so it now takes me 20 minutes to tune my guitar. (actually 19 mins and 48 seconds last time. yes I timed myself.) the problem is that when I tune one string, another one goes out of tune. so like I'll get to the high e string, tune to pitch, and then realize the low e has dropped a step, the g has dropped half a step and the b is now a c. what's going on here?!?! and my tuner is accurate because I use it on my other guitars and they don't have this problem

Tremolo. Once you tune a string, do about four heavy bends on it, and re-tune it. Repeat this till it stays in tune. The tremolo makes it go out of tune a bit over time, this is why you find it keeps being out of tune.
Gear:
Schecter Hellraiser Deluxe
Boss DS-1
Crate GTD65

GAS List:
Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier Roadster

Probably has to do with the bridge. Try tuning it starting with the outside strings going in, like E-e-B-A-D-G. It should equalize the tension on the bridge, which i think is whats throwing it out of tune.
#4
alright, I just did what qotsa suggested and it worked. but any suggestions on how to completely fix it?
#5
if you dont use the tremelo block it wiht a small peice of wood in the back

but I do use the tremolo so I'm not feeling the wood block. although me using the tremolo is now what's making it go out of tune. it's f'ed up before then
#7
i feel your pain its the same 4 me sumtimes ha what type of bridge do you have cos if its a floyd rose then its to do with tension.

you have to balance the strings to the springs. if you want the trem to float, you kind of have to put up with it.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

nah I just have a regular strat bridge. and yeah I probably need to adjust the springs because the trem floats about at a 30 degree angle from the body, which I don't think is too good.
#10
yeah, that's quite a lot. i think you want a small gap (not certain though). though i seem to remember richie blackmore's saying in an interview that his strat trem stayed in perfect tune at a crazy angle. no idea to be honest.

wouldn't putting more springs help stiffen up the action a bit so that it stays in tune a bit better when you bend strings and retune them?

(i'm asking this because i'm having the same issue - well not really, i just want to put heavier strings on my strat lol)
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

possibly a bit. i'm not certain. that'll affect how the trem feels, though.
