I’m open minded and will try it next string change just to see how much time it saves and how it works. I guess I’ve been changing strings so long I have a system that really works for me and I don’t mind doing it. (Creature of habit) Off topic, if I came in a little too hard with my opinions here and offended anyone, my apologies. After a long day at work I come here for fun and enjoying the company of fellow guitar players. Anything negative I stay away from. I also do not insult people personally on forums like this. I’m here to make friends not enemies. To the person that tossed out insults my way, you are the first to be added to my ignore list. It’s a shame, you might have had good things to say but I’ll never see them. We aren’t talking politics or religion here, we are talking about locking tuners.
