Reinstalling strings.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

In the not to dim and distant future I’m going to be stripping my Squier down a bit. Copper shielding and a new set of pups and a lick of lemon oil.

I’m planning on reusing the strings. They are silk wrapped at top and tail flat wounds. And are practically new.

Any reason I shouldn’t put them back on once the work is done? 

Thank you.

I'd recommend trying to fit them in the same orientation as they were on the saddles and tuners.

No reason at all why you shouldn’t put your strings back on, I’ve restored and upgraded a few of my jazzes, and if you don’t alter your bridge your intonation should stay fairly true, and it’s worth checking the  pickup height when fitting the new ones , it does alter the sound .  I love an upgrade 🙂

Of course you can reuse strings. . . . . but after all that work and expense upgrading your bass, don't you think a new set of strings would cap it off nicely?

Change Flatwounds? Heresy. 😉

Depends on what flatwound strings they are.

Upgrading to a good (and new) set of flats might just be the icing on the cake.
