    When changing strings do u guys take them all off at the same time OR one at a time? I’ve heard so much pros/cons but am wondering what you guys do and why?

    I normally take them off one at a time unless it's time for a fingerboard oiling or cleaning.

    I take them all off at the same time because for me it's a great time to go through my bass and thoroughly clean it. I let it sit for a day with the new strings and then recheck the intonation and she's ready to go..,.,.
