Re: Is the height of my trem bar correct?
And the least amount of steps would just be to block the bridge at maximum angle and pull the strings [I always pull the string retainer bar]. Do whatever you want, clean, polish, oil, maintain, tighten tuners, etc, then put the new strings on and tune. Of course knowing about how much tension to put on each string to keep them all sharp to make sure you detune into tune takes some practice. Tune up to tune too much and you know you'll end up in runaway spring shock, which is a whole other tech page.
