I have a Xiphos that is maybe 2 months old. I broke a string and replaced them all with 10 gauge strings. Now I cant get that thing to tune for nothing I get the low E string tuned, then go to the A. When I get the A in tune it has pulled the bridge up so now the E is a D. WTF? I am obviously doing something wrong. Could someone tell me what I am doing wrong. I am a rookie when it comes to guitars.

you could try tuning the high E string then the low one, tuning the middle two strings last.

does your bridge need adjusting?

tune in this order

E

A then E

D then A then E

G then D then A then E

B then G then D then A then E

e then B then G then D then A then E

after that they should all be in tune, then lock the strings in place and adjust with the fine tuners

Tightening the bridge springs?

If you have properly stretched your strings then you probably need the trem adjusted. The Ibanez site may have a manual you can download, unless you have the manual (which you should if you bought it new.) If you don't feel comfortable I would suggest a complete setup from a qualified tech. Well worth the money.

Is you bridge level, if not then that your problem. If it isnt you will have to adjust the spring tension untill its level, then tune it, make sure its level if not adjust it, then tune it again, the keep reapeating untill it stays in tune. It may take 30 min to 1hour

Yes, you have almost no chance of tuning unless you tighten them. What type of bridge do you have Vintage tremolo or floyd rose? (it's unlikely I'll reply again, but others might wanna know)

It's normal. Replace the strings one by one, stretch them properly, re-adjust the tremolo tension as you re-tune over and over again, changing gauges and tuning up again can take hours. I assume you know how tuning works with a floating bridge? Tune one string up, the others go down a little.

Dude the thread title says it's and edge 3...

Pop open the back of your guitar and adjust the claw the springs are attached to until the trem is perfectly level when in tune. Someone post the diagram please I don't have one.

Switched back to the 9 gauge strings and tuned. Turned out great. No more 10's for me.
