Dale learnt left handed handed but on a right handed guitar. However, he didn't re-string it, which helps create his unique sound. I had a set of strings on my Telecaster that needed replacing, so as an experiment restrung them for a left handed player. It took a little getting used to, but was fun. I might buy a dead cheap guitar and do it properly with a genuine left hand but!
