Well it took over 3 weeks to get here from Australia, but it's here! A new acquisition and one I've been looking for forever. I think I've only seen one other lefty in 20? years. Dubbed, "The poor man's Alembic" I wouldn't go that far, but it is a very high quality, boutique level instrument with a very unique preamp and configuration. I'll write a review soon. So far, I'm loving it:

Very cool, and very rare! I don't recall ever seeing another lefty before, and I've seen my share of eBay auctions, Reverb listings and other ads :)
