    [Tech] Makeshift String Spreader

    You guys ever get tired of taking all your strings off to clean the fretboard or work on a fret? Check it:

    Cut up a wire hanger

    Bend a little piece up

    Shishkabob a piece of foam or wrap it in paper

    Bent the ends outward

    Curl those sharp ends under

    Check it for size, bending accordingly

    Loosen the strings and pull them over

    Get to work
