General tech questions

Is there an easy way to unpin a bridge?


I'm having trouble intimating the low e string in my Gretsch 5420T. I need to move the bridge back an 1/8". How can I union it safely?


Just arc the hole on the bottom of the bridge so it'll pivot on the treble side pin.


Electromatic bridges aren't pinned, they're "secured". Just get a regular bridge base, sand it carefully to match the arch radius of the guitars top and leave it floating. The "secured" construction is a tone sucker.
