Hellu.

So, I gots me a Jackson Dinky with a licensed Floyd Rose. With even the slightest bump of the Floyd, the G string detunes, usually flat. Even if I change strings (even different sizes), it detunes.

What is going on?

Dumb question, but is the locking nut clamped down? (trying to eliminate the dumb things first)...

Haha. Yes, it is ;P

Ummm...if the strings are relatively new, you should give them a good stretch when you put them on. That might be it. Otherwise, check and make sure that the groove underneath the nut where the string lays isn't too deep (or else the string will shift back and forth).

I've had them on for about 3 weeks... Maybe more...

G strings are gonna G string.

Is it locked down well in the bridge? You may need to adjust the saddle for it.
Spin 'round carousel when your horse isn't screwed in.

"Adjust" is a pretty broad term. Move it closer to the head stock? Away? What?

With the nut locked, pluck the string and press on it behind the nut. If it changes pitch than the nut is slipping and that's your problem.

Loose string bridge knife.
It happens when the string's bridge knife threads start getting chewed up.

All along this path I tread
My heart betrays my weary head
With nothing but my soul to save
From the cradle to the grave.

Being rather new, what's the bridge knife, and is it easily fixable?

I think he's talking about the knife edges. They're the "blade-like" part of the bridge that is where the bridge contacts the trem-posts. These are the knife-edges. Over time and with heavy use they can dull, which would cause all the strings to have trouble staying in tune, but since it's just your G string, it's probably not that.

Did you try the little test I said to see if your nut is slipping?

Could I be tuning too high? (Just throwing out ideas. Using .11 gauge with E standard. Wouldn't mind tuning low :P)

It could just be that the G-string is a dud, switch it out for a new one and see if it continues.
Tuning higher or lower wouldn't really change anything.

Just to make sure, only the G string is going out of tune right? Even if the others are going out, the G will be farther out of tune, so make sure it's not all the strings going out of tune, because that would be a different problem entirely.

The others are all fine. I think. They all stay tuned to eachother, so... unless the g is fine and everything else is slipping at the same intervals XD. But I've changed strings and still get the same problem.
