    I heard that a guy I know pays someone to change his guitar strings.

    I was in my late 30s when I started playing and had to take my Ibanez RG470 with a Floyd to the shop to get new strings. I asked the guy if I could watch and he said yes. Last time I ever paid anyone to work on a guitar for me.

    Where you laugh I see someone who could be willing to pay you to service his guitars for him.

    I'll laugh twice as hard as I'm changing his strings with a wad of cash in my pocket!

    I'm more than willing to service anyone for the right price.

    Wait a minute...

    That doesn't sound exactly the way I meant it. o_O

    My friend was paying my other friend’s music store 25 bucks, plus the price of the strings, to restring her classical guitar. Now I just do it for her for free. Guitar center in my town charges 15 bucks to restring an electric plus the price of the strings. When I was a teenager, taking my first guitar lessons, my guitar teacher showed me how to do it. Once.

    It didnt take long to learn how to string my guitar. But doing it neatly took a bit longer

    :D:p:cool:


    My parents paid somebody to change my strings for maybe the first six months. Then I looked it up online and figured out it wasn't that freakin' hard...
