  2. How much string should you leave when stringing a guitar?

Should you cut excess guitar strings?

I always cut my strings. Because they're doing it wrong to begin with. You should extend the string out about 2" past the tuning peg and cut it (or slightly more length if you want more wraps around the peg, but 2" is plenty).

How much string should you leave when stringing a guitar?

Anywhere between 2-4 windings will be plenty and, so long as you are restringing your guitar in a conventional way, this should ensure that you have enough tension in your string to maintain your tuning and avoid any string slippage.
