This video goes into the process of changing guitar strings. I’ll be working with my PRS SE Custom 24 because it was due for some new steel, but this process is the same or very similar for all electric guitars.

Take off the strings→Oil the fretboard (Optional) →Clean your guitar (Recommended) →Replace strings→Stretch strings and tune. Let me know if you have questions!

So how often should you change strings? Depending on how much you play and how many guitars you have will determine how often you change strings. I have three guitars (that I play about equally) and play for about 10 hours per week. I change my strings every two to three months. Oiling the fretboard is on an as needed basis when you start to see white pop up on the edges.

Some supplies that you will need are listed below. The * indicates optional.

• New strings
• String winder or string cutting tool
• *Neck stand
• *Guitar Polish
• *Microfiber cloth
• *Fretboard cleaner
• *Fretboard conditioner or lemon oil

I’m just a dude in my basement that has only been playing guitar for a few months and fell in love. I don’t get paid, I don’t get free schtuff, I just want to spread the joy and the lifestyle. If that’s what you’re about do me a favor and subscribe. Thank You!!
