if it has a tremolo system then thats probably the problem, tuning one string can get the other string out of tune

Yes also if your tremolo unit isnt level it will cause your strings to be flat even after tuning them.

It doesnt have a tremolo system though!, Its a string thru

and it has Grover tuners, I thought they were supposed to be the best

yeah..try either new strings or it just might be that your tuning pegs are unwinding themselves

auight, you got tonepros which means that there is no tremolo, esspecially on the case of this guitar. The problem may probably be a defect in the grovers. I agree that they are the best, but sometimes things can just go wrong. Also, i would check the intonation as that could also effect the tuning. Anothing thing is that maybe the strings are defective. Or maybe the neck is bowed. It could be a number of problems. If the problem persists, just take to your guitar store, see if they can help you. Hope your problem is corrected, i know that would mess me up.

Yeah make sure that your strings are on properly and that they arent slipping if you restring improperly this will happen causing it to constantly go out of tune.

EDIT: I would use Ernie Ball Not Even Slinkys for that I used to use them when I played lower tunings.

um, i tune to C (1/2 down from d), and I use DRs tite fit. Like 9.5s are the best because they are durable and have a lot of strength, but are also slingy and have a nice easy feel to them. THey are the best i think.

for lower tunings ive always used Dadarrios, but the Ernie Balls hes talking about should do just fine...and yeah just like the other guy said it might be a defect in your tuning pegs....
