A friend of mine said they'd pay me to change their guitar strings.
Would $10 be a reasonable price? My local shop does a full setup for $35 but I don't think they care enough for that and I'm not sure how much to ask for.
I'm thinking either $10 if they have strings and $15 if they don't, I'll do a full re-string and tuning and pretty polish and stuff too. What do the greedy pit monkeys think?

10$ for 7-10 minutes work is pretty fair. too much really, now that I think about it. But I personally wouldn't do it for less, and if they'd want to pay, I don't see a reason why you should.

I think you show them how for free.

Making money off that is really messed up imo.


EDIT: Unless said guitar has an FR...

Hey, I was offered money to do so and I'm flat broke lol.
If it has an FR I'm not even going to attempt it lmao

goddamn that's sad, FR takes like 5 minutes more if you fluff the tuning.
changing strings is not difficult.

I've never changed strings on any tremolo system in my life, let alone an FR

this. seriously. someone who can't change their own strings is obviously very new, and thats pretty much just taking advantage of them, and its your friend. just show him how to change them
