i just bought an ec-1000 from some dude off craigslist and it wont stay in tune at all..
he had 12 gauge strings on it cause he played in drop b, we play in drop c.
so i put 11's on it a couple days ago, i've stretched them a bunch and everything, i dont know why it wont stay in tune.. its really pissing me off. my bands going on tour in less than 3 weeks and i cant bring this with me.. :[

needs moving to EG

check the intonation(most likely), if it has a floyd rose, check it`s parrallel with the body.......if your going on tour with it, best taking it in for a setup.......obviously you can`t do it yourself.

did you make sure there was nothing wrong with the locking tuners? I have my EC-1000 in standard and it stays in tune easy for atleast 1 gig solid.

i reckon its something to do with the locking tuners, as mine (which is in Drop c with 12/11's) stays in tune fine. except the G which goes out when it bends.

The neck is probably bowed if you changed string gauge and tuning. You probably need to adjust your truss rod and your intonation.
