There is no other guitar like this in the world, let alone left handed. The Gaskell FRANKENSTARTER is an original Gaskell left handed guitar, new for 2023. This guitar is nothing short of amazing, in every way. 


If Gibson and Fender had a love child this might be it! The FRANKENSTARTER has the single coil bridge sound of a Fender Stratocaster/Telecaster with the humbucker neck sound of a Gibson Les Paul. The blend of these plus the three-part body creates the most amazing, full, shimmering, and rich sounds with sonic properties you just cannot get from a slab body single coil guitar or humbucker guitar alone. 


Chords are chunky and biting, perfect for every kind of music from Funk, Blues and Pop, to Rock and Metal. Every held note just sings and wants to sustain forever. This guitar is perfect for rhythm playing. This guitar is perfect for lead playing. You don't need to do anything to this guitar. Stock standard, this guitar is ready to go. It sounds incredible whether played clean or overdriven. I have the additional pleasure of saying "this guitar is not available right handed."


Built into the price is a Custom Shop setup with full fretwork included. This brings playability up to what you would expect from a much more expensive guitar. If you play this guitar and don't think it is nothing short of amazing then there is something wrong with you

This could be your ultimate lefty guitar!
