When I was starting out I used 2 or 3 string winds(the first over, the rest down) to increase string angle, and locking them in the process.
Now I use a single locking wind, and it hardly makes a difference for tuning stability IMO. It is a bit more convenient(quicker and easy).
Dreadlocks on the Dreadnought.
Too many winds. Fewer helps to stabilize tuning faster and better.
I do the same thing but only lock on the unwound strings and it's not even a lock in the traditional sense. But also, I find that tuning stabilizes faster because all those winds tend to respond to the tension randomly. And I think increasing angle is over rated as I think you're saying too. Enough is enough and the nut is designed for a specific angle. More just makes the strings bind more.
I will readily admit that sometimes I overshoot the anticipated required slack in order to get enough winding on the peg and end up with almost enough turns to create an electromagnet, but at least I've never done this:
Well, you never know when you'll need a little more string.
I bet that intonation was spot on.
"I like to call this piece 'Prelude to a glass eye'".
seriously, this picture make me nervous.
I used to do that but hated the way it looked and cut 'em these days.
Back in my college daze I knew some duuuuuude guys that like toooootally played guitar and they swore you could hear a difference in sound between a cut and uncut string. Utter nonsense.
/Strings have already been cut once....to length
Quit posting pictures of your G-string. This is a family kind of joint.
Wait...….what???? I'm trying to figure out how the heck that would even work!
Now that is just too cute
I thought I looked really cool with strings coiled on my acoustic in m the 70’s. That ended when I got my first good electric.
