I just got into playing guitar and acquired an old acoustic electric takamine eg230, but it needs new strings. I was trying to restring it thinking it would simple like a regular acoustic, but it seems as though the strings are connected straight to the pickups inside the guitar? or something like that. I'm not quite sure what to do and wondered if anyone could help me out.
if the strings were connected right to the pickup, the strings wouldn't reach the tuning pegs... its just like stringing a regular acoustic...
i dont really know what i'm talking about too much. best way i can describe it is that the strings are attached to something inside the guitar. when i pop the pegs out the strings stay tight & stuck inside the guitar.
