4) Do your strings sound dull?
5) Had a string break recently?

If you answered yes to any of the above, its probably time to replace your strings.

Do not worry if you can not move the string as sometimes they can be tight. If so go to step 5.3) You should be able to remove the bridge pins easily. You may need a Bridge Pin Puller to remove the bridge pins if they are tight. 4) Now carfully remove the old strings from the holes. Remember which hole the thickest string was in. Please recycle old guitar strings.5) Use the bridge Pin puller to lever out the bridge pins if they are very stiff.
