pitch problem - my 7vwh

for a start this guitar is heaven, suits me down to the ground, but recently it hasn't been staying in tune.
ok when i'm playing normally it's fine and when push down and come back up again it's perfect but when i pull up and come back down, the whole thing has gone up in pitch very slighty, *but not the individual strings go out, it's all of them, they all stay in tune with each other but not my vai cd's!. *can anyone help?

my other problem with this guitar is that my girlfriend is getting jealous! *LOL

pitch problem

You could have buggered-up knife edges. Also, the nut could be loose or you may just have really worn strings. (probably not if it's just going out of tune when you pull up).

pitch problem

I have this problem occasionally with my 7VWH too. *If it's been a month or two, mine is always fixed with a new set of strings. *If the strings are new, make sure the nut is clamped down well.
