I got the same guitar for Christmas. I noticed that too, but once I put on new, thicker, strings it stayed in tune a lot longer. I'm using 11's now, I believe they come with 9's.

new tuners, new nut, better strings, graphite in nut slot
Send me off to bed forevermore.

also...when you re-string it, wind the string over the little bit that is sticking out the first time it goes around, and then the rest wind the string under the little but thats sticking out

most of the time, new hardware isn't necessary, changing the way you string the guitar will be much more beneficial and less expensive
I had this problem with my epi LP, and now that i've fixed the way i string my guitar, it hardly ever goes out of tune

How long have those strings been on there for?

My SG is like that. It's the newness of the wood in my case. It's highly susceptable to changes in temp and humidity. One day mine might be flat everywhere, the next it might be sharp. The more stable you can keep the environment that the guitar is usually in, the more stable the tuning will be. A good set of strings on it helps tremendously, as does wrapping them correctly at the tuner posts. Try a set of Gibson Brite Wires, .010 gauge. They won't let you down.
