Step 2: Remove the Bridge Pins
Grab your wire cutters now. Gently grasp onto the base of the round part of the bridge pin. BE CAREFUL as they break easily...i've had bad experiences...i think they're pretty expensive too, especially for a teen like me.
Anyway, being careful to hold the pegs carefully, use the saddle to push down the handles of the wirecutters thereby raising the pegs up and out of the hole that they're in
do this for all of the pins and remove the strings while you're at it. be sure not to do it while the strings are still tense! BE CAREFUL!
think of it as what you'd do when using a crowbar.
be sure to avoid directly pulling it out if you can, they tend to break when you do that..and the wirecutters or pliers that you're using will dent the pins.
thanks to Laserage for this tip:
in the string winder, you might probably find a notch in the end that you can use to pull out the bridge pins and avoid breaking them! i didn't know what that notch in my spinner was until just now so thanks Laserage!
