I recently bought a Ibanez gax75 with a drop-d tuner, and am having alot of trouble figuring out how to calibrate it.
Any tips would be great =)

Tune your E string to pitch. Change the downshifter to the drop position and use a screwdriver to adjust the smaller set screw, which will allow you to tune the lower note to proper pitch. Tightening the small screw will raise pitch and loosening it will drop the pitch.

Yeah, you need to go back and forth a bunch of tiems for it to settle. Tune it to E, then drop it and tune that to D, then flip it back to E and tune it to E and repeat back and forth until they're both even. It only took a few flips for my hipshot to be in tune. Good luck!
