[*title] Removing the first half of the dead strings
[*
black] Insert wisdom hereThe first step to getting your guitar back into shape is to remove the old, dead strings. This will allow us to access the fretboard and more thoroughly clean the parts of the body and headstock the strings lay over.
[* black] We do not want to remove all 6 strings at once as this would suddenly and drastically alter the tension on the neck, which could lead to warping. If the neck becomes warped, when the new strings are applied they may be too close or too far away from the fretboard, causing fret buzz or strings that are difficult to press down.
[* black] Take the first three strings off, starting with the smallest string (the high E)
