Why does my guitar go out of tune so often?
The strings are not exactly new, but I have never had a problem with them before. It seems like I'm always having to tune my guitar when I want to play it.
The Ibanez V300 Acoustic Guitar from the 1980's series. A six stringed acoustic guitar with symmetric head.
Tighten your tuning knobs, they might be loose causing the strings to go out of tune. Also replace your strings every 3 months if you play everyday. I personally like DR Strings, they stay in tune and play great. Plus last long if you take care of them. Also check your neck, it might need adjusted. Same with the guitars intonation. I would take your guitar to a professional guitar repair shop and not Guitar Center for those jobs.
Tension stretches strings. Part of leaning to play is tuning. Good musicans often tune stringed instruments.
Cheap strings and instruments do tend to have this problem more than high quality.
Rapid changes in temperature and humidity can cause this also.
