hello, didnt know whether to stick this in this forum or the pickup one - but here it is:
I'm replacing the pickups on my RG470, which means taking off all the strings, which will bugger my trem (its a lo-trs). From what I've read it's a bastard and impossible to do - which is a blatant lie as otherwise nobody would mod such guitars or replace bridges etc.
I've been looking around for suitable guidelines but with no joy, and I can't afford to pay someone else / want to learn these things anyway.
Anybody got any words of wisdom as to how I should go about it, or could point me in the right direction?

Thanks for your time,

Andy

Click the big, swirled banner at the top of the page. Rich has detailed instructions on how to remove your bridge without removing all the stings.

As the other guys said, go to Ibanezrules.

You should be ok as long as you block the trem before removing the strings so the springs are roughly in the right position when you put the new strings on

Don't remove all the strings. Just pull off the whole bridge with all of the strings attached. That's easier. Again, see Rich's site.
