Hello everyone,
I know its kinda off-topic but i really need some help. Recently I bought a second hand guitar - lag arkane A200-BRS, it's quite good, but for some reason I am not able to loosen the plastic pieces, which are holding the strings ( not sure about the name), so I cant tune my guitar properly. Strangely, as you can see in the pics, the last piece is fine, but the other two cant be removed.
Thanks in advance!


Because you do not tune the guitar with the tuning pegs if you have a locking nut like that. You use the fine tuners on the bridge.

My big fat guess is that you have a Floyd Rose style trem on that guitar? If so you need to use the round thumb screws on the top of the bridge to tune the guitar (see pic).

Now, the fact you cannot disengage the locking nut is a problem when it comes to restringing. Are the allen key screws stripped? If so I'd just get some pliers, try to take them off like that and replace the entire locking nut assembly.

EDIT: Didn't see the screws were off in the second pic. I'd say lightly try to tap them off with a screwdriver and a hammer.
