Hello all,

This is upsetting me because I just bought this guitar but it is going out of tune when I bend, I think it is the screws that are in where I circled in red in the picture I attached, I tried tightening one of them, but that didn't work. Where should these screws be and how tightened?

it could just be that the strings havent been played on much and need time to settle in. do a few bends on all the strings, and pull them out from the body of the guitar gently just to stretch them a bit and maybe that will help them settle in a bit. i find that when i get new strings it doesnt stay in tune properly until the strings have been worn in a little bit

so the screws on the bridge have nothing to do with the string going out of tune when I bend?

does it have new strings?
cause yea thats what all guitars do when they are new lol
just give it a week or so it should be fine dotn worry about tighning screws you'll just end up stripping them

Yeah, just do what everyone else said. Those screws on the bridge are either for adjusting the action (string height) of your guitar, or for intonation (I can't tell which screws you're referring to)

New string need to be stretched out. Take the string around the 12th fret give it a couple of tugs retune then keep repeating untill it stops going out of tune

I do it differently, I keep bending as high as possible without breaking the strings, then retune.

if theyre old strings they'll go out of tune, if you didnt wind it around the tuning post enough(I do it 3 times) it'll go out of tune and if the strings are new bend each stirng then re tune them and repeat that process about 3 times and other than that I dont see what could be making it go out of tune.

Exactly what kind of guitar is it? I can see its obviously some kind of Strat.

And dont mess with the sh1t on the bridge if you dont know what the hell youre doing man...its just going to eff up your guitar.

Make sure your strings are new and wound tightly around the tuners.

Don't "TUG" your strings, just a couple of bends could do it. In fact, play as you normally would, only tune every five minutes or so for a while.

And uh, you stretched them away from the neck untill you heard a click? that might have been something breaking.

a click as in the strings tightening.

it's good now I just pulled the strings away from the neck a little bit and retuned and now it is fine..

what i do when i get a new guitar or new strings is, i tune them up like a step and a half and wait a while(minute or two) and then tune back to the prefered tuning...
