  • Hi GMC, welcome to my new guide on restringing the electric guitar. This video can serve as a guide how to properly restring a telecaster type of guitar with stoptail but applicable to similar types of guitars. Note that I'm showing one way to change the strings and not the only way. You can make your own restringing process, and I hope you will learn something from my own that you already don't know. Have fun!
