: : How often do you guy's have to tune your bass? Mine goes *WAY* off tune in a day so I have to put it back every time I play it, is this normal?
: : Thanx!
: : Emma

: Emma, your bass shouldn't be going out of tune everyday. As Emptyeye asked: are
: you sticking it in a gig bag at night? Also, do your tuning machines have any
: play in them? Have you changed the strings? If you have, the string should go
: around the post at least twice on all the strings except the E. Twice is enough
: for the E string. Other than that, I can't think of anything else that might be
: causing the sippage of your strings.

: Let us know,
: Mickster

Yeah, I think you got it Mickster, I hadn't changed the strings but they were only twisted around the post once each, it must've been like that from when they put them on the shop So I re-did them all last night, if that doesn't help I'll have to get it looked at.
