So, I had some Sperzels put on...maybe 3 weeks ago? Something like that. Anyway, I've noticed they can't actually hold a tune very well for locking tuners. Is it just cause they're new? I'll play for a while, then the low E or G or A goes out and is sharp or flat or something, and I can never get that perfect reading right in the middle. It's always JUST a little sharp or flat. Am I doing something wrong? Is there something I need to change on them?


Sorry for the mini wall of text, and thanks in advance as always

You might want to consider lubricating your nut.

TS, use some kind of graphite lube on the nut, OK?

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.

It's not a trem, but I'll try it anyway. Any particular...brand? of graphite lube? Or place to get it?

It'll work with a normal nut too, and will do so probably better.

Sweet, thanks man. Are there even brands for graphite lube? Could I just get some at my local music shop or musiciansfriend or something?
