    I found a Guyatone SB-28 today and immediately bought it. It has a floating bridge and I have spent the better part of the day trying to figure out how to remove the strings. There is a block of wood in the trapezoid and I can't see any way to remove the strings without removing the block of wood (and I can't seem to do that... Remove the wood). Does anyone have any experience with this type of bridge? 20211016_204613.jpg
     
  2. Do you have a picture of the underside of the tailpiece? It should have slots that hold the string and ball end something like this. You’d remove them from underneath. If not, post a pic of the other side and I’m sure we can figure it out.

    What happens if you remove those two cap nuts?

    Here it is all cleaned up. The first pictures are right after I bought it. It took a while to get all the stickers off. Thank you so much for your help, Slater!
