I think so, Brain, but where would we buy rubber pants at this hour?

Yes, but the squier ones are probably crap, so I'd get them anyways, as well as new pups.

the dude is trying to get his guitar to stay in tune, not sound better. pickups to him, as far as i can tell, dont matter. block off your trem completely. dont use it. that should help

So you're telling him to leave his guitar sounding like crap?

no, but he wants it to stay in tune. changing the sound is a project for another day, with alot more money.

Not if you know where to look

Your best (and cheapest) bet is to add more springs. More springs = More Pull = Tuning Stability. I'm a constant whammy user with .011's on my strat, and so far no tuning problems; and I use Klusons (notorious-for-getting-out-of-tune-tuners!)

Oh Squier tuners aren't that bad. He just needs more springs.

Well, cheap tuners are inconsistent. I had an cheap epiphone, 4 of the tuners were alright. One of the tuners were too tight, and the last one was too loose (and always went out of tune).

I never doubted the springs, but new tuners wouldn't do much harm, if you catch my drift.

just shove a wood block into the trem. it'll save some tuning stability without breaking you. eventually get some better, locking tuners too. but just block the trem, it'll help alot.
