Are you sure you put the string on correctly? Because i reckon that your problem lies there


Most likely this, the epi les paul special has surprisingly good tuning stability for a budget guitar

It might be gunk building up in the nut, give it a clean and put alittle graphite in the slots where the strings go so they aren't catching.

make sure the string is wrapped around the post 3 times.

if the string is brand new, give it a little time to stretch out. if it is old, replace it (and the others while your at it)

do the cleaning and graphite for the nut as outline above.

that should pretty well cover the really simple sources of tuning issues

I second string stretch or your nut needs graphite.
I'm the only player to be sponsered by 7 guitar companies not to use their products.

Do a proper string stretch. Very few guitarists do it, but it's extremely important or guitars go easily out of tune.

you most likely put the string on wrong. I always wrap mine around 3 times around the tuning peg and then I stretch the strings out after they're on so they stay in tune better.

Try stretching the string after tuning, then retune if necessary and repeat until it doesn't go off tune.

I do that with all my instruments
