These are all either left handed bases strung right handed or right handed basses simply flipped over. I thought it might be good to have a bunch of examples in one place.

I’m was adding Mono Neon as you posted that. :-)

I think it would be great if people keep adding more.

Haha, woops! Sorry to steal your thunder. He has a unique technique, especially with his slapping and popping (not to mention a hyperactive right hand).

I also just love his rendition of that bass line--I've posted it here before.

I forgot about Greta Brinkman.

I’ve never heard of Ron Perry, but now I have to check him out. And apparently I need to listen to some Susan Tedeschi as well. Damn!!!

There are much more worse fates in life :-) . Saw the Tedeschi Trucks band last week and they were on fire! easily one of my favorite bands of the last few years.
