Original left handed Explorer Bass guitars have never existed. You know that. That’s why you are here.
Gibson Guitars first made Explorer basses in 1981. They have never been available in left hand. Their Chinese Epiphone brand never offered them in left hand either. I have never been able to locate a guitar brand anywhere in the world that makes a production left handed Explorer bass.
We have been making left handed Explorer basses for almost 10 years. It was the first Gaskell bass I did. I built it on the same body template as my 6 string Explorer variant. It’s a good size and very playable.
The GASKELL XBASS is 100% custom-built with the very best hardware and components in the world. You want an instrument to last the test of time? That’s only ever going to be a custom shop instrument. Now you can get a lefty Explorer bass for the first time, exactly how you want it, and no matter where you live in the world.
