Hello and merry christmas everyone!
A couple of days ago I was tuning my Risa solid tenor ukulele and to my annoyance the A string snapped. But that's not the problem. I can't get the string off the ukulele! It's stuck at the top (where the holes and knots are at the top of the ukulele at the very top of the fretboard) I can't thread it through the top, it seems to be stuck I've tried everything to thread it through and get it 'unstuck' and out but it won't budge.
It's really getting on my nerves now, and I have no idea how to pull the string through the hole and out the back of the ukulele. I read that something similar happened to someone on 'the ukulele hunt' with the same Risa uke, and they bashed a pin through the hole, but I don't want to risk damaging my Risa, I love it too much, and it's far too expensive to replace! I'm missing playing and have had to go back to my cheap Makala Dolphin for now
Any ideas on how to sort this out?
(And I apologise, it's kind of tricky to explain exactly what the situation is here, as this ukulele is kind of unusual)
Thanks everyone, and again, merry christmas. x
