You got the badass GUITAR slung around your neck…
You got the kickass rock star POSES down…
You even got that guitar FACE going on!

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!

September 2023 Update: LeftyGuitarist has recently launched its own T-shirt store! Catering specifically to left-handed guitarists, this brand-new online store kicks off with five unique T-shirt designs.

There’s an exclusive $5 discount for the first 10 buyers to celebrate the launch. Use the coupon code “FIRST10” at checkout to snag this limited-time offer. And as if that’s not enticing enough, there’s also FREE worldwide shipping!

LeftyGuitarist Tees - On sale now

While the store is still very young, I’ll keep on expanding the collection. So far, there are 5 t-shirt designs, but there are plenty more to come.

Head over to LeftyGuitaristTees.com now and grab yourself a tee!


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 are 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 compared 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 in 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 the guitar the left handed way. Some also feature famous left handed guitar players.

As well as these lefty guitarist t-shirts, there are 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.

Buying gifts for the guitar player in your life? Or maybe you want to treat yourself. Check this list of the best gifts for guitar players!

Have a peek at these…

Zombie Rock Musicians

Left handed guitar shirts - Zombie Rock Musicians

Check price at:

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.

Ganesha rocks!

Left handed guitar shirts - Ganesha Rocks!

Check price at:

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?

Pandas of Death Metal

Left handed guitar shirts - Pandas of Death Metal

Check price at:

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 green version too!

Musical Mermaid

Left handed guitar shirts - Musical Mermaid

Check price at:

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!

Slimer Thrashin’ Mad

Left Handed Guitar Shirts - Slimer Thrashin' Mad

Here we have the lovable greedy guzzling ghost from the famed Ghostbusters movies. Here, he resembles Kerry King of Slayer, armed with a similar V-style guitar, a studded wristband, and raising the Devil Horns with his left hand.

King is known for playing B.C.Rich and Dean guitars.

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!

The Last Song of Autumn

Left handed guitar shirts - The Last Song of Autumn

Check price at:

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 sound waves; she’s ready to strike!

Rock On, Dino

Left handed guitar shirts - Rock On, Dino

Check price at:

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 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!

Monsta Bass

Left handed guitar shirts - Monster Bass

Check price at:

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!

Positive Grid Spark 40 Amp reviewed! Is it any good?

Rock Panda

Left handed guitar shirts - 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?

Techno Star

Left handed guitar shirts - 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 in the far reaches of outer space! Maybe C-3PO, R2D2, and BB-8 are in the audience somewhere…

Rock Beard

Left handed guitar shirts - 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!

Jimi Hendrix – Flag

Left handed guitar shirts - Jimi Hendrix - Flag

Check price at:

Here’s a cool-looking t-shirt of that most famous lefty guitarist; Jimi Hendrix! It’s a classic image of him playing one of his famed left handed Fender Stratocasters, printed with the US flag in the background. You’ll look great in this left handed guitar shirt!

Jimi Hendrix – Atlanta

Left handed guitar shirts - Jimi Hendrix - Atlanta

Check price at:

Another t-shirt of Jimi Hendrix! This time he’s playing one of his famed left handed Fender Stratocasters! I really like the retro look of this one.

Nirvana – Seattle Washington

Left handed guitar shirts - Nirvana Seattle Washington

Here’s a Nirvana shirt featuring Kurt Cobain’s famous lefty Fender Jag-Stang, as well as telling us the band’s city and year of formation; Seattle, WA in 1988.

Now ya got everything you need to know; go listen to some of their music!

And buy this t-shirt.

As You Are

Left handed guitar shirts - As You Are

These shirts that feature a particular person can sometimes 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…

Paul McCartney – Studio Time

A T-Shirt featuring Paul McCarney holing a left handed Rickenbacker bass guitar. The T-shirt's text reads "Paul McCartney" at the top and under Paul's image is his signature and the text "Live and Let Die".

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.

McCartney – World Tour 2018-19

A T-Shirt featuring Paul McCarney holding a left handed guitar. The t-shirt's text reads "Paul McCartney" at the top and "World Tour 2018-19" at the bottom. The photo of Paul is in blue and white. The background is red on the left of his image and yellow to the right.

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?!

Lazzy Teddy Bear Guitar Jam

Left Handed Guitar Shirts - Lazzy Teddy Bear

Is this Ted from the 2012 movie of the same name? Sure looks like him!

Anyway, here’s a teddy bear jamming away on what looks like an Ibanez RG series guitar. I bet he’s a fan of ’80s Bear Metal!

2001 A Space Odyssey

Left Handed Guitar Shirts - 2001 A Space Odyssey

Ever seen Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 movie 2001: A Space Odyssey?

Here’s one of the apes from the “Dawn of Man” scene from that movie. This ape has just found out he can hit stuff with his lefty Stratocaster! Aaaaaaarrrrgggghhhhh! Get out of the waaaayyyyy!!!!

Otis Rush – All Your Lovin’ Graphic T-Shirt

Left handed guitar shirts - Otis Rush - All Your Lovin'

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?!

#1 Albert King Classic T-Shirt

Left handed guitar shirts - Albert King Tour Album Concert T-Shirt 1

This shirt features a caricature of the left handed Blues legend Albert King playing his Gibson Flying V; 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!

Final Thoughts

Wow! It’s taken me a while to find and choose which shirts to include in this list, but here you have my choice for some awesome-looking left handed guitar shirts. I hope you like them!

I’ll update this page as and when I find new designs that I like the look of and think you might like too.

Which of these designs are your favorites? Did you find any other shirt designs for left handed guitar players? Let me know in the comments below!

  • Great post.  I love the great choice.

    Being a little more conservative I would go for 1, 4, 7, 9 & 21.

    i certainly agree that if you are into rock and guitars, then these are definitely your everyday wear.  It is good that there are so many to choose from.

    Hopefully they are all cotton and won’t wash out too quickly.

    Thanks for bringing these to us.

    • Thanks Geoff for commenting!

      Yes, it’s great that there are a lot to choose from, and I will continue to add others to this page as I find them, but only if I like them!

      According to each t-shirt’s corresponding webpage, they are all made from 100% cotton. However, the two Paul McCartney ones don’t say what they’re made of.

  • Hello there! I am not a guitar player nor am I left handed but I have to admit…some of these t-shirt designs (or actually a lot of them) are pretty cool! Some of these designs are really creative. I will definitely have to recommend some of these t-shirts to my friend who is a guitar player and is left handed. I am sure he will like some of these designs!

    • Hey Mike,

      Thanks for your comment!

      I don’t think it matters at all if you are a guitar player or indeed left handed to appreciate these t-shirts. The great thing about them is that they look good anyway, and they make great gifts!

      Be sure to send your friend over to this website 😉

  • Hello there! Thanks a lot for this article. Left handed guitarist are not really so common all round the world and I’m proud to be one of them. Actually, I’ve been looking for something that I can get to show to the world that I’m really proud of it and you just came up with this, aren’t you a genius? Thanks a lot

    • Thanks for your comment Philebur. I’m glad I can help with this post! Go ahead, show the world you’re a lefty guitarist! 

  • These left-handed Guitar T-shirts are really awesome. They are actually my brand and taste. The Jimi Hendrix – Pop Art could not stay away from my attention and moreover I am a fan of his music. Its front design is really captivating and can make you noticed by many. I am also amazed by their low prices but not promising to make a purchase now. However, the future will be brighter and permit me to keep your URL for more exploration and of course a future purchase.


    • Hi Akon,

      Thanks so much for your comments. I do think these are awesome as well! If you are a fan of Jimi Hendrix, then what better way to show your love of his music than to wear a shirt like that one.

      If you like that particular t-shirt, I’m sure it’ll still be available if you do decide to buy one in the future! 

  • There’s a point I’ve never considered, that lefty guitarists are not very well represented in visual art, including t-shirts. The ones you have chosen to highlight are way cool. Some I like more than others, but probably all appeal to someone. The Hendrix shirts are great, and as a panda fan, I gotta like that one too. 

    Thanks for the article and research. 

    • Thanks for your comment, Darrin.

      Yes, the artwork on some of these t-shirts are fantastic, and it’s great that we lefty guitarists get some shirts that represent us. Unfortunately due to the number of us left-handed folk, we’re not so well represented in the choice we have of many things that depend on which hand we use!

      That’s partly why I want to share all that guitar related stuff for lefties here on this blog!

      Thanks for reading!
