How to String with a Locking Tuner


Step 1 – Remove old string. (When re-stringing a guitar, you can save yourself some later readjustments by changing only one string at a time.)

Step 2 – Insert new string through tailpiece/bridge or tremolo block. Remember to pull the string all the way through the tailpiece/tremolo. You’ll also want to keep it taut as you pull the string through the tuner

Step 3 – Put the new string through the hole on the tuner and pull it tight.

Step 4 – Tighten the locking knob.

Step 5 – Tune up the new string.

Step 6 – Clip the new string 1/8” from the hole.
