I recently watched a Joe Bonamassa concert on PBS. At one point he played one like this, which I assume was the original. He had it set up for right handed playing.

Someone from Larrivee could probably confirm pretty quickly whether this came out of their shop (officially or unofficially/built by an employee).

Looks like Dan Erlewine built it. He built one for King in early 70's and looks like he built some copies. Down a ways in article it talks more in detail about the guitar that this is copy of.  https://www.vintageguitar.com/3813/albert-kings-flying-vs/

That was a very interesting article, I did not know Albert King played his v "upside down". Now I have to watch some video.

Yes. Played it upside down but didn't switch the strings around. The technique was part of what made his sound different. Saw the guitar differently plus pulled DOWN to bend strings. He had those piercing bends that were pretty much his voice. You can hear that influence in SRV. Saw him twice. Once was in, shall I say a culturally appropriate place. An old chitlin circuit place in Atlanta called The Peacock.  That was one sweaty, gritty, blues show.
