Hi,

I'm having a hard time keeping my D string from slipping out of tune on my JA model. I spoke with Johnny A. about this and he recomended a dab of wax. I have had it re strung twice with a dab of wax and it is still slipping.....

If anyone else has this issue and resolved it Please let me know.
much thanks,

Mickey

Could be a couple of things:
1. Make sure the new string that you have put on is properly stretched.
2. You may have a bad machine head that is slipping. (this occasionally happens with the vintage style tuners) If this is the case, I'm sure the Gibson Custom Shop would replace it for you.

I had a lot of difficulties with tuning my JA at first. The nut slots were a bit tight...had a pro set up including re cutting the nut slightly and had the Bigsby dismantled and lubed with silicone oil. I use powdered graphite in the nut slots. It's fine now. I think they need to be hammered a bit...played hard and broke in then they start to behave. Good luck! Otis
