Okay, i heard it somewhere, a long time ago, that if you take all the strings off your guitar, that it will screw up the neck or something. Since I haven't got the balls to try it, i'm just asking if its true? will it really **** up the neck?

I don't think you'll have a problem if you take them all off and then go and replace them. I think the thing with the neck has to do with having the strings off for a long time.

it might not screw up the neck, but if you have a floating bridge, ex- strat then it messes up the springs and the tension with those

Pretty much if theres drastic changes in temperature, i heard the neck might warp or something because of the change of pressure.

Not unless you leave them off for ages.
You'll be fine.

i have a floating bridge and i take all strings off once in awhile to clean neck and body really well. It hasnt been a problem for me, i have done this hundreds of times. I did hear that if the strings were cut/snapped off all at same time it might cause the neck to shift/tweak...???maybe, beats me.

To clean the fretboard.


And just don't leave your guitar stringless for too long. It'll be okay.

aww man. I think i ****ed it up. The E, A, and D strings sound like they're hitting metal and give off this metallic sound when i strum them. But i only replaced 3 at a time. >.<

Well, i'm using an electric tuner just in case and if i try to reach for a higher E/A/D, they'll snap.

Well, check the tension of the strings. You've played in standard tuning before I assume. You should know about how much tension there is on a string when it is tuned. If you don't think you can make it still, raise the action.
