nope it's a 77 gibson les paul original! in near mint condition too. i think the tuning keys may need to be tightened but i'm not sure??

tighten the screws and nuts on your tuners and make sure you string correctly with no overlaps around the posts.
#6
maybe its somethin with your strings...also guitars dont stay in tune forever u may just have to retune it
Ibanez GSR190 Bass
Ibanez IBZ10B amp

Ibanez GAX30
Boss DS-1 Distortion

if you just changed the string also, you might need to stretch them out first so they can stay in tune for lead.
Otherwise, check the tuners themself, and see if the string is tightly wound in the posts.

If none of that stuff works you could switch to locking tuners. Keep your original ones if you do, just in case you decide to sell it.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.

deffinately keep the original parts... especially that your guitars a vintage les paul, the value will be more with the original parts.
