Guitar Maintenance: Cleaning & Restringing

I can't believe how long I went without properly restringing my guitar. My strings broke all the time, the guitar never stayed in tune, and taking the strings off was a chore. These tutorials are a fantastic way to care for your guitar. The first one guides you through cleaning and maintaining the body while the second focuses on the actual restringing and action adjustment.
