Hey dudes, I've got my Gibson SG Standard here and I've been working on some stuff in Cliffs of Dover and when I'm doing those bends in the intro, it will always throw the strings a bit flat. Driving my ear insane.

I was telling my cousin and he said he had the stock Gibson tuners on his paul and he got some grovers and he never had a problem again. Is this the case with the Gibson tuners?

Thanks & Godbless, my friends.

well you can try lubing the nut cuts and contact points, as well as a better stringing technique first.

Hmm yeah, I suppose my stringing technique sucks, but what do you lube the nut with?

Maybe check out a new nut for it, Gibsons some times end up with bad nuts, I'm not to sure if i'll switch mine out, the guitar stays in tune pretty well

for the nut cuts you shave some pencil tip into a power and insert into the cuts using a toothpick.

at saddle contact points you can use light machine oil.

and make sure you arent wrapping the string more than 2-3 times around the tuner with stringing up.
use a cross over move to lock the string in place.

Graphite or guitar grease, Which can be bought. And yes, You should learn of more ways to put strings on the tuner post. Also, When I string up I string up kind of like B. B. King does - I put a lot of winds on the post. I never overlap the string with itself though so I have a limit of string, Depending on the gauge it varies.
Always tin your strings.
