So i have a schecter hellraiser ,the version without the floyd rose.3 weeks ago i changed the string gauge from 9ths to 10ts and im experiencing trouble with keeping the guitar in tune.the tuners seem to do a little leap in a certain point when im tuning my guitar and it stays in tune for about 2 songs and then i need to retune it again.im getting desperate and its really anoying me!!
also i found out that i have locking tuners on my guitar and i dont really know whats that?

Your strings are still stretching, there isn't much left though. Just sit down with a tuner and keep tuning or, or keep playing it, eventually it will lock in.

It took my guitar half an hour LOL.


I put the new strings 3 weeks ago.its impossible they are stretching dis long!

Well I dunno, you have got a liscenced floyd after all, and the Schecter ones often seem to have this problem.

This is the 2nd thread I have attempted to answer about Schecters not stretching strings quickly enough.


Please read what i said.I DONT have floyd rose sistem.I got the string-through body type.

Drastic slips in tuning actually sound like you just strung it wrong.
You can call me Aaron.

Is it going out of tune flat? Chances are the strings are not fuly stretched if it is. Honestly there isn't much else it could be other than you didn't attach the strings to the posts well enough, and there is some slack in the windings that is tightening as you play.

This.

I bork'd the low e on my RG2EX1 somewhat and it was slipping like mad for a couple of weeks. That's what you get when you're not paying attention though

or just get a graph tech nut self lubricating. which probally
came stock on his guitar, but the graphite does work, its best
to get the graphite in a tube rather than from a pencil

hardware store will have it to lubricate key locks

That's what she said


On another note, it's pretty easy to mess up the treble strings your first few re-stringing attempts.
