Hey, I've recently had quite alot of trouble with my Esp, with tuning slippage.
It has Gotoh Magnum Tuners (or something like that) and they're locked, the strings are relatively new and stretched and it still goes out of tune very quickly. It did the exact same with the older strings. The strings I use are D'adario (sp?) guage 9's.

Could it be the nut that is causing the tuning slippage? I need to work out what it is as its really annoying while playing live, thanks in advance.

Nope, its a Gotoh TOM Bridge & Tail

Its also been set up by a trusted local luither.

It could be the nut.

Loosen the strings, and grab a pencil. Rub the pencil lead in the nut. I'm not a firm believer on it, but I do it just incase.

I still have tuning slippage when I play in Drop Db and I wail on the Db5 chord. I think the wailing is probably the problem. I just get too into it sometimes... er...

I'll try that when I can, it's a bone nut, and its become slightly discoloured, could that be a pointer?

I brought the guitar brand new last year, and its an 08 model, could it have wore out already?
I could get the nut replaced if its the problem.

I will when i have the chance to, thanks
If I remember correctly, the luither said something about heat affecting the tuning, but it still goes out of tune after sitting there for an hour.
