But is it bad if my strings have gone flat under the string locks? I mean I guess it makes sense for that to be normal. But my mate did them up really really tight and they are very flat, I'm worried if they are gunna break?
I don't understand what you mean
I don't know how else to explain it... like the string locks have squished the strings flat?
OH! Well, you shouldn't worry about that I guess :p Just play 'em I guess
Just the wound ones, right? Not a big. I'd be more concerned w/ stripping the threads if the locks r being tightened that much.
Oh okay, thanks man
never overtighten the locking nuts, firstly you run the risk of stripping the threads secondly crushing the strings will affect the tuning and will make the string more likely to break at the nut and never let a friend do anything to your guitars other than play them occasionally.

Don't even let your friend play your guitars! If he/she ventures near to them HADOUKEN that mofo!
Yeah only you or a guitar tech should be doing maintanence on your guitar. And no, the strings should not be flat. You dont need to tighten the string locks very tight, just enough to keep the strings from moving.
hah yeah i am pretty protective of it... i'll be sure not to let them again!
