#198398 left handed 1617

I bought it locally hoping to get back to a deep bowl on the cheap. I got a nut pretty easily, but do I need to change the bridge out or can I flip it?

If I do need a bridge, are they still available?

you should just string it up with no problem
ovation at one point did a lefty saddle then they no longer did it just using the righty saddle
I never encountered any intonation problems of note
