Hi everyone,

I am needing some help on tuning issues with my Jackson Dnky.

After I've re-strung, and tuned each string and locked them in at the nut, the strings automatically de-tune ever so slightly flat.

This is obviously causing me some annoyance, and even if I 'fine-tune' with the screws, the same thing happens after I hit the strings.

Does anyone know why this could be happening? Someone said to me once that I had to 'set the bridge' but I don't really know how this is supposed to happen, no matter how much I tune up and tune up, it keeps flattening the notes.

Please help me as I can't bear the sounds of an out of tune guitar anymore :-(

Cheers everyone in advance,

M

I think the worst possible scenario would be that your knife edges are dull and need to be 'sharpened up' or replaced. The most likely thing is that your trem needs a good clean, and that there is dirt clogged in your trem posts which is resulting in your tuning instability. You can watch videos on how to clean it on YouTube. The guy wwho manufactures the Tremol-no has a pretty thorough walkthrough on how to do it.
