Question Original Edge one string out of tune :(

Hey guys,
So after me taking the strings off and back on my rg570 (awesome guitar btw) I noticed that whenever I pull up on the bar, my g string goes out of tune and messes up the tuning of the whole guitar. I know it's only the g string because when I take off the locking nut, and return the one string to pitch, the whole guitar goes back into tune. Am I missing something? I'm pretty new to the locking trem stuff considering I've only had the axe for three weeks...

Re: Original Edge one string out of tune :(

1) Are you sure you're tightening down the locking block enough? Don't use an insane amount of force, but you want it snug so the string doesn't slide out.

2) Is there a groove/notch that has developed in either the little block or the saddle, allowing the string to move?

3) Is the intonation screw tight? If not, the whole saddle could be moving. There's a chance the threads could be stripped on either screw or the tremolo under plate.

4) Is the locking nut down tight, using a little less force than what you would use to lock the string in place in the saddle?

5) Has a groove/notch developed on either the locking pad or the nut, not allowing it to apply force to the string?

The string isn't stretched until it stops stretching with the pullup.

Stretch all the strings until they won't.
