Ok I have an Epiphone Les Paul Custom Plus that has had a fairly bad tuning problem lately. The G-string keeps falling out of tune almost instantly after tuning it up. It's not even a small amount that it drops out, it's close to a quarter step.

Is this a string problem, a tuner problem, a bridge problem, or something else?

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

its probably a mixture of a tuner problem and a nut problem.

Bring it to the shop where you've bought it and ask them! If it's only a year old, it should still be under the .. garantee.. or whatever it's called in english! :P

pearl jam kicks ass...

anyways, it could be a number of things. if you don't have experience in guitar repair and stuff you should just bring it into a shop.

If it isn't a stretch problem, maybe the screw in your G string tuner is a little loose. Get a screwdriver and see if you can just tighten the screw on your g string tuner a little bit. Try that if your strings have been amply stretched.

nope

I had the same exact problem and string. I just rubbed pencil lead in the nut and it has been fine ever since.

99% of tuning problems come from the guitar simply not being re-strung correctly. Even the cheapest guitars in the world will hold tune most of the time providing that they are strung right.

Re-string the guitar, making sure to properly wear out the strings first. Then, do play them a bit. No strings, no matter how stretched before hand, will hold tune perfectly the instant you put them on the guitar. I find I need to play for about an hour solid before the strings - even ones that were stretched first anyway - truly hold tune.

If that fails, have your guitar properly set-up at a store. This should almost certainly solve and problems you have. I will honestly be amazed if any guitar over the £60/$100 price range still goes out of tune after a proper set-up and re-stringing.

If you haven't changed the strings in the past few months, do so.
