    Default High End Left Handed Mandolin Sightings?

    They're a fairly rare breed, particularly F style. Tom Rozum told me about left handed Gilchrist; the name on the headstock was written in mirror image. I had an F style Stiver made, which I sold when I acquired my 2005 lefty Heiden F5. I'm curious what other folks have had, seen, or heard of. Well?

    Here's another. Tom Ellis made this one for me. The first Ellis with a double-flowerpot. A great sounding mandolin. BTW I was the owner of your Heiden F....but developed a penchant for '30s Martin guitars.

    Oh I know Doc. I've still got some of what I assume are your stickers on the case. I'm glad for you penchant for old Martin's. My gain. I'm sure enjoying the Heiden.
