Sounds to me like the strings aren't stretched in before loking down.

Obviously I suggest you stretch them untill they won't stretch anymore.

Send it to me.
I'll stretch them out for you.
It may take a year or 2,but you won't have anymore tuning problems.

I believe the correct way to stretch strings is by placing your finger on the string on the 12 fret and stretching it basically.. I am probably wrong as usual though
