I just bought a new guitar off of Ebay and somebody decided to string it left handed without making any alterations to the nut or the bridge. Do you think there would be any damage to the nut from having the thicker strings tightened onto the thinner strings place or should the nut still be usable? Any help would be appreciated. Not too knowledgable about the repair process.

Swapping the nut would help, but I believe Hendrix used one without doing so, so it should be fine.

You might have some tuning issues if you don't swap the nut and you'll probably have to redo the intonation. I don't think it would really damage the nut...

Yeah I am worried about the tuning issues. I can't play left handed. Hell I can barely play right handed. Thanks for all the responses.

Just swap the nut, and re-do the intonation... it should be fine after that
