Hex screws, LP Junior bridge
regarding adjusting an LP Junior bridge forward & back with the hex screws..
On an old copy I had some hex screws become stripped when I did not loosen the strings enough before adjusting the bridge backward...
I have a new bridge now and would like to avoid this problem! (of my own making)
Seems obvious now that I should loosen the strings before doing this, but
*is there a trick to doing it without unravelling the winds of the strings on the tuners?*
Possibly something similar to the way we capo at the first fret when loosening strings and adjusting a bolt-on neck?
