Hello, i'm re stringing my guitar right now, and my high e string, whenever i tune it all the way up to E, it comes off at about C or D, i can't get it all the way up. I don't know whats going on, because the string doesn't break or anything, it simply seems to come off... Anyone know whatsup? i think it just needs to be stretched, so i have it sitting at B right now, and am slowly tightening it. Do you think i might have stripped the gears inside of the tuning key somehow?

What kind of strings do you have, and how much did you wrap around the tuning thinger?

If they are super slinks, and just about all ernie ball strings will take a while break in. I've had my heavy tops for a couple weeks and they still wont stay in A# for more than 10 minutes playing time. Just play them in.
