Re: Restringing Guitar
The tuner winder thing for removing pegs works pretty good for me. I found my football bat not to be as useful. First, I had a terrible time getting the darn thing down off the ceiling to train it and then it wanted to do the whole thing without using his hands. Last time I import a football bat from Great Britain. Besides, it kept wanting biscuits, but every time I gave him some he screamed about hating sourdough and wondering where the sugar biscuits went.
I don't fuss about scuffing my bridge. I'm plenty scuffed, so my guitar may as well be too.
I replaced the plastic pegs that came with my guitar for wooden pegs made by Taylor. The plastic pegs were a disaster to get out the first time, but the wooden pegs seem much simpler to manage. I considered brass pegs, but haven't decided to afford then when the wooden pegs seem to be doing the trick. I think the wooden pegs allow for a warmer tone to the guitar as well, but that may just be due to the fact that I usually drink bourbon when restringing my guitar.
