well...ive got a Dean ZX...its a very nice guitar, but it comes out of tune easily [im pretty mean to the higher strings :P] anyway...would it be possible to stick locks on it as if it had a floyd rose? would that keep it in tune? and if so, how would i go about doing it? thanks alot

The zx doesn't have a trem does it?

Replacing the nut is hard to do and locking tuners are expensive.

If it doesn't have a trem then you shouldn't need anything to lock. Schaller M6 tuners are about $40 a set and they work very well.

hmm..but dont locking tuners just hold the string for easier string replacement?

replacing the nut is hard? Only if you get aome special metal one. Any other type and you just take out the old one, get one that fits, and glue it back in.

Locking tuners also have a stronger hold on the string, which reduces the string from slipping, which is what generally takes the guitar out of tune.

I even tried dressing up as a fly myself, and throwing myself out of the window in the hope that they will follow me. But to no avail.

It sounded to me like he was thinking of getting a locking nut. Those would be the "special metal one" that you were refurring to. and yeah... they are hard to fit.

hold on a sec, wouldn't getting a floyd rose nut without fine tuners at the bridge cause the strings to go out of tune. After all the nut is pushing the strings down.
