ok so i got a cheap little squier double fat strat with a red satin finish and 2 duncan designed humbuckers for only $50, and it looks beautiful. the only problem is that it didnt come with strings, so i had to string it myself, and since it's a floating trem, it is impossible. ive always had a guitar with a stop tail piece so i tried tuning it like i would with those, and that didn't work. then i tried adjusting the fine tuning parts (height of each string, etc), and it never seems to stay in tune. help anyone?

hence it being only $50.

Well, it would help to tighten down the bridge with the claw under the back plate. Some heavier springs maybe... put graphite in the nut. Tons of things.

no, its not a locking trem, just a floating one. its pretty crappy, but once i gather enough money and info about locking trems, im gonna upgrade it.

btw i bought it from a friend, who most likely messed around with it. but for 50 bucks, it's worth the hassle
