Get a peg winder, youll be twisting the hardware with your fingers forever. Slip the string through the bridge and all the way up to the peg. Slide the string thru but not tight, make the tension so taht you can fit your 4 fingers perpendicular to the body, over the pickups...this length is usually good. Then just start winding the peg. Just make sure when you are winding it, the string doesnt start overlapping on the peg, smooth it out with your other hand so that it wraps neatly. Take note of the direction and make sure you wind all the same way (if your tuners are on both sides of the head, turn those the opposite way). Otherwise, your gonna have a fun time tuning the guitar later. Do this the same for all, and when all the strings are on, clip off the excess string with wire cutters. Try to snip them really closely or else youll catch your finger on it, and trust me, thats not fun.

Get an experienced player to do it. Because then you'd have to tune it and I bet you won't get that right.
Tuning a guitar is the easiest thing in the world to do, so long as you have a tuner...it doesnt take an experienced player to do it.
