Vintage do their own version. Very cheap and wouldn't be a complete pain to flip...I guess :?

I just received a reply from JHS with regards to making a lefty "Fool" I am not sure why it is on their website as Vintage don't
even make a right hand version!!!!!!!! WTF.
Below is the reply.



Hi Richard,

There are no plans to make the VS6MRF at all, in either left or right handed.

Sorry!
