OK so, I'm going to withhold my scathing commentary on how much sense I think that makes. And BTW, I play left handed guitars, left handed. So, I know how tough they are to find, let alone stringing...

Dude, you've got the guitar strung right handed, and upside down.

To top that off, the picture of the saddle is taken from the completely wrong angle to be able to tell WTF is going on.

Sez you.

I can't imagine how I could play a steel guitar, without owning a left handed steel guitar. So here, you're making a moot point, against a non issue.

Without a trace of doubt, or a moment's hesitation, I'd grab the EJ-200-SCE.
