tremolo system from rg 770

hi, i own a rg 770, and since a few weeks i got problems to keep the guitar in tune after using the tremolo. (of course i add new strings :-)) i tried to fix this problem with a blackbox, but its still remains, so i kicked off the blackbox. has anyone a guess, or face the same probs? thx steini

i'd suggest the ibanezrules.com setup guide. Should fix any tuning issues you have.

Re: tremolo system from rg 770

Hi everybody,
thx for your links to solve my tuning probs, but i found out following, which i have no explanation: when i lay the rg on the table (flat) and start tuning, it keeps in tune. as soon as i take the rg in the playing position, the tuning goes flat, i do not touch the strings or the arm. has anybody an idea? thx steini

Have you checked if the neck is tight in the joint?

Ever hear of a thing called gravity?

Never tune in anything other than playing position.
