I know there is tread to show this....but i have lousy dial so im jsut going to ask...what steps should i take before taking a pickup out of my ibanez with the floyd...like how do i keep it from flying out of the body
im better than normal....im abnormal!
firstly put a ruler or something stiff and long(rofl) under the intonation posts or wateva u call them, so it prevents the floyd from falling into the body.

then take the strings off, or loosen them really loose if u dont wanna change strings.

then unscrew the mounting ring screws and ye go from there.

then after u changed the pups, tune up and take out the ruler and hopefully the floyd will be parallel to the body, if not, adjust the tension at the back
