Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask, this looked like the best place to post this question:

I'm planning on buying this ukulele: http://folk-instruments.musiciansfriend.com/product/Lanikai-LU21-Standard-Ukulele?sku=512519

However, I'm left-handed.

Would it be OK to re-string it for a lefty? And by "OK", I mean there would be no problems putting the strings on, no difference in sound quality, etc.

Thank you very much.

I think you'd need to file the nut.

You may not even have to change anything at all on a cheaper instrument like that. You'll probably be OK just restringing it backwards.

Your right, in fact, on my ukulele I didn't even restring it, the 2 outside strings are roughly the same gauge and so are the 2 inside strings. So rather that "stringing" it in reverse, I "tuned" it in reverse

If you like reentrant tuning (High G, GCEA), it should be fine. If you like low G (gCEA) tuning, then you might have the file the nut. I doubt it, though--cheap ukes probably aren't built to that kind of tolerance.
