    Ok when I was playing my guitar strap became loose and my Wolfie Special fell. The bridge became messed up and is now on top of the screw on one side. My question is, Do I have to take off, or loosen my strings before I unskrew the bridge to put it back over the skrew?

    Or if i just loosen the strings will it slide back into place? I am only asking all this, because I dont have hte tool to unscrew the locking trem, to loosen the strings. I just use my fine tuners most of the time.

    I don't know if you HAVE to do it this way or not, but if it was me, I would definitely take off all of the strings before trying to reset the trem. If you try to move the trem back without taking off the strings, not only will it be really difficult, but you could cause some permanent damage. Also, by taking off the strings, you will be able to see if the trem sits against the body like it should when you get it reset. If not, I'd take it to a repair shop. Since you say that you don't have the tools to unlock the nut, try going to Wal Mart or somewhere and get a set of allen wrenches. It takes a 3mm allen wrench to loosen the screws on the locking nut, and a 2.5mm allen wrench to turn the screws that set the intonation. Hope this helps you. Nothing's worse than a broken guitar, especially a Wolfie.

    I would loosen the strings until they are almost completely slack, and then pull the bridge into place. I think if you take the strings off, you'll just be fighting spring tension, and then you'd have to loosen those too. If nothing actually BROKE, then you have nothing to worry about. Good luck!
