So, I have an awesome Lite Ash Stratocaster, however it goes out of tune pretty easily... If I so much as touch the tremolo bar, the G B & E string go way sharp. If I even bend the string a little too hard, it goes super flat... So I was thinking about getting these http://www.guitarcenter.com/Gotoh-Locking-Tuners-Right-Hand---6-Pack-361070-i1129918.gc But I don't wanna buy them if for whatever reason they don't fix my tuning problem. And yes, I wound my strings pretty well. Do you think these would do the trick? Thanks

Did you stretch your strings?

Yeah, it helped a little bit with the bending, but I still can't use the tremolo bar.

Do you have it set up right? There are a LOT of people out there who don't know how to properly set up their tremolo bar, just checkin to see if you are one of them

Erm... Don't know, haha. I have only ever used tune-o matics and I am very unfamiliar with strats. As far as I know it just screws in. How could I not set it up right?

You would be suprised how touchy it can be. Ive never owned a tuneomactic, lol. I learned how to do all of this technical stuff because Ive had a lot of problems with my Ibanez and its floyd rose. Im really bad at explaining this stuff so here is a link to the Fender website's section on how to properly set up a Stratocaster. If you are uncomfortable with it I would take it to a tech, it may be all you need to fix your tuning problem. Its always worth getting your guitar properly set up no matter what. Good luck, hope this helps.

Typo.

If you restring wrong, your tuning stability suffers.
