Description

We have a rare gem here for our left-handed players: a Maingard OM in Brazilian Rosewood back and sides and Alpine Spruce top. Marc Maingard is one of the finest builders you can find today, with his unparalleled construction and tone. Every guitar we have had of his has pleased us to no end. Marc's signature tone is full here, with bright trebles, complex mids, and controlled bass. This is a fingerpicker's dream come true. It isn't often that we get a left handed guitar of this caliber in the shop, so if you play left-handed and want the best of the best, look no further.

Admittedly, I can't run this one through its paces like I want to, but that doesn't detract from the fact that I can still recognize its incredible tone. This one will make some lucky lefty infinitely happy.
 
I apologize for the demo, but wanted to be sure that you could hear the wonderful tone of this instrument. I rarely see a beautiful handmade guitar for sale that is left-handed. This may be the nicest one you'll ever see for sale since owners tend to hold onto the good ones. The tone is perfectly balanced with great overtones.
