If you use the same gauge of strings and change them one at a time it should be easy. If you change string gauge then you are gonna have to adjust the trem spring. smile.gif

Learn from my mistakes...BLOCK THE TREM OFF BEFORE YOU TAKE ANY STRINGS OFF!!!!! Even doing them one at a time, it will be screwy if you don't block the trem with some wood or an eraser. Find anything to wedge in by the sustain block so it can't move.

A 9v battery does the trick quite nicely. smile.gif

Yea, I have used a 9v wrapped tightly in electrical tape to avoid causing any damage to my guitar.
