1. Take note as to whether the bridge is pulled closer to the headstock or if it is pulled away from the headstock.

2a. If pulled away, loosen the spring screws found in the back cavity of the guitar until the bridge is flush. Remove string clamps and retune using steps 10-12.

2b.If the bridge is pulled closer to the headstock, then tighten the spring screws until the bridge is flush. Remove string clamps and retune using steps 10-12.

The tuning process will probably have to be repeated multiple times for it to stay in tune and the bridge may have to be adjusted again. Adjusting the bridge and retuning should be repeated until the bridge is flat with respect to the body and the guitar stays in tune. Note: Ensure that the string clamps are not tightened when adjusting the spring screws or when tuning with the tuning machines on the headstock as this may break the strings. Once tuning and bridge angle are adjusted to preference, the string change is complete.
