Found one last year at a garage sale. It has no string in it and I can't even begin to figure it out.

Can someone post instructions on how to string this monster. I have found written instructions on this board but if someone has pictures or ilustrations that would be great.

Thanks,

I asked for the same information a few months ago, and a few people here were kind enough to send me the original instructions. I will try and dig it up again if you can provide me with your email I would be more than happy to forward a copy to you.

That ought to get it! If you're using a Neos, you'll want to put the bottom clamp down the throat of the T2000 leaving the head unencumbered so you can string it.

Have fun! :)

I hope to god that I never have to restring my (parents') T-2000.

I would have two of them, but one of them got stolen...SOOO annoying.

No problemo. If you have any questions with regard to stringing, don't hesitate to page me.

I have 3 T2000's, one of them is the Connors model. I've strung all of them just for fun. It really is kind of like learning Latin would be I imagine. :)

The 2 hardest spots on stringing these is at the end of stringing the middle 12 mains. On the short side, tying off to the metal loop without losing tension is almost impossible, so add several pounds. On the long side, you have to make sure the string exits and enters the next metal loop correctly to keep the spacing right. In the picture, you can see that the string kind of loops back and then down to the next metal loop to begin the 7th main.

Connors preferred the model that had the spot welds at the throat rather than the plastic inserts.

Thanks for reply. I know what you mean by spot welds, but not by plastic inserts, would you have a photo at all please?

Basically it's just a T-2000 that doesn't have any welds... it flexes more.

They also came in multiple weights.

My T-2000 that was stolen was a welded model, and the one I still have is a Flex Light model.
