I recently built an Esquire out of sourced parts (HWY 1 body, musikraft neck, fender bridge plate, kulson tuners) and I think for a first timer, it turned out rather well. After dialing it in and getting the setup right, it plays and sounds great,.... sometimes. I do have a weird issue though. It seems that it’s very sensitive to how it’s strung up. Sometimes, with brand new strings the low E and A are just dead sounding and sometimes they are nice and snappy. I don’t know what I am doing different each time or what could be causing this phenomena. I try to string it up the same way every time (approximately the same number of wraps on the post, same approximate position on the saddles, etc.) Is there something that I am missing? What would you say the “proper” way is to sting up a tele?
