    I tell you, having spent $35 on a set of fender 7350s Ms, and having been very over charged (it's the only strings for an hour, they make a killing), I was very anxious about putting them on (having snapped one the day before). I snipped the tips, and wound them without incident, much to my relief. I was soo worried about breaking them. Now I feel much better having done it, and not ruining the strings! Just letting you guys know!

    you wanna see a frustrated guitarist? let a guitarist try to do something useful on one of my basses. _THAT'S_ a frustrated guitarist.

    because I needed them ASAP, so I had to spend the money. I had to make a practice (the first with my new band) and it was the only time for the next two weeks. I have three sets coming in the mail as it is. (from online)
