Tuning Trems and Trouble - The Triple T Turmoil
I've got a Squire Strat from '97. *It's a quality instrument for the price and has been good to me so far, except the trem. *The trem has always popped the whole guitar out of tune every time I go near the thing. *Especially the g-string (no pun intended). *My g-string pops out all the time, it's really annoying (oh, this is not going well). *It tunes fine when I'm raising, but pops down a semitone everytime I tune down. *I've heard that bypassing the string trees can help with this, is this a good idea, or would it reduce nut tension and therefore sustain?
