I am also confused by this statement, it should not be any different as far as I know.

Ageed, we need to get as famous as Mr Vai and pay someone to do it for us.
Next purchase for me: talent

Re: Starting to bloom again

Hello, thanks for getting back to me on that. It's a great idea, definitely going to start doing it that way, string changes are just a pain in the arse.

Re: Starting to bloom again

Hi mate, basically I've always done it this way mainly because I'm lazy and it only means snipping one end
I'm not sure if there is a downside to this other than a cosmetic one, as you can see I left way too much slack here - ah well, first time I've re-strung a guitar in years.

I've cleaned up my '91 FP after several years being unloved in a case.
She been gigged hard in the past so is far from mint but starting to look a little nicer.

I need to do some deep cleaning as you can see and I'm debating whether to touch up her war wounds.
Plays real nice though after a bit of a set up(I didn't enjoy my first time removing the trem I have to say!).

Again, thanks for the advise getting me this far








Beatufil axe man, well done. Interested in the way you string it though, nice of getting around clipping them for the edge (the only pain in the arse part of the OE). Any downsides to doing it that way? I know there shouldn't be, but just curious.

Thanks for that mate, yes I'm thinking of leaving the various chips and scratches etc. for nostalgia. Probably will see to the neck joint crack though and some point.
