Basically, my problem is this: I'm re-stringing my guitar (Yamaha Pacifica) and I'm undoing my high E-string, but I can't get the end out the saddle and through so I can actually remove the string. Does anyone have any help on how to remove it?

Tug harder?
Or clip off the part you cant remove?

Push on it with the tip of a small screwdriver. I mean, actually push on the ball end with the screwdriver tip. This will loosen it and allow it to be removed. Fender guitars have this same problem and that's how I remove the ball end on them.

I usually will take a long needle and poke it. If you clipped it u may need to push with a needle and use needle nose pliers to grab and pull. May need to remove tremolo cover to grab it.

Yea, I used the remanats of an old string to push it down after jiggling the ball out of whateverit was jammed against
