Thats what I think too, Penguin.

If its not the case, I would start checking all your hardware and the neck and body where they meet. If it a double locking, and you're sick of this issue. you can block it so it only dumps tension when used. Without it in our hands to take a look at it, makes it harder to diagnose.

If this has happened during string change and you removed all the strings at once, it can take quite a while to get the tuning solid again, or a Difference in string gauge can cause problems too. I have only seen 2 roadstars, one is hanging with screws through the body to a entrance way. Sad to say the least. So do not know much about that model. I offered to buy it but they will not budge even at 150.00.....
