my guitar untunes itself rite away after i tune it, i htink its warped, how do i fix that problem? do i tighten or loosen the truss rod?
#5
you cant fix a warped neck. and by the way, you do know that the strings have to stretch before they stay in tune.
#6
don't f u ck with your truss rod if you don't know what you're doing, it could ruin it for good
#7
Are you sure your strings are just not correctly stretched ?

-Ibanez FGM 400BB w/ 10-46 gauge

it says its crafted in china :/


ouch. what brand and model?
and if you screw with the truss rod, it'll change the action... i'd reccomend not doing it if you don't know what that means

tuners usually aren't the problem - it's usually the nut. Tuners tune - if that works then I'll betcha it's the nut - easy to change!
Now running an Eleven Rack with Pro Tools 10.3.3 - it's amazing and I'm having ball with it - worth every penny. PT 10 is tops IMO and the Eleven Rack is a work of art!
