Lambtron, I've actually checked with Ishibashi on the availability of a lefty block jag (and even showed them Taniguchi's link of the block jaggies) but unfortunately, they revealed that the model is exclusively available through Taniguchi. My first jag was purchased from Ishibashi and had a very good impression of their fast service and all, so I was hoping that I could get the block jag from them. The extra costs incurred were solely due to engaging a third party to help me make the purchase since Taniguchi doesn't deal with International orders. Thus, I had to pay for domestic shipping in Japan, re-packing, EMS shipping to my country, bank transfer fee, and the third party's commission (for doing all the arrangement, etc). Unless you have a friend in Japan or is personally travelling to Japan, there's no way to get that lefty block jag without special arrangements.
By the way, Lambtron...do vintage lefty jags come with a mute as well? And are the mutes made left-handed too? I'm contemplating to add a mute to my white jag to complete the look 😈
As for the artic camo 'duvet', it's just a huge piece of cloth with a camo design that I bought from a local DIY store that sells all kinds of cloth, materials, accessories, etc for your own handiwork. I don't sleep on it though 😆
