Put a 9 volt battery under the back of the trem in the recessed area--then just change out all strings at once. Make sure to check intonation and trem angle when done. Adjust as needed.

All at once, how else are you supposed to clean the trem and fretboard and polish your frets?

Pull the springs off the trem and take it out.

^this. I've Actually read to tape a pencil, and after you've restrung replace the 9-volt with the taped up pencil, and then tune it a little more, THEN take the pencil out and tune accordingly.

This walkthrough helped me out a ton when i was new to Floyd.
