sonny Posted May 18, 2004 Report Share Posted May 18, 2004 OK, First off I apologies if this issue has been covered many times before, I had a quick browse through but just wanted some clarification. I have a Jackson DKMGT. I had an EMG 81 and 85 set installed and am very happy with the guitar itself. Its got a fixed bridge, strings thru body and standard Jackson sealed tuners. She sits in Drop-C tuning, I use D'addario Chromes (10-48), however these require a higher tension than standard 48's and on previous guitars (Ibanez RG470) they have stayed nicely in tune. It does not go wildly out, but just seems to hover to sharp or to flat, it will settle down after a bit, but when I pick her up after an hour or so break, she’s very slightly out again. I have done a bit of reading and people suggest using some kind of lube on the nut, which I am going to give a go. I am also considering the following mods to help make her as stable as possible during gigs: Sperzel locking Tuners Graphite Nut Graphite saddles Any thoughts on these? Is there something else I could be missing? Many thanks for your time. Sonny www.stalefish1.com Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
