What do you guys use to clip off the end of your guitar string after re-stringing?

and another question, is it a big deal if u change the lowwer 3 strings without changing the other 3? I mean, does it make a big difference sound wise if they are the same gauge?

Get a tuning tool or what ever the hell that thing is called that has a cutter built into it. You'll get very easy and clean cuts. I used wire cutters but mine sucked and barely cut and mostly unravel...

wire cutters / dike cutters, whatever is sharp and made for the job. I always change all of the strings unless I only need to change one during practice or something, but then I change the rest afterwards. The first guy was right, there will be a noticable difference in your sound. Better for them to change over time than to have good/bad sound from the start.

I use pliers, but if it chops the strings cleanly, it's fine.

And if you're going to change any strings, change all of them. Otherwise, you'll end up with half a set of old, duller strings, and half a set of nice new ones.
