+1 on this, i upped my string gauge so i could play in e flat, and found that it wouldn't stay in tune, so i added another spring and that solved the problem!

I changed the strings, and still the same problem. So I took it in today and we were looking at it and the adjustment screw in the back was pretty loose.

So after putting it back and tighten it, guitar stays in tune as normal.
yes also this.
the first thing ever to look at is make sure all is tight.( but not too tight).

Re: guitar not staying in tune

Guitars that don't stay in tune belong to owners who can't set them properly.
Period.
Unless they have an ultra crap guitar with rotten parts.
I already had from cheap indonesian guitars to prestige and with my setup they all always stayed in tune.
Learn how to set up it properly then it'll stay in tune

Re: guitar not staying in tune

i would suggest new strings and if new make sure they are stretched good ,and check the stud inserts in the body by using pliers to make sure they are not loose in the body.

thats the only issues i ever had with staying tune an usually strings can be rusty and not cause my ibbys to go out of tune.
so prob. the studsnot locked down or the stud inserts are loose.

guitar not staying in tune

I have an RG550 that decided that it doesn't want to stay in tune. It seems like every time I've been playing lately that I'm constantly re-tuning. I know the weather can make it act screwy sometimes, but I don't remember it being this bad.
