Cases and gig bags for left handed Les Paul guitars

Hard Cases

Due to the non-symmetrical shape of Les Paul and double-cut PRS guitars, most shaped (fitted) hard cases meant for these guitars will not fit left handed versions. The solution for left handed LP and PRS style guitars is an open-cavity guitar case.


Gator GWP-LP Titan Series ATA Impact Waterproof Guitar Case. This is a heavy duty flight case constructed from impact proof lightweight NK-7™ resin with Power Claw latches. This is one of the few fitted heavy duty cases that will fit both right handed and left handed Les Paul-style guitars.


For aftermarket cases this is could be the ultimate case for your left-handed LP. My personal rating is 10/10 for this one.

The 3i-4214-56 by SKB is a shaped flight case that accommodates most Les Paul guitars and similar styles, with a platinum plush interior that provides total neck support and protection on all sides.


It will fit right handed and left handed guitars equally well. I keep this case in stock.


My personal rating for this case by SKB is 9/10.

Soft Cases

There are many soft cases for Les Paul guitars. All are made for right handed guitars specifically. So long as the padding is equal for top and bottom of the case they will also suit left handed guitars.

SKB 1SKB-SC56. This is an excellent soft case for Les Paul and PRS style guitars and is the one I would most recommend for a lefty PRS or Les Paul if a soft case is preferred. This case by SKB is extremely well made and the padding is just as good as a hard case. Also extremely well priced, this case is highly recommended. My personal rating for this guitar is 9/10.

Gig Bags

There are lots of gig bags by many brands that are suitable for left handed LP or PRS style guitars.


REUNION BLUES RB CONTINENTAL. Reunion Blues, located in California, USA has been making instrument bags since 1976. Their RB Continental gig bag is possibly the most protective guitar case on the market. The product information on their website says: “The RB Continental’s water-resistant ballistic Quadraweave exterior surrounds a lightweight Flexoskeleton protection system of 1″ thick high-density foam and EVA impact panels that offers enough protection to survive a 40-foot drop without so much as a nick or scratch.”

XTREME BAGS AUSTRALIA TB315C. This is a heavy duty guitar bag by Xtreme Bags Australia. It is extremely well made and offers superior padding and protection. Unlike a lot of generic gig bags the fit of this bag is excellent for an LP or PRS shape and the bag can be hand-carried or slung like a back pack. For under $100 these are excellently priced for the superior level of protection they offer.


I recommend this bag as a good run-around bag for the working musician. These bags are a stock item.
