Anyone think I could restring this for a lefty? My son wants an acoustic guitar for his birthday, and the instructional stuff would be great--but he is completely left-handed.

For instructional stuff, check out justinguitar on youtube or justinguitar.com (it's free for a huge lot of it).

As for making a guitar left-handed, you'll need to reverse the bridge and the nut. The nut is glued in and probably won't come out in one piece. The bridge may or may not be glued in. I'd suggest taking it to a guitar shop for the work. It may cost you $20 for the nut (new nut and installation). I don't know about the bridge. Even then, the pickguard will be in the wrong spot.

I'm a lefty and I play right-handed. I like that I have better control over the hand that does the fretting, but I'm not remotely good. To be GOOD, it's going to take literally thousands of hours of learning and practicing. Just a heads up.

At this price point, I don't expect anyone would enjoy playing this instrument for very long. Cheap guitars are a lot better than they were years ago but they're still not great, and steel strings can be rough on a beginner. Might be better off looking for a better instrument and buy it used.

As a lefty player, I will second that.
To me, the typical "righty" setup favors left-handed players as your left hand does the dextrous work on the fretboard, while the right hand is only involved in much less demanding strumming.

I bought a used Yamaha for 80 bucks off Facebook marketplace, successfully played Happy Birthday for my baby girl on her birthday last month! Big Grin

I bought two of these for my twins when they were on sale for $100 a while back. These guitars are not only very playable, they are well built and as good intonation as any acoustic I've ever owned and I've owned dozens over the years all across the price spectrum. They are better than similar priced offerings from Epiphone/Fender/Washburn/Takamine, all of which I've owned and all of which are laminate top as opposed to solid like these.

In closing I highly recommend this acoustic, they are great little guitars for anyone, newbie or experienced. They both played well out of the box, acceptable action, even the strings are decent (no mention of the string brand). Keep in mind that Tom Scholz played a $100 import acoustic on Bostons first album according to him.

Thanks everybody for chiming in. It's really hard to find starter sets for left-handed players. I actually wondered about whether a flipped guitar would make more sense. Seems to have worked out for that Hendrix guy.

Funny ... on Amazon ... the magic word "Solid" (Spruce top) magically disappeared for the same product.
https://www.amazon.com/eMedia-You...B07GZ67HRL

Also another version from this brand (w/ a cuyaway) on Amazon received comments from someone complaining it is a laminate top.

So ... don't fall for it yet just because you thought you are getting a solid top guitar. Do your DD. Even if they allow return it is a hassle if you have to do that. FYI.

The profile of the neck (how thick/thin/contoured, etc.) also matters a LOT in addition to the "Nut Width" and "String spacing at the bridge/saddle" spec. Looks for these numbers when checking out guitars.

I assume you are interested in Steel String acoustic guitars. Nylon strings guitars usually have a wider nut width than steel strings if you go for that.
For steel strings "1-11/16" and "1-3/4" inch nut width are most common. There are some that comes in "1-7/8" inch as well (mostly designed as a fingerstyle guitar).

But many big/fat fingers are playing "1-11/16" nut acoustics without any issue. Your technique is the key here. Grab some guitars in your actual hands with someone who is more experienced as a start and go from there. You may not need to worry about "guitar for fat fingers" if you have the right technique.
