What order do you put the strings on on a reverse headstock (eg. Epiphone firebird stuidio)?

The order shouldn't really matter, but I always start with the low E; whether it's 6 in line, reversed or 3+3.

Just make sure you don't have too much or too little windings, and try to take the string to the peg as straight as possible.

This, but I start with the high E.
I don't think it makes much difference.

And may I ask, why do you start with the higher e?

I always figured, the fattest strings have the most tension so the longer they are on the neck before I want to play, the better it can 'get used to it', so to speak.
But I just checked and there doesn't seem to be much of a difference in tension between different strings...

So, is it all just preference here then?

I personally always start with the heaviest string. Makes sense really.

I think it's all a matter of preference. Start with the low E string, and if that doesn't work. Then you should know the answer.
