Ok, I just got my Tone Pros replacement wraparound bridge for my PRS SE in the mail today. One small problem- the bridge studs are threaded differently, so to get the advantages of being able to lock the bridge down, I have to pull the stud inserts.
How difficult is this to do, and how likely am I to be able to do this myself without, say, fucking anything up?
quite easy. One note. Make sure you can see the entire top of the stud, no finish on top. If htere is, score it with a razor blade so the stud comes out clean.
Put a towel on the top so you dont marr the finish.
Put a block of some sort (wood, a tin of mints, something) on top of the towel to use as a cantilever. Grab the stud thats inserted into the insert with pliers, and pry the stud out rocking the pliers on the block. work around it in a circular fashion
