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.
