Yeah my high E keeps going out of tune. It's a fender strat and i cant afford anything better at the moment, any cheap repairs for the tuning peg?

try stretching the string, or undo the string and use pliers to tighten the nut around the tuning peg. Then put on a new string and stretch it out properly.

I don't know how you wrap your strings when you tune, but I generally pull the string tight, wrap it around the tuning peg twice, then put the end through the tuning peg. After that just tune it and stretch it like normal. I never have string slippage when I wrap it like that. If you are already doing something like that, I wish you luck on a quick fix for your tuning peg.
CAN I GET A +1?!

yeah i've been playing nearly 2 years now and replace my strings and stretch them so that isnt the problem, these strings are a few weeks old now so its definatley the peg. people see squire and automatically go n00b, its all i can afford at the moment like i said. going to try victorinox's idea and tighten the bolt up. thanks for the help

I wrap it, then before I cut them I wrap the end halfway then through the hole, then do that again the other way a couple times, no slippage
I'm FAT!

when you take the string off, try wiggling the tuning peg. If it wiggles loosely, then that'll be your problem. just use a pair of regular pliers (NOT needle-nose) and tighten the nut around it while holding the bottom of the tuning machine on the underside of the headstock
