    I wanted to replace the arm bushing and a couple of bridge parts were not original on my DGT so I ordered the screw kit. I will ditch the original plastic sleeve since it is sort of mishapen...do you really have to go through the instructions like on the John Mann site...take the whole bridge apart and threading the bushing etc..? Seems like you could just get it out with needle nose pliers and just push the new one in...am I wrong? I don't want to mess it up if you have to do all that.

    I'd highly recommend taking the trem off the body to do this. It requires considerable force to remove/replace, which is way more than the trem screws/knife edge is subjected to in normal operation.

    Trust whatever John Mann says, he is the Mann after all!

    Thank you very much for your reply. I sure had no idea it was so involved. It definitely took a lot of work to get the bridge set up for proper action so this is a real bummer...now I basically have to redo the whole thing.
