Re: My Epiphone Out of tune.

: Well, if you're using a gig bag you're lucky any of the strings are in tune, it's too easy to bump the machine heads through a soft case like that.

: It's normal for a string to go out of tune eventually...especially if you do a lot of bending...does it stay in once you retune it?

: : Hi guy's.
: : I own a Epiphone Les Paul Standard. When I put it in the bag, and take it out on the next day, my 3rd string is a little bit out of tune. Also sometimes when I play, after playing for 5-10 min, i check the tune on my Boss GT-3 and it shows that the 3rd string is a little bit off, but if I wouldn't use that tunner, I wouldn't even hear the difference, because it's very slight.

: : So......what is going on with my guitar? :-)
: : Please help.
: : Thanks.

I have an Epiphone Les Paul Standard also. I agree with the comments on the bag. I would also get a set of good replacement tuners. My Epi was losing tune on exactly the same string, so fate, and GOD sent me to help you out. I got a set of GOTOH vintage tuners which look identical to what came on the guitar, and hold their tune with 12-54's, which these days are considered fairly big strings. Also, get yourself some replacement pickups. The difference in sound will amaze you. I got a Gibson 500T for the bridge with 496R for the neck. These are very hot. Breeze through the guitar pickup comments on for a lot of good information. Your tastes might run towards something else.
