New strings on the way

My mom's picking up two sets of Light Elixir Nanoweb strings for me today, so I'm finally gonna get a string change... I've been wanting one for so long. I've had these for like, four months. Can't wait!

I told her exactly what to buy (Wrote it down, heh), then she called me from there to make sure, so I'm pretty sure she got what I wanted

Yup, she grabbed what I wanted


Now for the whole re-stringing... This is one of the least desirable tasks there is, I'm sure of it.

Ugh. Okay. She didn't grab what I wanted. I wondered why the package was blue...


So, yeah, now I have to wait for her to go to the store again... She grabbed the electric guitar strings, lol, which doesn't help me much . So... At least I'd only taken the high E string off, so I can still play

On another note, my string pegs are stuck. VERY, very tightly stuck. How should I get them out? Due to my awesome sound-hole location, that's not really viable, and I don't want to damage the bridge or the saddle. Help?

there's a tool that Dunlop makes here. that's what I use when my bridge pins are stuck...either that for i'm very gentle with my wire cutters.

I actually have one of those, but the pins are wedged in so far (Not purposely) that that tool can not get under them enough to get a grip.

Exactly. My mother couldn't find the strings I use if I gave her written and active verbal directions, along with a picture. Why are you so reliant on her to do it for you? Just go with her...

I had my sis get me strings once. I just wrote down exactly what I wanted, and told her to just show the paper to whoever was there. I got what I wanted, so it was all good.

She was going out; I wasn't invited. She was gonna be near the music store . I can't see any other way I'd have been able to go soon, so at least we've gotta go back to return 'em, and I am going this time, whenever that is
