I got my Epi G400 a month ago and it's a great guitar.
Yesterday I wanted to replace the strings with Elixers, so when I did, the whole guitar became an uncontrollable tuning zoo.
Just one note makes the whole things out of tune.
So I decided to get some new tuners.

Any recommendations?
Thanks a ton.

I bet you have a FR bridge, always do the bigger string first, as if that changes the rest do in most cases, try doing that, and if not, you probally put strings in a way that they slip out of tune easily, I think those are more of the cause then your tunners personally

nah, it's an epi g400, which is a hardtail.

i changed my tuners to the same green key style, except in all chrome. what style are you looking for? locking?

Is this the first time you have strung your guitar?

Guitar strings stetch a lot when they are first used... I always put them on and tune them a little sharp and let it sit for a while so they have a good chance to stretch out, and then I tune it again

1) Yeah, I took all of the strings off
from fattest to skinniest
Then I started to putem on from fattest to skinniest.

And I did hookem on the best I could (they're elixir strings, don't like to waste them).

2) Anything, tuning keys, machines, whatever.

3) and no, I've been playing for 2 years And I have enough experience for putting on strings.
Yet I didn't know that, rofl.
I'll give it a couple of days to sit, but I'm not too sure..
When I took the strings off, already, the tuners were really loose.
Plus, I read reviews and heard feedback from friends that this guitar isn't great for tuning..

tighten the nuts and bolts that hold them down to the guitar, they're really simple to figure out.

a simple thing a lot of people forget. when tuning always end by tightening the string. so if your tuning and you go to high, dont just go down to tune, go below and back up again. prevents slipping a LOT

Uhhh if you're talking about tightening the string in the little loop on the tuners,
I made 100% sure that they're hooked on well enough

no. i mean when tuning the string always make sure you end with tightening to string to get it in tune

i know what you mean man. if your tuning an E, drop it to Eb first then tune back up to E. this way it keeps constant tension on the strings which eliminates slippage which could throw you outta tune.
