The bridge plate is under the shoundboard so it should have anything to do with painting anything. If you actually mean the bridge plate then you need to cut a piece of steel that is the same shape as the guitar, heat it with a blowtorch until it is hot enough to make watter dance if you drip it on it, then reach inside the guitar, clamp it on the bridgeplate, and let it sit until it starts to cool, then do it a again. You will have to do this several times before you heat things enough to soften the glue but eventually you will want to reach inside with something like a frosting knife and try and pry the thing off. If it doesn't wanna come you need to keep heating it.

To get your bridge of the guitar you heat it from the outside with a heating blanket or iron. Typically you would want to protect the guitar body from the heat but you are going to destroy your guitar anyway when you paint it so there doesn't seem to be much of a need to protect anything.
Not taking any online orders.

i think he just means the bridge itself? Cause you don't even need to touch the bridge plate if you wanna sand it down, If you wanna remove the bridge you gotta heat up the glue and pry it off with a knife
