Description

The 2010 Sheppard Madrigal we've got in the shop today is a special kind of beast. Not only is it a 12-string guitar in East Indian Rosewood and Engelmann Spruce, it's also south paw friendly! And it boasts basically every special feature and custom option that Gerald Sheppard offers. You name it, the lefty Madrigal's got it. Arm, rib, and cutaway bevel: check. L.R. Baggs I-Mix preamp and pickup system: ready to rock. Blue Paua rosette, back strip, and inlay: stunning. Deluxe "American Vintage" hardshell case and Mammoth Fossilized Ivory nut and saddle: you bet. Unfortunately for everyone in the shop, we aren't left-hand players, so we aren't able to bring out the full potential of this awesome creature, but from what we've been able to pick out sounds absolutely rich and resonant, with a low-end that is well-balanced and maintains pitch like a pro. This guitar is five years old, but to look at it you wouldn't guess it was older than five months; it's in almost mint condition. If you're a left-handed player who's tired of settling for cheaper guitars without all the bells and whistles that your right-handed brethren seem to have a monopoly on, this Sheppard Madrigal 12-string is seriously worth your time. We can say with confidence that there aren't many options on the market right now that can compare to this south paw powerhouse.

Objectively, this is a beautiful-looking, and -sounding, guitar; the kind that a left-handed player deserves.
 
I've never had to play a left handed 12-string, but I guess there's always a first time! As usual for Sheppard instruments, the workmanship on this guitar is flawless and it plays so easily, even upside down. If I were left-handed, I would buy it. There can't be many left-handed 12-strings of this quality out there to choose from.
