    By "electric" you mean 6-string guitar?

    I don't think its meant to be left handed, I think its just to put the tuners on the bottom to give more room between the necks

    I see what you mean, but generally the low frequency 'E' string on an electric guitar is attached to the closest machine head to the nut. In the picture, it would have to be attached to the machine head that's furthest away from the nut. Would this make a difference?

    If the E string is long enough to reach the tuner and wrap around the peg properly it should not make any difference. And here I though this thread was going to be about a double bass/electric bass guitar combo....

    Oh, BTW, Fender has been known to do something similar.
