How do you change the strings on a Hofner Shorty travel guitar?
On the Hofner Shorty, you will need to manually remove the bridge with a screw drive or similar tool. There are large screws on either side of the bride that when removed, the bridge will come off entirely. At this point, you can unwind the strings from the tuners on the head of the guitar, which will completely slacken the strings. Push the strings out the back side of the bridge to remove the old string, and insert the new strings via the same hole in the corresponding order they were removed. Make sure all new strings are looped through the bridge, then set the bridge in place. At this time, with all the strings hooked in and the bridge set in place, you can now attach the strings to the tuners.
