I tuned everything up (Tuned with it unlocked, then used the fine tuners), and then I played a bit and it held it fine, but when I used the tremolo, it went out of tuning. Also, it seems that it goes a bit sharp or flat depending on which way I last used the tremolo. Like I'll pull back, and it'll stay a bit sh arp even if I leave it alone.

Edit: Seems like itl'l barely hold a tuning at all. Did I get a lemon?

its all in how you set it up. be patient. as you learn its intricacies you will find your guitar stays in tune more.

How new are you strings?

Factory strings. Not sure if they're stretched or what.

is the trem level?

you're not gonna want to take a dump in a gross, off-colored, vintage toilet. you want something that is white and pearly; something that shines. something that you can put your cheeks against and say, "f*** yeah"

it should be slightly tilted towards the neck, so the knife edges are parallel with the body, you could have slight wear or a bit of crap on the knife edges or studs that are preventing the trem from returning to neutral (parallel) when you dive or pull up...

how old are the strings? try replacing them

did you lock the string retainer blocks tight (check to see if they are still tight), you`ll be amazed how easily this is overlooked when changing strings.......i`ve done it 3 times now (doh)

Edit:- just spotted it`s a new guitar (read your other thread) probably needs a setup.....it`s been sat in a cold warehouse, van, shipping container etc...read the manual then set it up....(factory set up means nothing)

You got the guitar just the other day, right?

I doubt the strings have been stretched properly.

Take the string and bend it so it stretches. You can pull on the string at all spots on the fretboard and around the bridge, just make sure to stretch it.

It's just that he doesn't know how to set-up a trem. TS, your going to have to set-up the bridge for it to stay in tune.
You can call me Aaron.

Alright, I won't be able to get it set up for a while, but at least now I know its not a defect with the guitar. Thanks.
