Today my Stagg Flying V arrived in the post, it had cost me £50 on ebay inc P&P. It sounds great since ive tuned it. The only problem was that during the transit a string snapped so I am just curious to know what size string I will need to replace it with.

Pictures supplied:





So what you lads and ladies think?

Its so sexy, best 50£ I ever spent.

If it sounds as sexy as it looks, then that is a hell of a deal. DO tell how she sounds though. Also where'a the D?

just like was said in the other thread you posted about this guitar, just buy a whole new set... it's not that expensive, and will probably be better quality than the stock strings anyways.

And you belive I can change strings when I have tried in the past but always failed. Its so complicated, mega complicated in fact.

Wont my music store just replace a string for me?

The TUTS ive found are all patheticly helpless =(

Thanks. Would I need a string winder by any chance?

Oh and the first person to find me a string changing tutorial gets a cookie.

It even includes pictures for you to look at. Seriously if you can't even follow that then have fun being ripped everytime you need a string changed. And you don't need a string winder.

Of a Stagg? No thanks.

I'm not a fan of the labelled pots. Or the dip in the headstock. Or the only 21 frets.

But other than that, HNGD

Scroll down and there is a tutorial on restringing.

Like what Phil said, if you don't figure it out yourself than have fun being ripped off everytime you have to visit the music store. It really isn't that hard. The link I posted is a good tutorial to get you started. Pretty simple stuff.

And yeah, change them all. Stock strings are crap.

But HNGD by the way. Glad you are happy with your purchase.

difficult? wtf? restringing is probably the siplest thing about being a guitarist. you dont even to be able to play and should be able to restring a guitar. it's not hard at all! there's even a tutorial on this site for restringing, just follow that and there you go.
