I know i already have a thread going about my prs but honestly this is a completely different topic/problem, so please help me out.

I have so far switched out my two e strings, but i cannot for the love of me get the a or the b string out of the body. I haven't tried d or g but god this is annoying. I have absolutely no clue as to why the ball end of the string won't come out. (Btw if you didn't know, my prs is like a fender in that the strings go through the back of the guitar.)

thanks in advance. I really need advice cause its late and i need the strings to be stretched out by tomorrow.

You push the string down from the top of the guitar. They slide down until they come off.

i wouldn't be sitting here asking this question if the strings would just "slide down until they come off"... they are stuck in there so either i'm missing something or i need to mcgyver that shit

If it won't come out, get something strong and thin like a jeweller's screwdriver and poke it in the top side of the hole
ohai little sig.

If that doesnt work, try going from the back of the guitar with a screwdrive and push it in a bit. The winding might be stuck on something.

like what? (no penis jokes please)

i've tried using higher gauge strings to poke out hte lower strings but i cant seem to figure out whats going on under there. I got lucky i guess with the a string cause i got it out but the b is still stuck and now the g is... i haven't touched the d yet. The e's and the a are switched now and doing fine, but the b and the g are ****ed up and i'm guessing the d will be too. Wat da fux i'm sad

and why doesn't this happen with anyone else?

don't know what the winding is but i doubt it because half the strings work and half of them don't. its weird...

The ball ends are usually put on there by bending the string at the end, placing the ball at the bend, and then the excess wrapped around the string. And there's usually a bit of string hanging of the end where its snipped, so that may be caught on sometime.
And dont be afraid to get violent. Its made of wood, you wont damage it too severely unless you do something stupid.

I used to have this happen on my old strat copy. All i ever had to do to get them loose was stick something into the back and give the ball a little wiggle.
