Neck refuses to come off
During the course of a restring I commenced the routine removal of my guitar's AANJ-type neck. As I proceeded to systematically remove the screws, I approached my guitar neck with a traditional motion, expecting, as had been established in previous experiences, that the neck would come off by a mere pull from the body.
I felt a subconscious unease when this RG2550Z adamantly refused to let go of its neck! Fearing that I would generate a screw-up of a royal scale, I decided to retreat to the helpful confides of the Jemsite forums rather than revert to the use of potentially damaging primal and unregulated force.
How shall I approach this matter?
