    rbcrazyriderrb asked: “Have you ever seen a famous guitar player that prefers a swuire (sic) over a strat?”

    Actually, the great Jeff Healey (who is now deceased) played a reworked Squier. One of the things about his being blind was, he didn’t “hear with his eyes” like so many who believe that any Strat (with pickups mounted on plastic) must sound better because of the price. He judged instruments by their merits and modified them to suit his style and taste.

    Someone who has never replaced a string before?


  • P0oDoll · June 24, 2012 at 7:39 am

    actually, it’s YOUR ignorance. You’re the one who didn’t know how to (1st evidence) AND you’re the one who didn’t use more sources than just 1 (2nd evidence).

  • racerz510 · June 24, 2012 at 11:01 am

    What guitar are you using? Did it do this before?


  • 18francesco18 · June 24, 2012 at 11:45 am

    I don’t know why but everytime I restring my guitars my low E string is always a little bit slacky and loose, mind you it’s just the Low E that has this problem, the other strings are not loose at all…what do I do wrong ?


  • te7rapak · June 24, 2012 at 12:15 pm

    thaaaaaaaaaannnk youuuu sooo muuuchh :D 3rd string stayed in tune now :)


  • groovydjs · June 24, 2012 at 1:09 pm

    Yep, the dumbest thing you can do for your strings right there folks. Anyway, for God’s sake, tighten up the nuts on your tuners, they are about to fall off of the headstock. This has always amazed me. Folks, on Fender guitars, you want as many winds as you can get. They aren’t bright when it comes to tuner post height, so you must wind them WAY down to keep them tight in the nut. If you skimp on the windings, the strings could miss touching the nut period. Not a good thing. Wind, wind!

    Helped out ALOT thanks man much appreciated


  • GlobalEltorro · June 24, 2012 at 1:51 pm

    My string broke :(


  • NEWYORKGATOR08 · June 24, 2012 at 2:34 pm

    Yeah but notice its made in Mexico not in the USA. Its a cheap Strat my friend.. Just cause it it has Stratocaster on it doesn’t mean its great guitar. Its probably an ok guitar but do your homework before buying one and letting someone take advantage of you by your lack of knowledge.


  • xrhstoslabrino · June 24, 2012 at 2:59 pm

    thank you so much! the best  video on how to change strings on el guitar!


  • Ynehc · June 24, 2012 at 3:38 pm

    That is only true to a small degree, the guitarist makes the equipment sound good, a good guitarist can work with almost any instrument, it really all comes down to playing.


  • rbcrazyriderrb · June 24, 2012 at 3:41 pm

    the better equipment the better i play so it is important. Have you ever seen a famous guitar player that prefers a swuire over a strat?


  • Gebrechlichkeit1 · June 24, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    Actually I don’t care about equipment…for me this is not so important


  • rbcrazyriderrb · June 24, 2012 at 4:16 pm

    i likec mine but then my old guitar teacher let me play his strat and i almost pooped my pants. From then on i have hated my squire. now im fixing it up. i have put a emg humbucker on it.


  • Gebrechlichkeit1 · June 24, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    me too but i like it…I hated it before but I understood that the squire is a good guitar and I started to love it :)


  • rbcrazyriderrb · June 24, 2012 at 6:05 pm
