: Hi, If there's anyone who knows specific information about how should be built a lefthanded doublebass. I heard that is not enough to fix an already built one.

It would cost quite a bit to properly covert a right-handed bass to left-handed play; the top would have to be removed to accomplish this. A true left-hand bass is a precise mirror image of a right-handed bass; of particular concern is the shape of the top, the bass bar, and the sound post.
