Changing Bigsby spring without removing strings?


My new Tru-Arc bridge and Reverend Bigsby spring just arrived. I've changed the bridge before by just loosening the strings. But is there a way to swap out the Bigsby spring without taking the strings off? Any advice is appreciated.


Detune about a step and a half and you can lift the Bigsby arm enough to get the old spring out and the new one in.


It worked. I even managed to swap out the bridge. Thanks again.
