My daughter wants to play guitar...

I have 3 guitars she could use but they're all standard, right-hand configurations and she's left-handed.

My wife thinks I should teach her to play right-handed. Since she's never played before, it won't be like she'd have to unlearn anything.

However, I'm concerned that I could be potentially limiting her later on because she might not ever fully develop the dexterity she might have otherwise developed if I had just gotten her a left-handed guitar to start with.

You can buy a cheap left handed guitar for less than $100 bucks at a pawn shop. A decent learning guitar to see if she will stick with it before buying her a better one. In the end I would leave it up to her. Go to a guitar shop and have her play a left handed guitar and a right handed one then let her decide. I just know from personal experience I quit playing out of frustration when trying to learn right handed. There is a steep learning curve for playing the guitar and the first year is more about perseverance. (very easy to get frustrated)

Excellent.

I suck at piano but personally, there isn't a finer musical instrument in the world.

So she does have the desire and talent.

Why would you want to hamper that?

It's your daughter.

If you have 8 she could play you have 1 you could sell.

Yes?

Agreed. I would love to learn the piano one day. Plus knowing the piano will greatly help her with guitar. Basically the same layout but guitar is built in octaves

The cheapest lefty I've found was $139. Believe it or not, there aren't as many lefty sticks out there as you think. Our guitar center has about 300 used guitars - they had FOUR lefty and all were over $400.

I've looked online but I'm wary with guitars - I've gotten burned on that before. I want to play it before I buy it.

That's actually a very good idea.

That's not unique. That's inherent to playing the guitar, regardless of which hand is dominant.

I really hope that one day I can just dedicate a solid 3 months to piano.

It is truly sad that we don't have many huge names in the music industry that utilize piano currently AFAIK (granted you've got your Ben Folds, Regina Specktor, Rufus Wainwright) but nothing that compares to Billy Joel or Elton. Bummer.

For what it's worth, I took a guitar class in college, and I really felt hampered by being forced to play right handed. I'm very much left hand dominant, and I just didn't have the dexterity in my right hand to play well at all. I really struggled.
