Hi, i have a 2nd Greco V flying. I can't get the guitar in tune after stress the string ( i stress the strings everytime i tuning ). When i bend a string, some of other strings are out of tuning except the string i bended. I also replaced the stock tuning pegs with AllPart but the problem is still... Anyone know how to fix this?

Sr about my bad english

Tuners are very rarely the cause of poor tuning stability, so putting new tuners on it was probably a waste of money. It's a very common misconception that tuners are the issue, and it's caused by marketing.

The vast majority of the time the problem is caused by the nut catching the string, so I'd suggest widening the nut slots out a little and lubricating the slots by writing a pencil into them. That should make a big difference.

Either that or you're not string the guitar properly.

Is this a hard-tail flying V or does it have a tremolo? Are your strings new and how are you wrapping the strings around your tuning posts? Are you sure you aren't bending out of key and making the rest of the strings sound out of tune?

I bought a bone nut from a custom store to replace, also try the pencil trick but the problem is still. I'm sure i string the guitar exactly like the sticky post.

If you bought a new bridge did you get the saddles slotted? Does the guitar fall out of tune when you arent bending?


Nice looking Greco.

Cool Flying V dude.

It could be because the strings aren't stretched in enough.

Nice looking Greco.


The saddles is pre slotted. Few strings are out of tune after i stress a single string ( they're almost flat ). Then i stress the secound string and the first string is flat again, some of the rest is more flat, some still in tune.

I wonder if anything wrong with the neck or trussrod...

I will try to stretch the string again, thank you.


This guitar is cheap and nice looking but it's a real pain in the ass for weird out of tune ...

They aren't though. Pre-slotted bridges have few guide lines but they are nowhere near deep enough to use. Your bridge saddles need to be cut.


Other strings fall out of tune when you're stretching your strings initially. Keep tuning until that doesn't happen anymore.
