bought a 2003 samick with grover tuners. it wont stay in tune though. do tuners loose their grip after a while? is there a way to tighten them or something?

strings look really new though ! i thought new strings would hold tune less well.

will try tightening the screws
#5
Careful with the screws on the end of the tuning keys.

If you tighten those too much, you can damage the mechanism inside.

well i just took it apart and its definitely not slipping

could it be the actual string slipping from the beg? doesnt look like they gave them any wrap around, one if lucky at all.

yeah try doing a better wraparound, and if the strings are new they may not have been stretched properly, and if the guitar has a trem check that and make sure it is floating in the proper position and isnt bending down when you tighten the strings, that will massively screw up your tuning.

well i have changed strings, checked tuners, checked bridge and it still seems to go out of tune straight away. annoying.

x2. if the strings are new then tune them thru the day until they are stretched. or pull up on them at the middle of the board a few times until they are stretched and can hold a tune.

yeah jenny already done that.

should have just gone the squier for the extra money, but these things are loaded on paper. i love the scale and the neck size, but it sounds crap and wont hold tune.
#12
are they locking grovers?

if not u have to make sure uve got at least 3 winds around the tuners.
dont give up yet.

how do i know if they locking, i cant move them if i put a small screw driver through the eye, can only move them by turning the knob.
#14
well theyre should be two knobs. one to twist the tuner and one behind the tuner that locks the string inside the tuner hole

well the strings i havnt replaced have about 1.



that's not really going to help.
u need to make sure there are a few winds per post.

aslo is this a strat? if so, is the bridge level?

yeah bridge is sweet. certainly a lot easier restringing than my RG hahaha. but rg sounds sssssssso much better. but i like the neck and scale better on this cheapy. i just hope i can get it setup so my GF doesnt have to worry about it.

ok so if the bridge is level, and the strings are broken in and its still falling out of tune.
it's got to be how its strung.

if it was just one string falling out, then it could be a bad tuner.
all the strings, either means the bridge is loose, or the strings arent tight on the tuners.
