New to the Firebird V (just got me a 2010). Love the feel and sound, but having some tuning issues. I set it up how I like it, so that part is good. Intonation is great. I know I can take it sharp if I push the strings hard on the frets, but that’ll bounce back after I let go. A few big bends or smashing a few hard chords, it’s out. It just seem like the stock banjo tuners aren’t holding it in tune. Am I missing another element that may be taking it out of tune? I hear mixed reviews about the Steinberger gearless machine heads. Mostly good reviews, but I thought I’d put the direct question put there. Do Steinberger gearless tuners for Firebird V equal improved tuning stability?
