This Thread had it genesis on another Thread regarding the best way to install a new pickguard on a Deluxe Nashville Telecaster. On that Thread it was suggested to simply remove the strings, and then re-stringing after the new pickguard is installed. My eventual question is more about the proper way to put new strings on my guitar, but hopefully it will coincide with removing and putting back on the same strings I have read many articles stating that the best way to re-string is to start on the high E string first, remove the old string, and then replace it with the new one. One would then remove the next string, replace it, and continue one string at a time until all the strings have been replaced. The reason this method was considered the "best" way to re-string was because it kept a constant tension on the neck. I then read other articles saying to simply loosen all the strings equally, cut/remove all of them, and then re-string one string at a time. Which method do you prefer, and if the one string at a time method is preferred, how can I do that and have enough space to remove/install the pickguard that has pu's attached to it?
