The fine tuner on my Ibanez doesn't work for my Low E, and when you turn it the tuner sort of, sticks at points, so at some points its harder to turn than others.

Any ideas what this could be and how to solve it?
Thanks
#2
it could be cross threaded or stripped.

i would take it completely out and try to thread it in straight, if it won't go in you might need to tap it.

Aah I see.. I might do that in a bit then.

ALSO, whenever i mess with the Edge Pro [For example, Divebombs etc.], the Low E also goes out of tune then, but everything else stays in tune.
Any idea what that is?
Thanks

Fine tuners are a crutch, anyway. If I were you, I'd remove them from your guitar altogether.

this kept happening to me recently, i though the string was slipping in the nut.

Take a look at where the string is clamped at the bridge, at the block. I found my low E was unwinding guess that's what i get for all those divebombs and squels.

TS, disregard everything I have just quoted.
If you're using a guitar with a floating, double-locking trem, you will need fine tuners. This drummer doesn't know what he's talking about. Locking the nut causes the strings to go sharp, and you'll need to retune them with the fine tuners, thus, making them a necessity.

Other than that, pretty much what Gundamnitpete suggested.
