well I just got my Schecter C-1 fr last night, but i was at a concert so i didn't bother with it when i came home except to open the box. So now it's the next day and I was going to set it up and all, so my first thing to do was to take the plate off the springs. So i unscrew the screws, and it doesn't come out. I start trying to see if i can pull it out, nothing.

Any suggestion's?
use a flat screwdriver or hobby knife to gently pry it open

*or, you can use the same screwdriver and pry it open by one of the screwdriver holes, so you won't risk scratching the body

Until your tuned up to pitch and have done basic setup stuff I don't think you need to start playing with the tremolo spring tensions yet! They'll change somewhat during setup anyway and still need readjusting later on.
Moving on.....
