So im restringing my ibanez rg320 with an edge pro trem. I started restringin the high E, and now i am on the b string. I stretched the High e string along the fretboard as the guy from guitarcenter told me to do. I wanna really stretch them out good, so i dont run into the problem of the string going out of tune everytime i divebomb. Is there anything i can do to help prevent this?? Like play for a while before locking down, or??? Thank you!

Stretch them and tune them. Let them settle for about an hour and tune it again.

Your should be fine, unless your retarted.

I find it amusing that some believe 'talent' is a quantifiable measurement. Its the arts people, not mathematics. Open your minds.

put the strings in. losely tune the strings. it dosent have to be perfect. dont lock it down yet. pull on the strings around the 12th fret. tune it. repeat on the 7th and 5th frets. let is sit for a bit. tune it right, then lock it down.

What I do to stretch my strings out regardless of the guitar-

Wind em up, place them, tune them once all the way. Take each string individually between your fingers, pull or tug on it pretty wildly, stretch it out quite a bit, it'll most definitely go out of tune. Do that for all six strings then retune, repeat the process once more, then tune it up, lock it up, etc. You shouldn't go out of tune that way...

And if you do afterwards its cause you have a crappy trem, can't do much about that.
