I just got my flying V back from a custom shop and I had the guy put locking tuners on it and a floyd rose. So I tried out the floyd and it turns out that everytime I divebomb the guitar goes out of tune. I thought locking tuners r supposed to prevent that. Should I be doing something with the tuners that I'm not doing? please help.

well, it may have been sticking at the nut.

You could always replace your nut with a nut made of SlipStone (or something like that, I saw it on Stew Mac). The nut is naturally slippery, so the strings will never stick.

Or just put a FR nut on. That might be easier.

u need a locking nut to prevent the guitar from going out of tune with divebombs, locking tuners are great but kinda limited, they're more set up for vintage trems not for huge mofockin divebombs. i can't imagine it'd cost too much to get put in. on the other hand i'm confused as to why the custom shop didn't tell you that? maybe i'm wrong ... because they definately should have told you!

Well its not the nut that fell off, its the locking nut. Kinda hard to explain but u no how most guitars have locking nuts that go through the back of the neck, well this guitar has a regular nut in the front of the headstock then right behind it is the locking thing. I'll post pics if you don't understand. But if you do understand please tell me where I can purchase a new one, because mine is broken.
