Stopiece studs stuck

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to lower my stopiece to sit on the body of the guitar but the studs are stuck. I cant tighten or loosen them. Does anyone have any tips on how to unstick these?

First off make sure to loosen the strings to relieve the tension. Make sure you are using a screwdriver with a big head to maximize your tork, and if they are still stuck, then a little spray of WD40 or a drop or two of 3in1 oil, let it sit for a for awhile and try again. It's never a good idea to try to force any hardware on your guitar.

I had the strings off. I'll try a little wd40.
