rock music!
Notice though, how the lefty Flying V-style guitar it’s holding has only three strings. Maybe it’s got something to do with the fact that this dino has only three fingers! Watch out for those sharp claws!
T-Shirt 7 – Monsta Bass
What? Is this seriously a monster? It doesn’t look like a scary monster to me… More like a scared monster! Maybe it’s scared of the monstrously pounding bass emanating from its teeny tiny speaker… Hmmm, on second thoughts, maybe not.
Either way, this is a fun looking shirt; who knows what it’s trying to say!
T-Shirt 8 – Rock Panda
Wow! This panda looks a little angry! I think it must be playing some kind of angry rock song. Hear it growl! GRRRRRRR!!!!
This is the second t-shirt in this list that features the normally lovable panda. Pandas are usually seen to be gentle, docile creatures, but by the looks of it, this one knows how to ROCK!! Why not show everyone your inner Rock Panda with this humorous t-shirt?
T-Shirt 9 – Techno Star
Here we have some kind of robotic android amplifier, and it’s playing a left handed guitar! I guess it must have been programmed by one of us lefties. Is it playing some Techno Rock?
I reckon it looks like it could be performing at an interstellar music festival at the far reaches of outer space! Maybe C-3PO, R2D2 and BB-8 are in the audience somewhere…
T-Shirt 10 – Rock Beard
“Where is the guitar?” I hear you ask. It’s hidden somewhere behind that unstoppable, cascading mass of facial hair. But even with all that beard in the way, nothing is gonna stop this guy from playing his guitar!
Not even beer, which he’s obviously had at least a couple of. One thing I’d warn this guy about though is to remember to keep his guitar dry!
T-Shirt 11 – Slimer Rocker
Here we have the lovable greedy guzzling ghost from the famed Ghostbusters movies. Armed with a Flying V style guitar, a studded wristband, and raising the Devil Horns with his left hand, Slimer looks like he’s coming for you; maybe even to eat you! Anyway, he looks like he’s not to be messed with and he most definitely ROCKS!
This is a cool looking print showing both humor and attitude!
T-Shirt 12 – Famous Left Handed Guitar Player Shirt
Now you can show your appreciation for these four iconic famous left handed guitar players! Jimi Hendrix, Paul McCartney, Tony Iommi, and Kurt Cobain. All lefty legends!
T-Shirt 13 – Jimi Hendrix – Psychedelic Poster T-Shirt
Here’s a colorful looking T-shirt of that most famous lefty guitarist; Jimi Hendrix! It’s a real cool image of him playing live, printed in a psychedelic color scheme. A great looking left handed guitar shirt!
T-Shirt 14 – Jimmy Essential T-Shirt
Aside from the incorrect spelling of “Jimi”, which for some reason has been changed to “Jimmy” for this shirt (at least it’s not printed in BIG letters!), I really like the photo from which this print is taken.
Jimi Hendrix had an unforgettable stage presence and he oozed charisma in his performances. This shirt perfectly captures the spirit of his live performances.
T-Shirt 15 – Jimi Hendrix – Ink
Here we have the very recognizable, classic head shot of Jimi. What more is there to say? He’s the most iconic guitar player of all time!
Yet another Jimi Hendrix t-shirt!
Are you into Jimi Hendrix? Are you into Pop Art? Then why not get this t-shirt? It’s got a calm, cool looking Jimi nonchalantly looking at you on the front. What more could you want?
T-Shirt 17 – Jimi Hendrix – Voodoo
One last shirt featuring Jimi Hendrix (I think four is enough for now).
Do you like to stand up next to a mountain? And then chop it down with the ledge of your hand? Are you a Voodoo Chile? Then you might like this Jimi Hendrix t-shirt – “Voodoo”.
Basically, just another cool image of him playing the guitar; it’s as simple as that. The color scheme on this one is pretty nice too.
T-Shirt 18 – As You Are
These shirts that feature a particular person tend to be just a simple design and this one is no different. It’s an image of a left handed guitar player, whose face you can’t see, but there’s no mistaking that this is grunge icon Kurt Cobain. Not much to it, but still pretty cool.
Oh well, whatever, nevermind…
T-Shirt 19 – Kurt Cobain – Fan Art
Similar to the Jimi Hendrix Pop Art t-shirt, but with Kurt Cobain’s face instead. Get it if you like it!
T-Shirt 20 – Paul McCartney – Studio Time
I think this t-shirt featuring a Wings era Paul McCartney wearing headphones and playing a lefty bass guitar in front of some recording equipment, looks very cool!
Its retro design and color scheme suits the image really well. The bottom reads “Live and Let Die“, Wings’ amazing song written for the James Bond movie of the same name.
T-Shirt 21 – Paul McCartney – World Tour 2018-19
Here’s a second Paul McCartney t-shirt. Yet again, it’s a monochrome photograph of our Macca; this time he’s playing a six-string guitar. Ever present are some headphones… What is it with headphones that Paul loves so much?!
T-Shirt 22 – Otis Rush – All Your Lovin’ Graphic T-Shirt
This t-shirt features a great shot of Otis Rush playing live at a blues festival with his trusty Gibson ES-335.
A cool looking t-shirt with a cool looking guitar player! What more do you need?!
T-Shirt 23 – #1 Albert King Classic T-Shirt
This shirt features a caricature of the left handed Blues legend Albert King; one of the Three Kings, and at one time claiming to be B.B.King’s half brother!
Show your appreciation for this Blues icon!
T-Shirt 24 – Albert King – Blues Power
This second Albert King t-shirt, and the last t-shirt in this list, has a print of Albert King during one of his live performances. Singing with passion and giving his soul to his music, the Blues; this shirt really captures the moment. King is singing his heart out with his customary right handed, upside down Gibson Flying V in hand.
True Blues Power!
