    well, if you take them off theres a big chance that they may need to get intonated again. but its fairly easy to re intonate them. Just get a tuner, and start on the G string. Tune it exactly to where it needs to be, then pluck the 12th fret and if it is sharp, then tighten the saddle screw, and if its flat, then loosen it. Repeat with D A E strings, and then start over from G to E to make sure it stays in intonation.
