i got a prs custom 22 yesterday.

sounds great, looks great and feels great.

only thing is that it doesnt seem to stay in tune well at all. any idea why this is so? doubt its a fault with the guitar but what can i do to fix it?

Did you put new strings on it? If you replaced them, or if the tech replaced them before you bought it, they're probably just stretching out. If it continues longer than a week, then it could be your tuners.



BTW, Congrats, I would love to have a PRS

Are they fresh strings?

I would also look at the tuning peg, to see that the string is wrapped at least 3 times. If it doesn't, then you can get the same issue with keeping in tune.
PRS SAS or Gibson LP Standard+

Idk...My PRS does that too SOMETIMES. Like out of the blue the G will just drop a quarter step. It used to do it all the time, but I got it set up. Now it only does it on rare occasions.

no. they are old strings. would this be a problem? what about it not having a set up? could that be part of the problem?

Could be that they're just too old. Try replacing the strings, and give them a few days to stretch out. Also, if you're not comfortable doing a setup yourself, definitely take it to a tech and get a full setup done.

If it is becoming a problem, don't talk to us. Talk to PRS.

They are more than happy to deal with such a thing.

that was my plan. i just dont know whether something else that i dont know about is the cause of the problem. (seeing that i dont know this guitar like the back of my hand just yet)

I'd also suggest that it could be the nut 'catching' the strings. Try some GHS graphitALL lube where the strings go through the nut & that might fix it.

Change your strings while you're at it too!

This won't do anything. These guitars come with high-quality locking tuners. Can't get much better.

the nut is supposedly 'self lubricating'
