    Changing strings

    Need a hand with this please.

    What's the best way to properly change strings on a PRS trem with phase II and III locking tuners, and is there a method from start to finish, step by step would be appreciated.

    Using PRS 10 strings

    Thanks guys

    Thanks bud, that does look pretty simple actually, hopefully that's all that's needed.

    I've actually used that excuse a couple of times already, worked great, worlds' best and most expensive string change. And if the string changing was just a tiny bit more complex I might have had to use that excuse again, so I hoped.

    Haha! It's like having to buy a new car when the ashtray is full.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    My ex-gf when she'd just started learing a guitar actually thought she had to buy a new guitar because she broke a string on her acoustic.
