A couple of days ago I re-stringed my new Collings MT for the first time. But something rather odd happened. When I put on the first E-string, the loop gave in: While I turned and I turned the tuner, the loop got smaller and smaller until it was almost gone and I had to take the string off.
Has it ever happened to you? Did I do something wrong? Or was it a string malfunction?
The strings I use are D'addarios J-74's.
