I have locking tuners on my Parker Fly and seem to be having issues with few of them. My High E seems to have a issue. The Bottom of the locking mechanism that turns is sticking out alot more now than ever. And now I seem to be having issues with my high E staying in tune. Anyone ever had this issue?

Is it the locking mechanism that is faulty? If so you can always buy another more quality one, they are not too expensive.

Its just to much to think about what is wrong. I am just going to have to replace the locking tuner I guess. I really don't have the time to fool with it. From what it looks like though it looks like maybe the screw in the back may have been stripped but it is kind of hard to tell. I have broken 3 new strings trying to figure out what was wrong. Other than that I don't know what could be wrong. Never encountered this before.

I can't really tell unless I examine the guitar, or see some pictures, but if you are having continuous difficulties, then just swap the thing, it may be the wisest thing to do mate.

Take it to a professional to look at. A lot of places will give a quick free appraisal especially if you go to the shop where you bought the guitar. I have 2 Parker guitars and have never had this problem. The lockers are awesome.
