odd question this, but maybe true,

i left my Epi LP custom in my car for about 3 hours the other day, and well, it was baking hot outside and even worse in the car, when i was playing it after, it wouldnt stay in tune but after a while its tuning integrity was a little better, could this of happened because of the wood of the guitar expanding? or cause Epi's Groover tuners arnt the ol'breast in the world?

thanks!

Grovers are excellent tuners. It might be because of wood-changes. Take it to the electric guitar forum though, better answers

Edit: HAHAHA, im so ****ing far out

I thought i was in the pit

it might have even been your strings. heat causes metal to expand, so maybe they had expanded slightly and gone out of tune

That could definitely be what happened. Weather is a huge factor in the way your gu itar plays. Extreme heat, dampness, or cold can all do different things to your guitar. I think extreme heat can cause the neck to expand and/or shift, which is probably what happened to you. It wouldnt stay in tune because it takes a while for the guitar to adjust to room temperature conditions after being in such hot weather. I wouldnt leave yuor guitar around liek that again, too much heat and/or dampness can warp the neck.

Give 10 UGers a rope and ask them to pull. 4 will push, 1 will ask for buttsecks, 2 will tell you get an Ibanez and the last 3 will start complaining about Line6 Spiders.
