    M,

    God bless you...shedding a little for the cause.

    There is an old story where drops of a famous player's blood are still visible inside the guitar looking through the sound hole. The guitar remains today, the player has long since passed.

    Best,

    BIB.

    Seriously, there was SO much blood.! Ive been changing strings for forty years and that was just BIZARRE!
    It was the sharp cut end of the old B as i was unwinding it.
    Son of a bee sting!

    Tears.

    Then, there are the type of player who doesn't cut (or even coil( the end of the strings. I wonder how many eyes have been poked out by these. Had a guitarist buddy who'd have a lit cigarette stock on the tail of the high E string he'd leave long for that purpose.

    Bill Nash puts a ‘cigarette burn’ by the 6th string tuner on the head stock of the heavy relic ‘52-Tele that I yearn for.

    Well, I would gladly stick a string end into a finger for a black DSV; beautiful axe.
