I have a strat-style guitar, 2-pivot floating trem, locking tuners, graphite nut
Everything is lubricated and set-up
I can go hendrix on tremolo and it stays in tune pretty well

but
even minor bend on 3rd string detunes it (thanks gods only single 3rd string) about 1/4 step. Pulling down the tremolo retunes it back to pitch perfectly.

I suspected nut first, but it's lubricated and manufacturer's website says it's graphite. I have similar issue with 2nd string, but it's almost unnoticeable.


SO
1. if I block the tremolo, would it eliminate the problem?
2. if yes, is it OK to use 5 strings + tightened screws in the back instead of wood block?

no, it's similar to usual trem found on MIA strats
actually it's Cort HBS-2, CFA-III trem designed by Cort. AWESOME sounding guitar, but that 3rd string pisses me off so much
