(Lefty) surf trem guitars?

Im looking for any companies that make lefthanded jazzmaster/jaguar copies, or even with a surf trem. If there arent any, then what companies make guitars like this righthanded that i can buy then flip? If lefty fender jazzmasters werent so expensive i'd get one of those. I know jay turser makes one with a mustang body and a surf trem righthanded, but i still want to know if there are any other options. Thanks for any help!

I found some lefty stuff a while ago and posted about it here:

Don't know if there are any lefty jags etc. on those websites, but it's a starting point.

You might dig around and see if you can find an SX SJM/Liquid or a Douglas Corvis in lefty. Rondo Music sells both, but I don't see any lefties on their site at the moment.

Corvis:



SX Liquid (one of my favorites):

Depending on your budget, you could probably build a lefty Jaguar for half the price of a new one. It'll still be pricey, but at least you won't have to flip it.

What's stopping you from flipping a Squier VM Jag? You could just flip the bridge (should replace it with a Mustang bridge anyway) and drill in a new strap button and a new nut. Boom, for $300 you have a wacky lefty Jag!

I might get the corvis 625. I'm hoping that next year rondo music will sell them left handed again, but if not I'll just get a right handed one and flip it.
