So everytime I use my whammy bar, all my strings come out of tune. Anyone know why or how to fix it? Thanks.

Try rubbing some graphite in your nut.

A whammy system is your bridge type, like floyd rose for example.

yeah, the graphite might help, but you really need a better whammy system. I have a very similar one, but I just put it all the way against the body, since I barely ever use it....

You could always install a nut lock.

Honestly, stay away from the whammy. You don't need it (at least not yet), and it doesn't make you cool (I'm not trying to imply that that's your use of it).
I'm that dude with the fro.

tying something around the strings (I mean before the 1st fret on the top of the guitar) works for some guitars, thats what I did and it worked pretty well.

I have the exact same guitar; it was my first one. First off, any non-locking trem will go out of tune when you hammer down on it. There's no avoiding it.

The best fix is to get a pencil and rub graphite into the nut.

Also, are you are stringing the guitar right? I remember when I first started playing that I would slide the string throught the bridge, pull it tight, wrap it around the tuner a few times, slide it through the hole, and tune up. If this is how you are stringing your guitar, there's your problem.

The last and most expensive option is to get a locking tremolo system installed. Basically, it is a nut with locking studs that lock your strings in place once you are tuned up. There are micro-tuners at the bridge that let you fine-tune your strings after you have tuned up and locked the studs. Most of these are floating trems, meaning that they roll forward and backwards and are held in place by the tension of the strings and and springs inside the body of the guitar. The most popular choices are the Floyd Rose Original/Licensed and the Edge series tremolos; I don't know why kaosxrocker said to stay away from the III though..
