Is there a special guitar for a right handed guitar player?

I am going to buy my son a guitar for Christmas and he is right handed, I was unsure if they made right and left handed guitars.

All guitars are right handed. The right hand is used to pluck the strings while the left is used to finger the notes. Left handed guitars can be specially made.

The majority of guitars are right handed so you should be fine. When holding the guitar a right-handed's fretboard would go to your left, a left handed would go to your right. Wouldn't hurt to double check you have the right one at the checkout though.

The vast majority of guitars are for right-handed players. Virtually every model and make is available. Left-handed guitars are far more rare, and those are the "special" ones.

They actually do make right and left hand guitars. However, most standard guitars are made for people who are right handed. Usually any good music store will have someone on hand who can answer questions of that nature including what would be the proper size and weight for your child's age range.

Since your son is right-handed, he doesn't need a special guitar because the majority of guitars are designed for a right-handed player as the majority of people are right-handed. They do sell left-handed guitars for left-handed players, but for your son you don't neeed to worry about getting a special guitar.
