Okay, you're probably referring to the newer low-end strat-copy models Fender is currently producing. If you have an original Starcaster, then it surprises me that you don't know how to change a string. Anyway, as with any Stratocaster, you hold the string where the ball-end is facing down. There should be a backplate with six holes in the lower part of it. Each hole represents where a string will sit on the top of the bridge (located directly above the backplate.) Look at the bridge. There will be six "saddles" that hold the string in place. On each saddle, there are to screws with which, you can adjust "action" (string height)with an Allen wrench or hex key. You put the string through the backplate, guide it through, so that it will come through the saddle and bring the string up the neck. There will be a "nut" at the top of the neck which is cut to let a certain gauge string sit in it (I use nines or ".009 to .042" for my strat). Let the respective sized string sit in the groove of the nut, and bring it toward the machine head (tuner). Fender headstocks are famous for having six inline machine heads, so if you are starting with the top string, you will put it through the shaft of the farthest machine head. And the lowest E string will be placed in the closest machine head, etc. I always wrap each string twice around the shaft of the machine head twice before putting it through. Tighten the string by turning the machine head to the right or left, depending on which head you're turning. Tune it to whatever tuning you like. If you're a beginning guitarist, probably standard tuning. eBGDAE Use a chromatic tuner if you haven't had experience with other instruments.
Since you already have a 4-string Fender jazz guitar, you should look at a Rickenbacker 4003 Bass. Rickenbacker makes good 5-string bass guitars that are under $500.
They come stock with Fender .009's but any .009 string will work.
It's possible...SRV used "13"s on his Strat, meaning his little "E" string was a 13 instead of a 9 or 10, like most guitarists use. He also tuned his guitar down a half step to an Eb, instead of the standard E tuning.
Remove and replace it.
To change strings on a Fender Acoustic Guitar, locate the machine post for the string and wind it down. When the string is loose, pull it off the head of the guitar, and the bridge of the guitar. Whichever string is missing, grab the corresponding string from a packet of new strings, and feed it through the bridge. The string should also be fed through the hole in the machine post. Once you tighten the string, you can return it to its natural note, and complete the whole process again for the remaining strings.
To restring an acoustic guitar you have to drop the end if the string in the bridge and replace the pin. Then string it through the tuning post, kink it, and tune it.
Fender Catastrater makes the best bass guitars.
Of course, but as a lifelong guitarist, I advise that when a string breaks, it's past due time to replace all six (or 12, as the case may be).

Its worth $100 to $500.
Yes, you can, but not on an electric guitar. It might not be recommended, but it definitely can be done.
It could be, but it is most commonly known as just a six string bass. it is a guitar with slightly thicker strings and tuned to sound like an electric bass guitar.
The six string guitar has a history spanning back to the 17th Century as an ancestor of the modern classical guitar.The electric six string guitar was a concept that was initially developed by the jazz musician Les Paul (real name Lester Paulfus) in the 1930's. The idea was the topic of discussion between him and his friends Leo Fender and Paul Bigsby. The first production electric guitar was the Broadcaster by Fender in 1951.The Precision Bass was also first taken into production in 1951, having been based on the much larger upright bass. In the case of the bass guitar the electric version was first, followed by the acoustic.
if you are taking about the guage of strings it depends on what you prefer. if you want them to bend easily go light. pick medium if you want them to be heavier.
second thickest if its a 4 string bass or 6 string guitar
a five string guitar
The top line of a guitar tab is the high E string on the guitar, or the bottom string when looking down at the neck. (The thinnest string)
The lowest string on a guitar is an E .........
you go to a guitar shop and get another string
top as in thickest is the E on a 6 string ... heaviest top string on a 7 string guitar is a B
on a five string bass guitar there are five strings, and on a six string bass guitar there are six strings
The 6th string on a guitar is the finest, highest pitched string. Although it is located at the bottom of the the guitar neck, it is called the 'top string' because it has the highest tone (when in tune).
fifth string on a guitar
A six-string guitar has 6 strings on it, hence the name "six-string" guitar. ,- Roxas Riku
You can, but I wouldn't suggest it. If you use a higher gauge string, you won't be able to tune down successfully, especially if you have a higher gauge string in place of the low-E.
