I got a Jackson KingVX10 Flying V guitar recently and decided to restring it as, not only where the strings a different gauge to my usual preferece, the strings had been played alot by customers trying the guitar out and putting it back on the shelf.
So anyway i restrung it and now everytime i tune it each string tunes down two steps everytime i play a string above it, even when i lock it.
Has anyone else ever had this issue? How did u solve it?
cheers

are you twisting the lock up with your fingers or an allen wrench?

Are you familiar with floyds? 98% of people don't know what their doing and when they restring they don't adjust the claw to parallel the bridge.

RIght.. You cannot switch tunings or gauges w/out adjusting the camber of the bridge. Once your have the correct bridge level (adjust the claw screws in the trem cavity) and the tuning you want, tighten the nuts. Often the strings will go sharp. Then use the fine tuners to adjust.

That's the trem cavity, what you want to do is tighten the screws at the top(or loosen, which ever way you need to trem to go depending on gauge, tuning, etc.) So your bridge is parallel to the body of your guitar when in tune.

Remember this. ALWAYS!

Spring tension should always be equal to string tension.

Spring tension = String tension
