Re-stringing Ibanez SA (floating Tremolo Bridge)


I am new to this guitar. Can I remove all the strings at once, or will that cause problems with the Bridge springs? I would like to remove the strings, clean and condition the fretboard and re-string it. Just not sure if I should do one string at a time.

Remove them all, no problems.

If you put heavier or lighter strings on, your gonna need to adjust the springs anyway.
(bridge should sit flat with the top when tuned).

Good luck
