Default Left-handed Gretsch single tom mount?

I know this might sound really nitpicky, but does Gretsch produce a lefty-version of their standard single tom mount that I can purchase?

I recently bought a Gretsch Catalina Jazz Kit and me being a left-handed player, I set up my kit in the left-handed configuration (including removing and placing the 12" rack tom suspension mount on the opposite end). But I noticed when I turn around the Gretsch single mount (I'm guessing the GBTH-SL model?), the wingut to adjust the tom arm's angle is on the outside from where I sit (on the reso-side of the bass drum). I mean yes, I could just get up and reach over to make adjustments, but I would like to have it more accessible on my side especially when I have to make quick adjustments during gigs.

UPDATE FROM GRETSCH FOR ANYONE ELSE HAVING THIS PROBLEM:
You can take out the carriage bolt and wingnut and turn it around 180 degrees- the assembly has a notch cut-out for the carriage bolt on both sides. You should be able to turn the wingnut to thte opposite side no problem.
