Hey everyone! I need some instructions on how to change the inlay stickers on my guitar fretboard... How do i get the strings out of the way but at the same time make sure that they tension over the guitar neck doesn't become too low??

Thanks

u can't take the strings all off! it the reason you change the strings on the guitar one by one, and not by removing all at once.

It won't harm it to take all the strings off, but if you're honestly that worried you could detune until the strings are so slack you can push them out of the way? It'd be easier to take them off though.

My bad, but still what would the point be, they'd wear off in a matter of days.

You can, there is just too much fear spread about that. Take the strings off. Really, nothing bad will happen if you don't take 2 days to finish the job. Get it done and string it up.

He said replace the inlay stickers, but that isn't what he meant. Its obvious reading the first post that he wants to add 'inlay' stickers, not replace the inlays.

Yea i have heard good things about the inlay stickers. Someone here on the forms told me that he has a guitar with inlay stickers and they have been on for 6+ months and leave no marks after you take them off.

This is an odd topic I've seen coming on these forums since I started browsing them again.

You can take the strings off entirely, even for a day or two, depending on how heavy gauge the strings are. It is wise to not leave the guitar without strings for an EXTENDED period, because depending on the tension that is in the neck, it may bow forwards and straighten.

Put simply, you're fine if you're taking the strings off and sticking stickers on then putting them back.
