So I've had this S101 Classical guitar for about a year now, and I've always used hand tied strings with no problems. Until now. I guess I tied one too tight or something, because no matter what I do I cannot get it out. Tried poking it through, widening the hole, and even burning the string out....

Has anyone had problem similar to this? Anything I can do to get the string out?

Is it just part of the string is stuck inside the whole or the string is tied around the bridge?

Have you tried using pointed/precision tweezers to pull it out. (the type for plucking eye brows).

The string is stuck inside the whole. If it was tied around the bridge I'd have no problem....probably should have done that

Yea I've tried a few different pairs of eyebrow tweezers. Nothing.

Only thing i can think of then is to soak something like a pipe cleaner in oil and push that through both ends of the hole as far as it will go and hope the oil will help it to free up and slip out....
