I change my strings once every 2 to 4 weeks, as i play my guitar 4 or 5 days a week, for several hours. There are ways to prolong said string longevity. Ill talk about that another time.

I just changed my fenders strings. But my 335 needed a fresh pair. Locking the old school fender style pegs is very slightly different. Ill make another video about it if anyone ever asks

Thats it! So simple. I also stretch out my guitar strings after i put them on to pre bend the strings cause i hate when my guitar goes out of tune. Good luck!
