I was just restringing one of my guitars today and was thinking how much easier and reliable my restrings have gotten since watching this video several months ago. I know re-stringing seems like a pretty simple task, but I know I was doing it the 'wrong' way for a while before I saw this. I thought it might help some people out.

This guy has a bunch of good videos. His video on how to scotch brite your neck to make it faster is good too. It works wonders on a poly or urethane finished neck (Don't do this on a nitrocellulose finish!)

Yeah, Frudua's good. He has an excellent video on restringing a Strat that helps compensate for the tremelo, which can throw a Start out of tune when used.

You say "pretty simple task". I say "then I suck, because it always looks like a 5 year old did it when I'm done". Lol. Since I got my new axe with locking tuners I don't think I'll ever go back.

Here is a different method from a professional guitar tech.

Haha, I said it 'seems like a simple task' but my stringing jobs always looked like a 5 year old did it as well, before I watched that video. Regarding your video Braintrust, that looks like a good way to do it too, but he doesn't really show if his method has the same locking properties as the method that Frudua also does. (Frudua is also a professional luthier and guitar tech.)
