Customer testimonials

Some of the kind words my customers have shared:

I am the proud owner of a Triggs New Yorker purchased from Vic ( Lefty Guitars Only) .Vic is that rarity amongst us because he is such an affable, professional and accommodating guy. It was a very pleasant experience in dealing with Vic. The New Yorker is a visually arresting guitar to look at and has a sound to match. It lifts my spirits every time I play it.Triggs is really the pre eminent luthier if you want the nearest thing to a D”Angelico.  Scott Chinery (Blue guitar collection) said that Trigg’s D’Angelico copies sound just like the old master’s guitars .Vic, I try not to visit your site too often because I get an overwhelming urge for GUITAR ACQUISITION SYNDROME i.e ( GAS for short). Warm regards, JC, Melbourne, Australia

Vic at Lefty Guitars Only has been a pleasure to deal with in a world that is otherwise very unfriendly to lefty guitar players. I ordered a custom shop Strat and a custom order Les Paul Historic and both are amazing. I am very picky and Vic answered all my calls and all my emails promptly and never got frustrated with me – always there to help. He really knows his stuff and is a super nice guy on top of all that. Everything arrived as expected and no issues. Highly recommend his shop!! — EK, CA

Lefties look no further. You just hit gold …”Lefty Guitars Only” IS the ONLY place for superb, beautiful lefty guitars. I couldn’t be more happy with my purchase. Vic nailed it right on the head with his description… An absolute pleasure to deal with. So glad my son is going to RISD another great reason for a visit to R.I. — RO’C, NJ

I got the guitar (PRS Custom 22) today, finally! I don’t know where to begin…it’s AMAZING! The finish, the weight, balance, tone, playability, it’s super comfortable…looks killer!
This is my first PRS ever…but it’s not going to be my last, that’s for sure. I’ve finally found my dream guitar brand, after buying and trying 20-30 guitars for the last 10 years. Thank you again Vic, for letting me buy this amazing guitar. I don’t know what the guys at PRS are doing at the factory, but it sure is magic! I’m SUPER satisfied Vic! — FA, Norway

Over the last year I have visited Lefty Guitars Only many times! During these visits I have always been invited to play as many guitars as I like, and spend as much time as I’d like. Vic always tries to find the perfect guitar for your needs, and your budget. Vic’s patience while I exhaustively played or listened to guitars never wore thin- he truly loves helping a player find the guitar of their dreams! Needless to say after buying two in stock guitars and having Vic order me three more, I have found my ultimate guitar store! Honestly- I don’t think I’d ever need to visit another store or website! “LEFTY GUITARS ONLY” DOES IT ALL! — FG, Massachusetts

Just wanted to thank you for our dealings this past year. My purchases of the Huss and Dalton acoustic and the beautiful PRS whale blue electric worked very well. I’m also glad we were able to do the swap on my Les Paul goldtop for the mint green Strat. I’m also enjoying my PRS amp you sold me. I’ll look forward to a few more purchases this coming year. You do a great job with the unique and cool looking inventory on your website. — DT, Virginia

I recently purchased a guitar from Vic at Lefty Guitars Only. It was a great experience from beginning to end and I feel Vic went over and above on the service side in addition to sending me a great guitar which I’m very happy with. I just thought I would share my experience with the fellow lefties out there and think it’s great to support businesses like Lefty Guitars Only who serve left handed players and do it passionately. — JP, North Carolina

I bought a 61 Relic Strat off Vic, it was a very pleasant experience, and I would and will buy from Vic again. Froggy in the future?? Maybe? GAS is an expensive addiction, as it’s a constant in my life, as well as many of you other guys as well I see. — MW, Texas

I have visited with Vic on a number of occasions. He is a wonderfully accommodating guy with a beautiful selection of guitars. Anyone looking to buy a lefty guitar should add LeftyGuitarsOnly to their list of resources. — JE, Vermont

The Larrivee arrived yesterday. WOW. What a beautiful guitar. I took it to show my friend last night, and he was extremely impressed with the guitar as well. You were right; the fit and finish are outstanding. And it sounds beautiful right out of the box. I cant tell you how excited i am about it. I cant wait to get home from work, to play. I can’t say strongly enough, how pleased I am with your service. You surpassed any expectations i had. Your responsiveness, communication, and promptness in dealing with everything was exemplary. Thank you SO much, for all your help. If there is any place you would like me to write a review or testimony, I would be delighted to do so. Or if you ever have someone on the fence about a purchase, I would be happy to provide a glowing reference. Thank you, again, for everything, Vic. I am thrilled with my guitar, and completely satisfied with my experience dealing with you. — SF, Idaho

Just a quick email to let you know I received the guitar today. The guitar is stunning! I’ve played her for a few hours now and I am smitten, the feel and sound of the guitar is amazing. Anyway, many thanks it has been a pleasure from start to finish to deal with you and it’s just a pity I couldn’t leave feedback on your ebay account stating as much. Many many thanks — SC, UK

My 1st 12 fret was acquired recently from Vic at LeftyGuitarsOnly, a beautiful Huss and Dalton 00-SP Cocobolo/Engleman.

The wider neck took a little getting used to, and did someone mention overtones? I assumed it was the wood, but the construction theory makes sense. This also took some getting used to. This little gem makes palm muting almost a necessity and when played clean, opens a whole new world where each string can be muted or left to ring – with great effect.

Simply a killer size that can be finger or thumb picked (or both simultaneously) anywhere.

To me, the response to pick attack is the real benefit. This smaller guitar just seems to offer much more expression than a dreadnought. This one gives up a little bass and volume to my D-28, but can be well balanced much easier with left hand adjustments.

It took me decades to realize that there’s more out there than a D18/28, which turns out great since it’s like a *really new* experience playing when I pick it up.

I have not touched another guitar since opening the H&D case – thanks Vic. — TH, North Carolina

Vic, the guitar arrived safe and sound today. I struggled to tune it, as I really just wanted to stare at it. I mean, I had high expectations from the photos, but even my expectations were blown out of the water, aesthetically speaking. As I tuned it up, I would hit a chord or single note. My god, I couldn’t believe the sustain. As I picked through the limited finger picking songs I know, I just couldn’t put her down. To say I’m pleased is an understatement. The guitar looks, feels and sounds perfect for me. Thanks again. — JT, NC

Just wanted to let you know I am super-pleased with the guitar! It has been fantastic and I appreciate everything you did to get it over to me. Thank you so much! — CP, AL

Vic, I have just three words for you: IT’S A MONSTER!! Fantastic neck! Killer tone! …….well, that’s more than 3 words. Thanks so much, I love it! Can’t wait to put it thru its paces during band practice tonight. Thanks again, so glad that I found your site! — MG, CT

Vic, I picked up the package last night at FedEx, and let it acclimate overnight. Then, as my wife said, “like a kid on Christmas morning,” I opened her up. WOW! I think you hit it right on. It’s not only gorgeous, but it sounds great! A smaller, more comfortable dreadnaught is a perfect description. Great projection, easy to play and comfortable. I am truly more impressed than I was with Martin, Gibson or Taylor. My hats off to all at H&D. It’s good to know that there are small, hands on builders creating quality instruments in the USA and including us lefties — MM, PA (Huss and Dalton CM Custom cocobolo)
