Very definitely it can go Left Handed, all it takes is reversing the backboard. The imprinted writing will be reversed as well, but that is unimportant.

So this lift has completely replaced my footstool; after four weeks or so I love it. The suction cups don't slip when I'm playing; however, when I put the guitar back on the stand, where it leans back, sometimes after 5 minutes or so the top suction cup(s) will become unstuck. Has anyone else experienced this and if so, what to you do? For the moment I've taken to laying the guitar down on my bed with the lift attached. This solves the problem.

As long as all four cups don't come loose, causing it to drop to the floor, reattaching one or two loose ones is a matter of 5 seconds' time.

True. I just recently figured this out (I'm slow). sometimes if I leave the guitar on the stand for longer periods, it will drop to the floor. It still only takes about 30 seconds to re-attach completely.

No impact on my guitar's French polish so far.
