Okay, so I went and see a guitar tech just in case if something was wrong because of the unparallel plate, but he looked at it and said it was fine. biggrin.gif

Thanks for all of the help again!


Okay, in case anyone will have this kind of problem (with the plate not being parallel..) in the future - an update:

The guitar tech didn't took off the back plate, so he didn't really inspect it. Then after awile I took it off and when I screwed one side counterclockwise I realized the plate wasn't moving (wasn't getting even more unparallel) - so that screw was so out of the hole with regards to the other, that it didn't have any affect anymore because the two screws are connected by the plate. So I just screwed it in. biggrin.gif

And after that the tuning wasn't problem anymore.

Huh, i dunno, ive never had a problem tuning the Edge III on my RG350, it seems to stay in tune pretty well once its balanced, does your guitar have locking nuts up at the head? maybe thats why i dont have a problem...

ok, idk if some1 suggested this, but are you using the correct string size? Also my old guitar would detune Very fast, but only after tuning down to B E A D F# B

Yeah, so does mine (Edge Pro), except lately it's really strange.. in the other topic. Yes, I have a locking nut. When I started this topid I didn't know it had to be (that) parallel to the body.

You can use whichever string size you want as long as the guitar is set up right. The set up on mine when I first bought it was great, except it wasn't tuned in the store (almost no guitar is) and the bridge wasn't parallel enough to the body.

But if you change string gauges, then you have to readjust the neck and the intonation, and the springs in the back of course (maybe some other things also) - it's best to tahe it to a guitar tech if you plan to do this.
