I feel like a guitard

I'm left-handed, but I'm torn as to whether I should invest in left or right-handed instruments. Any musicians care to provide some direction?

I'm basically talking guitars here.
On one hand (pun intended), it would feel more natural to play left-handed. On the other, I could very much cut down on costs and play anytime, anywhere with any odd right-handed guitar sitting around.
I met an incredible musician who advised I go righty because he felt he could have been even better with his dominant hand on the frets. Billy Corgan's dad raised his son to play that way. Hendrix played a righty guitar upside-down. Paul McCartney looks odd playing his lefty.
Anyway, this is something I hope to extend into playing bass as well.
Help my confused little soul before I plunge an investment down on the lesser of two good choices.
