Thread Name: Pre-stretching guitar strings
Subject: RE: Pre-stretching guitar strings
I do essentially the same thing when I have time. I install the strings one at a time, tuning them to concert pitch. As I tune each string, I go back and bring the ones installed prior to concert pitch back up. Once all are on, I set the guitar down and leave it alone for a day. Not sure why I do this, it is just how I have always done it.

All the best,
