UPDATE: Just done my first restring. The set was the Ernie ball baritone 72-13 6 string set. Tuned it to Drop G# Basically how the bridge works for restrings is you stab the string down in a hole in each spindle exactly like how you would when you restring a bass, then you just wind it up until its wrapped around a few times. Getting a locking headpiece for this a must!!!!!. Im so glad I did. Its made restring it a breeze tbh. Will do some tone stuff soon \m/ Also with thicker strings on, its made adjusting the action easier somehow. The thicker string seems to hold the bridge in place better too. It buzzes less and feels more secure. I did have to unwind the outer string layers on the first 2 strings (72 and 54 I believe) as they were too thick to stick in. I also had to unwind a little on the 72 at the headpiece end for it to fit in the nut slot. Locking headpiece made doing this not a problem. Also............ It seems that cleaning the fretboard takes black off?. So Im basically assuming this is rosewood and they ebonized it for the $25 then claimed it was "ebony"? No other reason why Ebony would strip its black right?. Its still dark dark but It did leave black on my rag. Haha.
