Ugh, I hope that is NOT the case. My manual says not to let all of the tension off all of the strings at once anyway. SO, when you change strings you do them one at a time.


Well, I don't know when that became...law. Something. I've never changed a set of strings one at a time, in 46 years of guitar playing I've only ever taken them all off. Nothing has ever happened.

I'm with rct.
Take them all off; put them all on.
Never once had even the slightest problem (although I only have 42 years behind me as compared to rct's 46). Then again; my guitars never came with user manuals.

Nice guitar! Glad the case issue was resolved to your satisfaction and I hope you have many happy years together!

Hey, Grand-Daddio. As we Young Punks are beginning to say to your worn-out regime;

"Your old road is rapidly aging'
Please get out of the new one if you can't lend your hand
Cause the times they are a-changin"...

Pippio.
