How Much you think replacing a Guitar string costs?
I just finished breaking my E string on my guitar ( the thinest one) and I'm planing on just to restring the entire guitar. I honestly don't trust myself to do it myself. So how much do you think it would cost if a Store like Sam Ash or Guitar Center did it for me?

It's actually easier to do than you think - I learned how to do it using an instructional video on YouTube - it gave really step by step instructions. Strings for an acoustic guitar cost about £7.99, I don't know about other types of guitar, sorry.

It will be like $30. They will also offer you to like re-oil the guitar and get it up to par. It is worth it if you have the extra cash.

You can get a set of complete new strings for under $5 at Guitar Center for most guitars. When I replaced mine the first time, I brought it in and they showed me how. This was offered to me when I first bought the guitar. I don't know if that's common procedure or if I just had a nice rep.

If you're serious about playing guitar, you should really learn how to restring it yourself. To keep the guitar's tone as best as it can be, you should restring it about once every month, which could cost a lot of money if you have someone else do it. The first time it might not be so good, but if you do it enough... More

It really depends on what strings you get, and you should probabaly just replace all the strings by yourself. it is simple. im 15, and i can do it. But if you go for the really nice strings... about $20, and it goes down from there. i have elixer nanowebs on my martin guitar, and it is perfect, so find some strings... More

I definitely agree with baseballguitar12, if you are serious about playing guitar, you need to learn to restring it yourself, and besides, replacing a string isn't that much, and is not expensive at all. Some stores sell single strings along with the full sets, and I've picked up a e string like that for under a... More
