    I've been having trouble achieving stability with my "new" RG655. I bought it last month and it was on display for several months in the shop. I tried setting it up and now it behaves strangely. When I bend a string it falls out of tune dramatically, but if I do a dive-bomb with the trem...

    Hello, I got this Rg 655 to test from GC and I'm deciding whether or not to keep it. A major factor is tuning stability. Some background: I've owned a vintage fender style tremolo guitar before and also returned a Sterling Jp 60 from Music Man because the string would kink and it wouldn't stay...

    Hello folks, yet another thread about the Edge 3's tuning stability. While on my vacation in California, I was looking for some Ibanez standard guitars. However, I found out that the new 2015 versions had been fitted with disgusting "STD. DL" bridges. So, as I covered about 70miles radius going...

    Hello gentlemen. I have a fixed bridge question. I've said it before, and I know that it's pretty hard to believe, but I've never owned a fixed bridge before. I've had two vintage trems and between 7 and 10 fully floating trems. As well as had many others in my posession while doing setups for...

    Hi everyone, Like the title says I have a problem with the locking nut on my guitar, here it is: I lock the strings at the nut with the clamps (tight enough), but I am still able to tune the E and A string with the tuning pegs on the headstock!! And it's only those two strings, the other two...

    I have recently been in the market for a good seven string guitar, and the prestige series are a bit over my head in price. I was wondering if the Edge-Zero II Tremolo is a good system. I have heard alot of crap about tremolo systems on the standard RG Tremolo series. I have not been able to...

    I've been having tuning stability issues with my s470b lately. Every time i use the whammy bar, the g-string drops way out of tune, but the other strings stay fine. Can anyone offer suggestions as to what the problem might be? I've already tried replacing the strings, but to no avail. I don't...

    i just picked up a used 1996 hamer slammer series diablo with a licensed floyd rose. one problem though, the FLOYD WONT STAY IN TUNE! i've ruled out that it's nut a locking nut problem, i've stretched the strings, i've made the bridge is parallel to the body, it still simply wont stay in tune...

    Hey. Last week I got a brand new Ibanez S320, and its been a real nice improvement over my Squier bundle. :D However, I'm having a problem with its tuning stability. After a short period of playing, all of the strings become flat by a noticeable amount. From what I can tell, after this point...

    Hello guys, I am currently having a problem on both my guitars, an Ibanez 350EX and a 2550EGK. They are both locking trems, and I can tune them both thanks to an online source which taught me a certain method. Recently, I have changed the guitar strings with fresh new sets, and after stretching...

    I bought a new JEM at christmas and have been playing it ever since. I try and change my strings as often as possible and also polish the fret board etc. I sat down after having changed the strings (correctly, of course) for half an hour and made sure the strings were stretched in, but they just...
