How to Tie a Luthier Knot


As we mature as guitar players, hopefully our string changing matures as well! There are several skills that I've developed over the years that help me change strings faster and ensure the final result be its best. The Luthier's Knot is one of those, and Jake will show us how to get it done!


Here are a few sets of my favorite guitar strings, or shop all strings HERE.

Is the 1.5" good for both wound and unwound strings? I seem to have a ton of loops on the unwound string and wonder if that impacts anything?

I love the tip, "you"ll never have to change strings again – till the next time".

This is the sort of tip that makes our lives just a little better! Thanks!

Is the slack distance the same for all instruments? Or is it different for a mandolin or a banjo or a ukulele?

Thanks! I first saw this technique 40 years ago, works every time! But I’d still rather lay asphalt shingles in south Texas in August barefoot than change my own strings. Lol.

Great video. I’ve been using this knot for years but never understood the best way to ensure enough slack – now I know!! Thanks!

That’s how it’s done. Been trying to figure that for years.
