lol do you have your balls, i laughed my ass off after seeing that,

Cut the ball off the string. I'm not a fan of wrapping the ball around the tuner. It can slip and I thought I heard somewhere its not good for the string. And it looks retarded, as in too retarded to use wire cutters.

put the string through the tuners so the ball is on the post, cut the string about an inch/inch and a half (preference) past where its gotta go into the trem. lock it into the trem and wind the tuners up.
tune.
apply fast fret.
plug in.
and proceed with guitar wankage.

thats the way i do it.

I leave all the ball end at the tuners except on the Low E because the very end of the string won't fit into the tuner.

Hmm i played with the balls in the tuning posts for like a year and they never slipped or broke at the tuning post. Infact it does look pretty nice IMO.


EDIT: lol i jut realised how funny that sentence is when you think of "balls" as the nutsack lol lolol
