I have my guitar out and the "base plate" is tilted more towards the back body of the guitar. I opened the back and loosened the screws a bit, but it's still tilted back. I am afraid that if I loosen the screws too much, they'll come out and the springs will go flying. Can anybody help?
Did you tune it up after you loosened the springs?
No not yet, will that make a pretty big difference?
yeah those screws are deep and have large threads. I doubt they will come out unless you loosen them a ridiculous amount.
Yea I loosened them a bit more, and now that I am tuning the strings it seems like the bridge is raising a bit. Thanks for the advice.
