My Tremolo is being bad - uh oh

My tuning changes slightly when I raise the bar up and then when i go back down it will go back in tune. it goes from flat to sharp with the raise of the bar. what is going on?

I believe he's referring to the fact it's going OUT of tune upon pulling sharp and returning to neutral.

Check out the jemsite --> guitar --> setup area for tips on tremolo problems. Start there... glen
