As You May know I have wanted one of these for some time
https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Grass-Roots-G-V ... 0005.m1851

However,

My heart sank when I saw the price,then My anger rose when I saw the second bass.

THEY ARE BOTH IDENTICAL IN ALL WAYS EXCEPT SHAPE/COLOR!....so why is the lefty version over
$800.00 More....(My guess.... because they can) its really a shame. I'm proud to be a lefty,but
it's not like I asked for it so why should My wallet have to suffer the consequences.

I agree 100%, I also seen it's the same seller! Normally 10% upcharge this is just wrong.

I did a little digging and still a rip off but if you look at Amazon Japan you will see the left handed version still at 45% mark up from the same color model in Right Handed.
