Changing the strings on a Shorty guitar. It is necessary to remove the bridge to change the strings. Completely slacken all strings and remove from the tuners. Slacken the 2 large bridge retaining screws, pull back the bridge and lift it out. The old strings can now be removed and new strings attached to the underside of the bridge. Replace the bridge and gently tighten the 2 screws. The new strings can now be wound onto the appropriate tuners.
