A quick reference video that shows the main points of how I restring my guitars - decades of experience have made me optimize this process. You may do it differently, and that's okay too.
Tools you should have:
- Wire cutters
- String Winder

    Nice tips! Thank you! Gone restringing the hard way)

    I'm embarrassed to say that after 50 years of guitar playing, this is the first time I saw a string winder in action.

    A contentious issue, some people will lose their minds to see you remove all the strings at once, I always thought that was forbidden and bad for the neck.

    This is so useful, thank you Fran!!! I didn't know about the harmonic thingy

    That guitar looks tiny! (31 inches?) It looks the size of a ukulele.

    Hi Fran , nice ax !! Good tutorial , however I would never – ever use a string winder on my Strat . I have ' lockers ' so it makes it a little easier .
    Later 😃 Dreamer 

    Hey Fran!
    I also put as many winds on each post till the string gets way past the waist. So due the tension the winds want to move upwards and will get pressed tighter together, increasing the friction for better stability. With 09-42 I end up with 2,4 winds on low E / 3,5 on A / 4,5 on D / 5,5 on G / 6 on B and 7-8 on high e.

    Thanks Fran. I use the strings in the green packet. Thanks for the advice. I will try and copy the way you tune up. (Novice guitar player).

    I assume that's a child's guitar or a travel guitar because it doesn't look much bigger than a vintage Vox Mando-guitar which would have 12 strings in that same general physical real estate!

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars good 'un says:

    Keep a pair of crappy wire cutters around just for cutting the strings when you change them, because oftentimes they will develop notches in the blade from the hardened strings and will not work well for stripping wire when you're fixing your amplifier or making patch cables.
