Stringing tip -Use an Index Card

French polish is fragile and seems to attract sharp objects, scratches easily - fingernail marks sometimes show up even when the guitar's in its case!

Restringing is a task offering the opportunity to jam the string end into the top as you thread the string through the bridge.

As a rule, we lightly tape a 3 x 5 index card to the top flush with the bridge with a low-tack masking tape, protecting the top from any stray string marks.
