Restring guitars with a stop-bar tailpiece

Now slide the new string through the back of the tail piece, place the tail piece back in to position, pass it through the tuning key post and pull it tight. Wrap it around behind the tuning key post, under itself and over the top as shown in the video and lock it. Then with the pro winder, wind the string counter-clockwise until it is tight.
