Changing only one string


Recommended Posts

Hi there,


can you help me please, I want to change only one string at the Gibson Robot Les Paul, I dont find the info in the manuel (or I am blind) - could you please help me, which steps do I have to take to change only one string, not all of them (important info for me for concerts etc)...


Thank you really very much for your help,

Two possibilities for single string down:



- Activate Standard Tuning and fret the string that you want to change on the 4th fret and strum that string ( make sure not to fret or even strum any other string).

The respective RoboHead will start unwinding that string.

- Now fret the same string on the 9th fret and strum again, wait until the RoboHead stops unwinding.

- If needed repeat on the 17th fret . The string should be loose now, you may remove and restring.



Use a pliers and cut off the string.




You play. We tune.
