Heey!

I have an Ibanez SA320X and is has some tuning issues.

I.E. It holds its tune for about 2 mins of hard playing before a few strings fall dramatically out of tune.

Is there anything i can do to prevent this at all??

Any suggestions?

Cheers.

assuming that your strings were threaded through the bridge the right way im going to say that either you didnt wind the strings enough times around or your tuners are bust

Has it always done this? Did the problem start right after a string change? Heavier strings?


Could be the tremolo. Block it and see if you still have the problem. You may have to tighten up the springs or add another spring to keep it solid or get it set up from your string size.

The trems on the SA are not great. If you use it alot you will need to replace the plastic nut. I would block the trem, or lower it to the body, like stated above. The stock tuners are not great. When I had my SA, I swapped to locking tuners, dropped the trem to the body, and replaced the nut. It would hold tune very well.
