i just got my new mim hss strat today in the mail. everything works fine except that after i got playing it, it went outta tune a little. it tuned itself down. i don't know buyt maybe its the factory strings? or maybe its because the strings are only wrapped around the tuning pegs twice. could either of these be the reason why its coming untuned?

Metal stretches and moves. It just happens. Unless it is going WAY out of tune, it isn't a big deal.

New strings also tend to go out of tune a lot, too. See what happens after a few days of playing.

the strings are probly new. new strings tend to do that, just work em in a lil and it should stop

stretch your strings dude. Tune them a half step up from normal and play for a little bit and then tune them back down to regular. Always works for me. But yeah this is very very common don't worry about it.

take your right hand and stretch the strings while there in tune then they will be outta tune and you tune up and repeat like four times each string it will stop.
