Sterling by Music Man produce a range of instruments licensed by Ernie Ball Music Man and built overseas in Indonesia. They offer a range of guitars and basses modelled after their Music Man siblings but at a much more affordable price range.
Unfortunately despite having a selection of really interesting guitars and basses, Sterling is one of the few companies that don’t offer much of a southpaw selection. Lefty bassists have a couple of lovely 4-string to choose from, but guitarists are out of luck. The company did previously offer the JP60 in a left handed model, so you may be able to find a used example.

The Sterling website doesn’t have a lefty specific section, and the left handed models are hidden fairly obscurely. Good thing we put together this article for you then!
