Question about changing the strings on my 1000
Maybe this will help:
I'd leave the ball end on. String it thru the tuning machine, then under the retainer bar, and thru the nut. Pull it straight against until it rests flat against the neck. put my right hand under the string at the twelth fret like I'm going to give it a karate chop all the while still pulling with my left. Then I measure the string an inch past the saddle, insert, and tighten. This time I didn't use my right hand so I'm worried I screwed up the whole thing and it's pulling my trem angle up? hope that helps and thx!
