Hi,
I recently tried to change the strings on my Epi Futura FX (Original FR) but the String Lock Screw (on the bridge) won't move/turn. Whats wrong?

I've been using that thread, but can't the follow the instructions cause the actual screw won't turn, which won't let me remove the string.

Well do you mean the nut for the saddle? Just get an allen wrench and twist it counter clockwise till it pops and releases. And make sure you dump the trem while doing so.

It may be due to mishanding that rounded ur screw, which means your allen key cant grip on the screw when you turn it due to it being worn out. If that happens, your seriously screwed, but i doubt OFRs have lousy quality screws.

On that guitar the screws for the floyd are terrible and strip really bad. I noticed mine were stripping so I replaced them with some screws from Stewart-Macdonald I believe. The screws are much higher quality.

If I were you I would order some new nut clamp screws, and get the existing one off with a very strong vice grips unless someone has a better way.

Edit: Oops I see that it is the bridge screw. I have not had a problem with that yet but it is very likely that could strip too.
