so ive had this reissue guitar for a pretty long time and the high e string finally snapped so i got some new strings. Its different then any other guitar ive had before tho, and im not to sure how to restring it. I tried just simply sticking the string down the whole, bending it, and then turning the nobs to wrap the string around but it doesnt feel right...

then i dont learn anything... and I have to pay money.
I just realized I think i need to precut the strings. I guess pull it tight and cut where it meets the nob?

can I just cut the strings with scissors?

huh? what do you mean it doesn't feel right. i have a 57 reissued and i have absolutely no problem restringing it whatsoever

no i see what he's talking about. on reissues and vintage strats. they have different tuning heads, therefore its a different way restringing them

LOL.
How do you mess up a strat restringing it?

Anyway, i think he's talking about split tuners.

I believe you put the first loop over the top of the end that's sticking out., kind sir.
