Left handed guitars?
You could learn to play it backwards, like some of the best do/did.

Jimmi Hendrix played with a right handed guitar and he was left handed, he just flipped it upside down. My friend is right-handed yet he plays it left handed (by flipping it).

yes u can flip it or learn to play it right handed as i did,however if u kno ur strings wel enuf u can re-string it
I never understood why one has to do string picking/plucking with his dominant hand...but then I've never messed with a lefty guitar (I'm right-handed). If I were you, I'd go with the righty (I assume it's used) and give it a shot. If it doesn't work out for you, then sell it (you won't lose much if you didn't overpay) and get a lefty.

yea me too actually.im left handed but i do tend to do a lot of things with the other hand,like using a pair of scissors.id always wanted to play the guitar and wen i 1st picked 1 up i tryd to play right handed and havent gone back. i personally cant pluck with my left hand.i think that the chords are a pain in the but n i think im doin the right thing but using my dominant hand for them.
