THAT MAKES IT SEEM EASIER THAN THE WAY I WAS DOING IT…YOU ROCK… =) February 15, 2014 Reply AltoAtic just realized how stupid I was lol April 30, 2014 Reply 1971SuperLead I always wrap the strings over the stop piece. June 23, 2014 Reply invisible1955 Gibson provided a diagram on how to string a Les Paul, and it's nothing like this beautifully simple method. For so long now I've been guesstimating how many wraps to have around the posts (and getting it horribly wrong) – this just made what should be a simple job so much clearer AND logical. Thank you SO much! October 29, 2014 Reply Bluebird Jo The method avoids the hassles of the way I've been doing this for decades, which has involved some seemingly too elaborate steps . . . it's so easy and effective . . . thanks!

February 20, 2015 Reply Zac theFox Maybe its just me but isnt taking off all your string a bad thing for the neck? i mean correct me if i'm wrong but if you pay a lot for this guitar wouldn't you want to keep it in tip top shape May 6, 2015 Reply Mecha Nintendo Master How do you wrap them around so perfect.

October 31, 2018 Reply Esteban Díaz Hello, I have a Gibson les Paul traditional Pro 2 2014, and also have a les Paul Studio 2009. The unplugged Studio sounds is very resonant, while the traditional sounds thin. Connected to the amp, it sounds good, but the feeling on the fingers is still missing. Do you know if it's because of the weight and the construction or is it fixed? Thank you. December 7, 2018 Reply eindringling I tried it with a video of my native language first, but this video made it so much easier. Thanks for the clear instructions and camera work!
