    At sunday I was in studio with my band and we recoreded some songs. I was really having problem with tune of 6th string (the fat one). It goes always off tune when I play it hard. And I can set the octaves well. I'll put video on, but probally tommorow... I really don't know what can be...

    My 2013 Core CU24 came stock with 10's, but my SE from 2010-ish came with 9's.

    John Ingram told me the same thing, particularly with the winged locking tuners.
    Tuning down to pitch cured the problem on a CE24 I used to have.

    Also, having the bridge blocked for down only can also hurt tuning stability. I've found floating PRS trems to be much more stable.
    Check that the pivot screws are aligned properly also.

    I'll try to tune down to the pitch. Should than I unblock the tremolo? What tuning do you have? I'm on drop C# ( C# G# C# F# A# D#). And last time tuning was different when I have guitar on a table and when I have it on body/legs. I just made some videos, so you can see more:
