hi, recently got a new parker nitefly(yeahh). Anyways since its 13 years old i want to know some tips regarding its sperzel tuners(that orignially came with the guitar). Any tips would be very helpfull. The tuners are still good but A and low E string are still going out of tune(more then i would like). General there pretty good but when i use the vibratto it goes out of tune.

Ps, i know that the tremelo puts the guitar out of tune, but i dont do dive bombs or anything too bad, i use it more as a bigsby thing.

thx

I'm no expert but if the guitar is going out of tune, it could be the nut as well, you may want to add some graphite on the nut for those strings so that it doesn't catch

Yeah, check the nut like inertia said and also change the strings if you haven't done that in awhile. If those dont' help, then the tuners may be too old and aren't working properly.
