    Nah there aren't any alternatives that I know of, besides just playing without that string.
  3. :confused: Have you strung it the correct way? The ball-end should be threaded through the bridge.

    Can't think of why your string should uncoil (?)

    Take it to a shop and see if they can help you out.
