The problem that im having is that when every i do a big pull up the all the strings but the G go a quarter step sharp and the g goes a half step flat but if i dive all the strings go wildly out of tune some will be just barely out of tune then the next string will be a whole step sharp not kidding but the bridge angle stays the same.
I replaced the strings yesterday but i streched them out just fine. i've had the guitar for 2 months and its a jackson lincesed floyd. help!

Sounds like the strings could be slipping at the nut. It is a double locking trem right?

Also, your strings are still streching. Unlock the nut, retune, and lock the nut a little tighter than you had it. They don't need to be crazy tight, you REALLY don't want to strip them.

Check to see if your trem is set up right, and if not, try and adjust it so it is. Use the setup guide at the top for that.

I checked the nut and under most of the strings theres a groove but it looks more like the strings just took off some of the color and there isnt much damage but ill just double check everything and wait 3 more days and check back in

Has it been doing this since you bought the guitar? The neck bolts might be loose on the back, I've "worked" on countless Ibanez's that had loose neck bolts causing the tremolo to go outta tune because the neck would wiggle around.

I've never seen a Jackson with that problem before though, your problem is most likely the strings not being properly stretched like mentioned above. A really easy way to stretch your strings is just to overtune them about a step and let it chill for a little while. Then come back, downtune past the note and then tune back up towards the correct pitch. Whenever you're tuning a Floyd always try to approach the note coming up in pitch, try not to downtune towards it.

Tighten the 2 screws holding the top lock assembly, sometimes it´s the little things that cause the problems.

i think i should mention that i use the whammy quite heavily and its a jackson licensed and it didnt started till i changed my strings which makes me think its stretching

this might sound a little stupid but maybe put in locking tuners to help the tuning stability a little bit more, i mean my freind has a gibson explorer w/kahler and no locking nut, and i almost got a guitar with OFR but no nut, and that should help a bit, mind that it will still get out of tune


Btw Gundamnitpete can u say "for ur health" after every time u give advice, i just see steve brule and i think that now
Eh.

ok retuned it put the locking nut back on now when i pull up it stays in tune but when i do a deep dive bomb the bridge appears to get stuck flat like it will start flat then after the divebomb the bridge will be tilted forward and the only way to fix it is to do a pull up all the way

Easy friend, I'm just trying to help.

Maybe check to see if the neck is shifting while your pulling or diving?

Sounds like the springs are hanging in the trem cavity, you could lower the trem just a little and it might help.
