Ok, Ive had my Jackson Dk-2 Dinky for about 4 years. But I've always had trouble staying in tune with my Floyd Rose after using it. I always stretch my strings the right way and have intonated it. It goes way out of Tune. Does anyone else have this problem or can help any way.
-Thanks

You're all noobs and don't know how to work a Floyd right.

Google it, learn children.

The trem on my Jackson never goes out of tune. Never anything the fine tuners can't handle at least.

I have an edge 3 and it stays in tune pretty much perfectly unless the strings are old on it. Does the trem sit level? this could be your issue its always the first thing to check with a floyd.

Floyds are tricky . .. but I agree with HavocStrife .. google it, watch vids, make sure the trem is level...stretch the strings before and after putting them on.. yada yada google it .. it takes practice and patience

This is gonna sound like Im questioning your intelligence but make sure the nut is locked down securely. It could be your locking nut as well try pushing the string above the nut and see if the note changes. It could also be that the knife edges are worn out.

I tighten the nut real tight. So tight that the nut caps have alot of dents on 'em. Maybe that's the problem?

Could be this could prevent them from locking properly you want to tighten but not overtighten just enough so they are snug
