I tried doing a search, but haven't found any threads that specify important concerns one must keep in mind while installing a new bridge. I just bought a Hipshot A style for my 5 string, and am apprehensive about installing it given my history of screwing things up. Primarily, I'm concerned about the neck and truss rod. Does the truss rod need to be loosened when all the strings are taken off? Is there a way to check if the tension is set correctly? Once I install the new bridge and start to put the strings on, do I have to add tension immediately to counteract the strings or should I wait until all are installed? As always, thank you for your time.
