One of my pet peeves! I don't want to beat that old horse but once again I am having tuning problems. I just got a John Lennon LE Casino. A beautiful guitar. Always wanted one like John's. It's a 1999 early numbered guitar. It has hardly been played all these years, and still had the original strings on it. I did a re-string with D'Addario EXL110s . Kept the winds to a minimum, I even got the under the string and over thing as per Gibson guitar stringing guidlines. Checked the nut for any string binding. (none shown) Lubed the nylon saddles and nut with a dab of Big Bends Nut Sauce. Stretched the strings for a couple days and I'm still having the typical 1st, 2nd, and 3rd strings go out of tune. I want to enjoy this bad boy but this constant tuning is bringing me down I must say! Now, I also have a Vinetto DC55 that as far as I'm concerned is without a doubt the easiest guitar to stay in tune that I have yet encountered! I bend the strings, I use the bar, and it justs seems to always tune easily and ring clear presice A chords, C chords etc. It's amazing. I guess I am asking if it's in the manufacture, or is it in the setup that makes a guitar tuneable? Any Ideas??? Maybe I should pm Vince and see if he can tune up my Casino like he does his Artifacts!
