Why Les Pauls Don't Stay in Tune!

Recommended Posts

Saw this video and I'd appreciate comments about it... goes deep because it's related to headstock angle fabrication.

i could be wrong, but i thought the headstock angle was 17°. also i noticed he didn't mention the problem that comes from too many winds on the tuner.

 

he's not wrong, BUT

 

i don't have those issues with mine BECAUSE

 

i keep the nut in proper shape, and use a quality material (graphite works for me)

 

i lube the nut with pencil lead & vaseline every other time when i change strings

 

i keep fresh strings on my guitar, and ensure that it's set up properly, and keep the nut clean and free of debris. if i ever find a roller nut to fit my LP i will install it with a quickness, with a set of locking tuners.
