How many of you take off youre TOM bridge when youre changing strings? I tape mine down so that the thumbwheels dont turn when i clean the body, but i was wondering how many people just take the whole thing off. How do you re-set it up after?
I would always leave the two outer strings on to clean around and under it.
It's not entirely voluntary. If the bridge stays on, I leave it on. If it falls off, I leave it off until I'm ready to put the strings back on. I try not to fiddle with the screws, but adjusting the action is pretty easy.
