    I have had constant issues with keeping my ce24 in tune. Fresh strings work for a few weeks, then it seems as if I'm constantly chasing things. I've tried multiple approaches to stringing, but still have issues. Just wanted to see if anyone has any tricks or methods to stringing up a ce24.

    No wraps around the post. Pull string through. Pull it tight. Lock screw finger tight. Use a coin to give it another quarter turn.

    Maybe a little nut sauce, or graphite in the nut slots.

    If your guitar was new , it will get better just play it hard and use the trem to the extreme and in my experience it will settle in.

    Plus one on Bodia's Comments. I use the Rene Martinez Graph-it-all product on the saddles and string slots and stretch the strings a bit. It works on my CE24 and I am not necessarily gentle on it.

    Graphite from a very common pencil always help to master tuning stability issues (in nut grooves and saddles)
