I was thinking that exactly. The OP just created a replacement set for a Little Martin. Now he has a good reason to purchase another guitar.

I think we've all had our stringing mishaps before. I know that I too put the A string where the E string goes once before, years ago. Not sure if it was related to coffee though.

Easy,

Buy a smaller size guitar that can use the string.

You can buy single strings from a few sources. I can get one from Gryphon if I need to.

I did but they were a different brand and the lights when I needed a medium. No worries. I was able to swing by GC and grab another set. Iíll be sure to do it right this time!

Well..I came close to buying another today while I was picking up a new set of strings. Luckily I had enough self discipline to get myself out of there with only the strings. Next time will be a different story.

Stuff happens and I appreciate how. In my 46 years of playing, Iíve been lucky that Iíve never made a stringing mistake.

LMAO. Do you really think this is the most egregious stringing faux pas you could have? As you will find EVERYONE has a stringing mistake story. From the rookies to the pros. Stuff happens. Thanks for starting the thread though. Lots of good posts.
