    Popped a movie in and grabbed the Tele. Yikes, been awhile since this one had new strings. So its time to watch King Leonidas whip up on the invaders and take care of business here

    To be totally honest, I hate restringing guitars! Never used to bother me, but at some point it just got to be another chore. Crazy because it's not exactly hard work by any means.
    Once I took my old ES-330 into the shop because something was "off". Go to pick it up and Al at the Music Shop in Park Rapids MN, is kinda laughing and asks if those were the same strings he put on it after the new frets. They were of course, it'd been a couple of years. . . .
    I've gotten better since, not much, but better.

    I've got six guitars so play time does get spread out. But when I can't remember the last time I changed a set on one I figure its time. And yeah, it sounded happier once I got done
