I've just built me a new guitar, essentially everything on it is a strat part. My problem is that while I'm tuning a string, all of the others will come out of tune. I'm using the standard issue strat tremolo, in which I have five springs attached, and I don't have a whammy bar in it. So, I'm thinking this problem may be caused by my truss rod not being tensioned right. Your thoughts.

the nut cuts might be a little narrow. you might need to lube all contact points.

maybe the way it's strung up.

or maybe the bridge is still moving somehow, even with the 5 springs.

try blocking the bridge, just to see.

my 65 strat is temper mental when i tune it, i think it has to do with the tremolo... when you change the tension on the strings, the bridge will lift or pull back...
