Hipshot Tremolon/String Change

Postby GaryL » Wed Jul 11, 2018 5:16 am

Hi everyone,

I can use some guidance. I got my V6x a couple of days ago. Amazing! I realized that I never owned a guitar with a floating bridge. I'm not sure on how to go about changing the strings. Can I remove all of the strings at once? Do I need to block the bridge before doing anything? If i have to remove each string and replace one at a time, how do you clean the neck? etc.

The easiest way is one string at a time. When you have to clean the fretboard or work on the frets, you will need to block the bridge. There are several ways to do it; a quick Google search should give you lots of options. (I don't own a guitar with that bridge, so I can only be of limited help; sorry.)
