GRR!

just restrung the guitar, left it all afternoon and came back to it to do a bit of playing.
just noodling around, went to do a tone bend on 17th fret on the high " and the string snapped! how annoying is that!? id done a really nice and tidy job restringing it too since i had nothing better to do with my day!

(sunday is such a boring day!!)

2 words: student budget!

i should really have kept hold of the old ones i took off just in case but i was in such a lazy mood i took a snipper to the middle just so its easier to take it out at the tuning peg!

Re: GRR!

Just tie the 2 ends together, it'll work fine. Shredders only need the frets above 17 anyway.
