Re: zr bridge help

cool, one last question. when removing the springs is it safer to unscrew them at the block or pull the loops off from the sides of the little bar thingie. im having trouble pulling them off the sides.

Re: zr bridge help

All strings off will probably be even easier.

Re: zr bridge help

Thanks Rich! I figured id change strings while im at it though. How would you recommend i incorporate this fix while changing strings? Also, are there any nono's i should be aware of before proceeding?

Re: zr bridge help

Detune the E, B, and G a bit and lock the nut. Once you pull the springs off the bridge should come forward enough to have slack strings. Then just pull the nuts off the tops of the studs and the bridge should pull straight up and off.
