I like to play a lot of bends when I solo. Naturally, this means my strings go out of tune rather quickly. Is there naything, short of new tuners, that I can do to slow this down?

I guess having a locking tremolo (floydrose, etc.) would help un-tuning slower but I'm not even sure about it... and it probably wouldn't be a major change :S

One thing weird is that I like to bend often too and I don't go out of tuning... if you're playing on new strings it's probably just cause they're not stretched yet... else, I don't really know :S

a nice set of locking tuners


nut sauce (lmao) is supposed to work pretty well though

Do you play a guitar with a vibrato unit? because blocking it willimprove sustain and tuning stability.

The parts that affect this are your bridge and tuners. I'd definately reccomend locking tuners.
Quest for "the tone": pending.

Also make sure you've properly stretched your strings - apologies if you already know to do that, but a lot of players don't.

You can try rubbing art pencils in the nut slots.

Also try tightening your tuning pegs.
