Hey, just stumbled on this old thread, but if you're having issues still I'd take a look at Big Bends Nut Sauce! A little on both your bridge and nut should help with tuning stability.
I highly recommend buy some of this stuff:http://www.amazon.com/Big-Bends-Nutsauce-Guitar-Lubricant/dp/B0002GZV9M/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1456262249&sr=8-1&keywords=big+bends+nut
A little of this on the nut and a little on the saddle ELIMINATES tuning problems. It was invented by Stevie Ray Vaughn's guitar tech and Ive been using it for years on my LP traditional.
Unless you are a professional, I wouldn't recommend trying to fix the nut on your own.
You can look at it and see if there are any burrs or anything that could cause friction as the string glides through. One way to tell is this "ping" sound as you loosen the string. Or, it could just be that the nut needs some lube. You can try something like this,
Or, you can use the "lead" part of a pencil to lube the nut. I haven't tried it, but I hear it works as well.
Try using a mechanical pencil to put a little graphite in the string slots on the nut. You may want to do the same on the saddle. Or think about using a graphite nut. Or get some Big Bends Nut Sauce.. The reduced friction will likely increase your tuning stability as well.
Unfortunately this is a problem with all floating trems. I use this stuff on my pivot points, and the only time I ever have to re-tune is when I change strings (about once a month).
Lubricating the nut, either with graphite or this.
Pa que queris evertune?
Tiene sentido pa musicos que viajan harto, onda de Arizona a Florida o de Santiago a Sao Paulo, el cambio de humedad te manda a la mierda la afinacion. Varios wnes dicen eso, como Devin Townsend y creo que Ola tambien decia lo mismo.
El compromiso es que tenis un mecanismo que mantene0, cambiar calibre de cuerdas se hace un cacho. El mecanimo es parecido a un Floyd Rose, y mas encima tenis que balancear cada cuerda. Tambien dependiendo de como tengas setado el Everune va a cambiar el feeling de los bends y vibrato. Cacha esta video
Si tienes problemas de afinacion, upgradea a locking tuners y aplica lubricacion en el cejillo. Nut Sauce es mu weno.
Can i use big bends guitar nut sauce as lube? If so any recommended guide on how to do that? If not which one is generally recommended?sause
This lubricant on the bridge and nut fixed tuning stability on mine.
You might that this works a lot better than pencil graphite. NOT that there is anything wrong with that, but sometimes you just need something more.
