I never had trouble putting strings on my Martin D18. Now I have a Gibson J40....No idea how to do this. how fragile would this guitar be?I live way out in the suburbs;is it safe to take this to just any music store to have strings put on,or do I need a specialist?What kind of strings?

You may wish to contact Gibson and get their recommendation.
I see the J 40 has a pinless bridge and if they're anything like the ones they use on Lowdens string changing is easy. Detach the string from the tuner post and slip it out the back of the bridge (away from the soundhole) then reverse the process.

When i restring my Lowden I put masking tape behind the bridge to protect the soundboard

Dear Guest,
if you' ve strung your Martin, there's no need for help on this one: Frank Ford's comment on this subject is germane. It's toward the end of the Restringing Clinic under steel strings, after explaining the pin style. Read all about it at frets.com where you find unbiased, informed info & tutorials. By all means, keep coming here, where you'll always find friendly help, but every single question around guitar setup repair & restoration is addressed on his website.
enjoy yer Gibson &
keep on pickin'
dennis
