I want to flip the strings on my acoustic guitar to teach my girlfriend as a lefty. Are there gonna be any irreversible damaged to my guitar that would prevent me from bringing it back to righty eventually?

thanks in advance

Jimi did it, but then again he also set guitars on fire.

ya not really any risk besides the fact that u might need new strings. o and wrong forum but im not a douche so im obviously not not gonna report u cuz 85% of the time that people do that its bullsh*t and totally unnecesary
just get a reality tv show and then u can make millions being a **** up

Oh I didn't notice until now but you posted in the wrong forum. Try something like electric guitar/ accessories since it is about strings. Otherwise, just look at the threads.

2 things to consider, the bridge and nut. Both will have to be reversed to acomodate the guage difference. Both a relativly easy to replace so no permanant damage, The guy at the local music store I go to sometimes plays lefty but just flips the guitar. He doesnt change strings around although he can play both ways.

apparently the bracing underneath the top of an acoustic is usually assymetrical, so by flipping it over, it actually CAN cause damage to the guitar
