So I bought a new acoustic a while back, and while i was re-stringing it last night i realized my method of prying those little wedge-thingys holding the strings on the body of the guitar with a screwdriver was too primitive, violent, and harmful for a new guitar.

How do you guys pull those? Is there a certain tool or something?

Branding!?!? THAT'S TOO PROGRESSIVE! I say bring back settlement payments in weights of lead and impalement upon wooden stakes!

Idk pliers could potentially mess up the finish with just a little slip. I'd get a string winder with a notch on the side specifically designed for such purpose.

All you have to do is push the string down into the guitar, under the bridge pin, and the pin will be loose enough that you can just pull it out with your fingers.
