String alternative...

Recommended Posts


Anyone tried threading the strings of their guitar in the same way as the picture above?

Does it improve tuning stability, increase sustain?

Yep, ive started doing that. I saw Zakk Wylde explain why he does that in an interview. He believes it helps tuning stability, reduces breakages and makes bending easier.

In the space of a couple of weeks i had snapped my high E twice going for a big bend(probably too big a bend), and it had snapped right at the ball-end, so that persuaded me to try stringing them like Zakk Wylde and ive had no problems at all. Its not snapped since and to me it does feel easier to bend
