You're probably better off trying your luck with Carvin or a custom builder.

I am a left-handed guitarist. I reaally want TOSIN ABASI's TAM10 signature guitar.

Someone please tell me I can call up Ibanez and get them to make me this guitar left-handed without paying another 2 grand.

Unfortunately, like most mass-produced instruments, they're almost certainly not going to give you any options beyond what they planned to offer, without paying a whole lot extra to have it made in the custom shop. Of course, if you do that, the instrument you're gonna get is far higher quality than the mass produced one. It actually is very difficult and not cost-effective for a company to have a single guitar made in a special way, out of thousands being mass produced, mostly by programmed machines, in a giant factory in Asia.

Still though, it might be worth calling them up and talking to a rep, just to see. They may have plans already in place to offer a left-handed version later. But don't be surprised if they give you that answer: "can't do any special options on production models, but the Custom Shop will happily make anything that you want, for a price".

Agile might be another viable option.

I hate to say it, but you could probably get away with getting an RG8L and putting a set of Ionizers and a pickguard on it. They're extremely similar guitars. I didn't like the TAM10 at all when I tried it. It felt exactly like an RG8.

As the others said, Agile and Carvin are other options but you will pay well over a grand. But with Carvin you'll get a better guitar than the TAM10 can ever hope to be.

just so there is some understanding as to why. ibanez (or any maker) has to retool to do left handed guitars. this means that production is down until the machines are all setup to do this. this means lost time which in production is a bad thig. the only way they can justify doing this is to do a large run of lefties (or whatever non standard item is being made). my guess is that there isn't enough demand to justify this for that guitar. for this reason they have to do requests like yours in the custom shop and of course that means money.

this kind of crap was why i learned to play right handed (yes i'm a leftie). back when i started (late 70s) lefty guitars were very rare. while more common now you are really limited in models and even colors available.

Why the hell do u want that ugly ass guitar

His band is shit and his playing is fucking random and annoying.

I don't even want to get into what i think of him outside his playing. The guys a hack. Plays with steve vai but fucking just chugs a bass line? Sad.....

Honestly the only reason i think he got famous is because he is a rare breed. A black person playing prog rock....
