Here’s another tip for easier Bigsby tailpiece restringing: Install locking tuners on your guitar! Insert the string into the tuner first and lock it down with plenty of slack so that the ball end can reach the tailpiece. Pre-bend the ball end and slip it over the post on the taipiece axle. Pull up on the string to maintain tension to keep the string on the post. Crank the tuner to tighten the string.
