Okay. This guitar is about to get traded or thrown in the street. This dang thing won't stay in tune to save it's life. Literally, I tune one string and the next one goes OUT of tune. It's dumbfounding. I've already removed the tremelo bar from the bridge. I haven't added extra springs - yet. The bridge plate is not laying flat against the body, either. This is an MIM Deluxe model.... Probably bought it 10 years ago. Life's just too short. This is the dumbest guitar I own. What's going to fix this? Sorry for the rant, but I think it's extra springs, or just swapping out the bridge for a hard tail and screwing the damned thing to the body. Not sure. I have a 1992 Korean Squire Strat that I beat the crap out of, refinished, beat the crap out of it some more, and it stays in tune better than this guitar. It has the sunburst finish and gold hardware, and all that means crap if it can't stay in freaking tune from one string to the next. Okay, rant over. I want to save this guitar, but it's about one drunken lunch hour away from getting traded.
