How do I change the strings on my Dean Vendetta
How to Change Strings on a Dean Vendetta Guitar
Dean Vendetta is a company that makes a wide range of electric guitars. These guitars are used by famous musicians and bands such as Alice in Chains and Megadeath. If you own a Dean Vendetta guitar, you will need to change the strings periodically in order to keep your guitar sounding bright and crisp. Without changing the strings, your instrument will sound dull due to dirt and oil build-up on the strings.
Things You'll Need:
* Dean Vendetta guitar
* String winder
* Guitar strings
* Electronic tuner
* Wire cutters
Locate the high E string. This is the string that is highest and thinnest and closest to the ground when you play the guitar.
Loosen the high E string by turning its tuning key counterclockwise. Use a string winder for this if you have one. Pull the string off of the tuning peg and out through the bridge.
Insert a new high E string through the hole in the bridge, up the neck, to the head of the guitar.
Thread the string through the hole in the tuning key so that about two inches extends beyond the hole.
Hold the string at the top end of the neck in one hand as you turn the tuning key clockwise with the other hand. A string winder makes this task much easier.
Continue to wind the string until it tightens to pitch. Use an electronic tuner to check the pitch.
Clip off the excess string with wire cutters.
Repeat these steps to install the B, G, D, A, and low E strings.
Tips & Warnings
Expect to re-tune often for the first few hours after installing the new strings, as they tend to stretch quite a bit at first.
Hope it helped.
