I need help with this. When my string broke, my bridge raised a bit. To bring that bridge back down, should I take the cover off the back, and loosen the screws? Or wouldn't it suffice to take off a spring? I don't wanna screw this up any, so I need someone's good advice.
just put on a new string of the same gauge and it should go back just fine

^ as first poster said, and if you feel like putting on bigger or smaller strings, open the bridgeplate and tighten the springs accordingly and retune it.
