Blue Jay,

I used to install the strings as you recommended, but since I discovered the ball ens at the winding pegs trick, I feel that is far superior; give it a try sometime! :)

gnease I never called them "dikes" :shock:

but we did call them "diags" - die -ags :lol:

most people are are too lazy to say di-ags, kat, hence dikes (not that there's anything wrong with that)

I've got one of those. They are great. But it's supposed to have a bridge pin puller and I've never been able to figure out where it is. If you know can you explain please?

That's good, and also funny IMO, my di-ags, or diagonal string cutters are also my acoustic bridge pin pullers! Ouch? :shock: :lol:

I really wish I'd got one of these years ago. But the first time I used it, I'd wind a string, then put it down and look around wildly searching for my missing plers. Took a little getting used to, but having everything you need in one tool is awesome. Seriously good buy, imho. But some reviews say using a new fangled all-in-one device like this will compromise your tone and that vintage pliers give you more sustain. Personally, I can't hear the difference though. :roll:

The only place I've heard 'em called "dikes" is in the USA.
Confused the heck out of me for the first week of a training course I was on in Dallas. :roll:
