Hello UG!

I have an ESP Horizon NTB/STB. Everytime I bend the G string it goes out of tune. Tried several string sets with differensiert string gauges. What could cause this?

Unforunately that's how this bloody string works.
Try to stretch the strings before you string your guitar
and everytime you play start by bending your strings
until your guitar lose its tuning. Then tune it
again and re-do-it until it doesn't lose its tuning.
This is how I was dealing with the tuning standability in my previous
guitar, a fender squier . You can also modify your guitar
and update it with a floyd rose .If you are not in to dives etc. you can have it blocked
this way you will NEVER AGAIN have to worry about tuning.

Last but not least, if you can't afford an original floyd get a special one .It works great with
my dean. I tune my guitar once a month

Usually an issue with the nut cut, slut.

It's sticking in the nut.

If you would actually try getting a bridge that doesnt go out of tune, Evertune would be a better choice. Getting an FR just to block it isnt the best idea. Those are expensive and require lots of work to be installed onto your guitar.

You could try rubbing some graphite from a pencil into your nut. If the problem is there, it could help.

I understand your point of you but I really don't know if it would SERIOUSLY keep in tune.
Does it have finetune ? If yes it's ok.If not the pressure of the locking nut will detune your guitar and can'tbe adjustable as your nut is locked 😉
You should also consider locking tuners.
Edit: locking tuners not nut without finetune...

This is the hardtail right? If so I agree with Dspellman, probably sticking in the nut. Use some graphite and lube it up.

If this is a floating trem and only one string is going out of tune then that's another story.

Have you tried another set of strings?
