Read the guide and it says to always change strings one by one - but dont think that would be possible if changing a pickup!

Should you just block the trem and remove the strings evenly?

wedge the trem in place whislt not damaging your paint work. then remove strings and replace pickup.

but then again i didn't do that when replacing a pickup in my mate's RG350 and that still works fine.

I always leave the low e string on (maybe loosen it a bit) so you can hear if the pickup's wired in correctly, and get a feel for how high it should be.

you do all that afterwards. it's easier to keep taking the strings off a Floyd rose style bridge than a TOM or a standard trem. once you know it's working then you string it back up then sort out height.
