well, last night was the 1st time ive done a restring on my 360/12 and it was far from painful as it's been described. the tape holding the strings in the tailpiece is the key for this task.

here's a few snaps from the restring. pardon the dust :~)

Well, all right!

I should be going through the same experience myself in a week or ten days after my 360/12 gets here. But it's got a trapeze tailpiece so I guess it'll be even less painful.

Roger McGuinn says in his DVD that for him it's "theraputic."

PS: Must have been the spirit of James Brown overseeing your venture that made it go so smooth! :-)

I did mine (for the first time) with the Roger McGuinn one string at a time method. I found pulling the strings up and the side a bit more difficult than it seems to be for Roger in the video, until I realized his RIC is tuned down a 1/2 step so there's a LOT less tension. I adjusted my truss rod at the same time.

Next time I'll tune down a 1/2 step first. Or I'll use the tape method if I want to give the fingerboard a Zymol treatment at the same time.

I bought my 360/12 at Sam Ash and made the deal to bring it in 4 times the first 2 years to have the strings changed and any adjustments. I just changed the strings on my 620/6 and struggled abit. Your photos will help next time.
I wish I would have thought of usng the capo to help hold the stings.lol

Changing strings on a 12 is just one of those things you endure to get the tone, because it is SO worth it. I hope one of these days I can get one with the headstock cut all the way through so it makes it a little easier.
