It's the first time i've ever had a guitar with a whammy bar.
Ive screwed it in but it keeps going out of tune.
And I dont get how these fine tuners work.
Can someone help me?!!

What your probably experiencing is poorly stretched out strings, New strings take a while to stretch out and trems will also complicate the matter. Firstly forget the tuning for a second and just bend the heck out of the strings, tug at them if you will or give it some trem abuse. just retune and strech untill the strings balance out and stop going out of tune. then lock off the strings and use the fine tuners to, well its obvious eh?

If the guitar is brand new the trem springs will also need to strech out a bit as the start out a bit stiff and melow out a bit with use. but you have a zr so not to worry so much about that.

Make sure the nut is tightly locked. Use the allen key thing to tighten it up, otherwise, itf it's a tiny bit loose, it will go out of tune. Remember, REALLY tight.

not too tight, or it will cause a crack on the back of the neck where the screw for the lock nut is, which is very common with ibanez necks
