It's doable but probably not worth it.
Might be easier to try learning to play it as a righty instead of flipping it around. If you haven't done it yet, try playing it as a righty and see if you feel good with it. If not, then focus on getting a lefty guitar.
Here's what you're facing:
-leave the guitar as-is and just flip it
Doing this means the strings will be in the opposite order to what Rocksmith will display, control knobs are in the wrong place and No cutaway to reach the higher frets on the guitar.
-pay to have the guitar set-up for a lefty
Spending more than what the guitar is worth (most likely). Control knobs are still in the wrong place and No cutaway for the higher frets
-buy a lefty guitar
May be more than what you'd want to spend but it'll be a better experience... that is, unless you think you could get comfortable playing a righty guitar.
These may not be high-end models, but they tend to get solid reviews and aren't too pricey. Quality of these would be about the same as those Epi les paul jr's:
Lefty SX strat clone in pink for $80
Lefty tele clone in red for $120
Lefty les paul clone (7/8 scale) for $100
The strat is 24.75" scale (aka gibson scale) and the tele is 25.5" scale (aka fender scale).
The les paul is a short scale at 23".
Guessing they're on sale because of the pink color, but even so that's damn cheap for a lefty guitar.
They have other colors on the site if you want to poke around. Those are just the first few ones I found on their sale page. Here's all their lefty models:

I didn't have time to post yesterday, but hopefully some of you figured out how to stack the 15% ebay coupon with the $400 sale price of the Marshall amp. Woulda put it around $340, with free shipping from Sweetwater's ebay front.
If not, well... knock back a few and forget i said anything.
