Is it worth the chance on a used guitar with this modification?

Recommended Posts

I'm considering a used J-45 that has a 'Bridge Doctor' installed. The guitar has a brass pin installed on the G string only.

 

Is this some kind of hocus-pocus modification, a solution in search of a problem? The price of the guitar is right but I have reservations about the value of this mod. How easy is it uninstall by the average person with no luthier skills?

Thanks in advance

The bridge doctor is typically installed due to excess bellying of the top behind the bridge. I'm guessing it was installed for a reason and would be hesitant to remove it.
