It's a well known fact that the G-string does not stay in tune. No matter what. I don't care what experts say, but the G-string does not stay in tune. It is as if they were plucked from the Pubic Area of Satan and wound with the guts of fetuses (fetii?). So I just thought I'd let people know this. Vote if you think this is true.

My strat, fat strat and LTD MH-50 (locking trem) stay in tune. But my Epi LP's G goes out like a bastard and I'm yet to play a Gibson/Epi SG that holds tune well

Never had that problem on any of mine, no matter how cheap and nasty they were.

What brand and type of strings are you using?
#10
mine does, but i find that the b-string goes out of tune more on my guitar

my gibson Lp doesn't hold tuning very well, and its intonation is always off... might be the place that sets it up tho..

I'd find a new set up tech, then. Should inntonate within a few cxxx hairs of the note your playing and for the most part stay in tune. Unless your strings are old or not stretched properly or tuners are shot.

How much do guitar check ups usually cost anyways?

My g string is always going out of tune. While all the other strings are always in tune.

Cheap guitars will, I know on a lot of cheap/badly made squiers (modern Korean/Indonesian/Taiwanese whatever) ones they always go out of tune. If you have a decent guitar, set it up properly and clean everything, lubricate the nut (with some graphite), try it without string trees etc.

my X50 stays in tune quite well, and you need help.

You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!

Ok this thread just started off poorly.

It's not a problem with the G string being in tune (aka - your guitar will play a G when you play it open) - it's a problem with fretting the G string.

If you do not have a wound G string, the G string will "play" sharper as you fret it.

Either get A) a wound G string B) an Earvana Compensated Nut (I have one on my Schecter S-1 Blackjack and it works perfectly or C) Buzz Feiten Tuning System (costs more than the earvana to be installed, but it comes standard on more guitars).

Mine cost about $30 USD. That was with new strings. Remember, though, different shops have different prices.

If I ever have a problem on any of my guitars, it's always with the G string.
#26
mine varies everytime I change strings it seems..sometimes g, or b, or high e, or low e..

I don't really get the point of the poll so I just voted yes.

Anyway the only way to keep your g-string in tune is by using heavier gauge strings. I use Ernie Ball 11s at the moment, but I will get some 12s next week for better tone and better tuning stability.

If you are playing "small" scale guitars like Gibson you need AT LEAST 10s on your guitar, but the larger the better, on your guitar.

I hope it helped.

Lies. You can't fix the G-String, I don't care what you say. I use 11's and it doesn't do squat on my strat. The top three strings go out of tune at the same rate while the bottom three also go out of tune at the same rate. What I mean to say is that the bottom three stay in tune with each other while the top three are also in tune with each other but the whole guitar isn't in tune with itself. Understand?

But that's besides the point. The point is that the G-strings is pure evil. EVILLLL!!!
