Question: I have an acoustic guitar and I tuned one of the strings wrong and when I went to play it, it broke. I was just wondering what the range of how much it would cost to get it fixed would be?

You need to change your strings every 2 months or so... more, if you play a lot. So you better learn how to do that. There are lots of articles on the internet or just ask an experienced player to show you. In the beginning I tried every type of string on the market, as well as various guages, before I decided what I was going to stick with... and then I bought a large supply. It might be wise to talk to some experts about strings... there are a lot of them, and they can be somewhat confusing to a new player. You will also need a tuning key crank, a bridge pin puller and a small wire cutters. As to tuning, you need a chromatic tuner such as a Korg CA-1... it's very inexpensive and makes tuning easy. Oh yeah, as to the cost of strings... unless you decide to use something exotic, a typical set of 6 will cost around $6. You almost certainly won't find a packaged set that works perfect, you will have to buy the strings individually. I could write you a book on strings but that's another subject... ! ~ Good luck ~

You can't fix a broken string. You'll need to replace it with a new string. Shouldn't be more than a couple of bucks at a music store, and they might be willing to install it for you.

Firstly, if you're a beginner, get a professional to restring your guitar. If you're already experienced at this, try buying some smaller gauge strings, as the current ones may be too thick. Alternatively, if you're comfortable with your choice of string, take your guitar to the shop and ask them to file down the nut (you can try this yourself if you know how to do so). People usually have trouble with their strings binding to the nut, the solution to which may work for you also; try applying Vaseline the string where it fits into the slot. Hope this helps...
