Hendrix did this. I suppose if you played like this your whole life you could do it, but I can't see what benefit it would make other than supposed tone change (like how Hendrix's pickups faced the opposite way, it gave him a different tone).

That just makes it ten times harder. If you want to play upside down switch the strings around.

its a thousand times easier playing upside down chords are easier, solos, pretty much everything but you gotta work your ass off to get through the first songs you learn

Dan Swanö does this. There was a guitarist in Atheist that also did this. I can't recall the name at the moment.

I know a guy who is lefty but plays a righty bass with his right hand as the fret hand. He's damn good too; in one of my buddy's Lez Zepplin cover bands. He just decided to learn that way so he could pick up most basses and play it.
