i know there has been a million threads on this issue, but i wanted to ask it specifically for myself. my guitar, an ibanez rg440pl with a LFR, the original ibanez edge, which is known for being a very good bridge, keeps on falling out of tune. my g string keeps on going flat, and because i have the locking nut i can't tune it back, as it is outside of the range of the fine tuner by this point (because it has happened three times today, each time only about a half step down so now my fine tuner won't go any further.) so i'm wondering if anyone has any ideas on what i should do. i am probably going to bring it in to get set up, as i haven't done so since i bought it, so will that fix the problem?

Unlock the locking nut and tune it...

You seem confused about floyd rose's so go read the sticky.

No you seem to be confused. Every guitar, no matter how great the hardware is, will go out of tune from time to time.

I had this EXACT SAME problem - still havent solved it...

I havent tried this yet but that one G string may be slipping through the locking nut. to test this lock it down the tune the G string up - but BE CAREFUL NOT TO BREAK UR STRING (like i did) if it changes tune it probably is slipping in the locks.

Im not sure how to solve this (my string were old and I just changed them so that may be it) but havent tried to use to whammy after changing strings.


Please PM me if you figure this out PLZ!!
