Many are the different factors which will determine if you guitar will stay in tune or not (especially if you're using a tremolo), among which the condition of nut and bridge saddles, the condition of strings and tuning gears, and how strings are mounted.

As a guitar repairer and builder I noticed that often musicians suffering of tuning problems simply don't mount the strings properly.

Here is a video which explains how to mount strings properly on a fixed bridge guitar. This may seem a known and simple task but I am sure you will discover some new useful things here.

In the manuals section of this site you will also find many interesting tutorials with pictures and photos on how to mount strings correctly and setup your instrument.

Following these simple instructions will dramatically improve your tuning and playing.
