Stringing a 12 Hole Tie Block
String Changing Guard
I have seen some pretty bad damage on young handmade classical guitars from simply string changing. Download and print this string changing guard on cardstock paper, then follow the instructions given on the printout to ensure it fits your guitar properly. It is an easy way to ensure that your guitar top is protected during string changes.
12 Hole Tie Block String Tying
I created this string changing diagram to illustrate the different ways I tie strings to a 12 hole, classical guitar tie block. Note that I am using one string and one hole on the example bridge to illustrate the different methods used for different string gauges. (So don't thread a G string where the E string belongs)
