Restringing at the Post

Do you
1. Wound the string a few times on the post then put it through the hole.

2. Leave some slack and put it through the hole and then start to turn the machine heads.

Which one do you do? Which one is the correct way?

Re: Restringing at the Post

so you dont even wind at all... so you just put the string through the hole and then over the nut to the bridge?

There is no correct way - as long as the final outcome is the same....do which ever way you prefer / works best / fastest for you

With the ball end at the post, pass the string under the retaining bar and thru the nut, and cut it at the bridge, leaving a lil over 2 inches past the saddle... then lock the saddle screw and start winding the tuner till you get to the right note...


If it has old strings and its in tune, do one string at a time and it should be perfect when you do the last string...

AND the ballend being tight to the tuner makes it as easy to restring and wind as with locking tuners
