I'm not smart about this stuff, so sorry if I sound stupid. Sorry about the wall of text.. Anyway, I have an 80s L2000 and every time I string it up with a set of strings with the silk ends behind the nut, it falls off. I'll string it up, start to tune it too pitch, get it near pitch..then it starts to slide out of the tuning peg and eventually pops out. The part of the string that bends into the tuner shrinks about 80% of what it's supposed to be. I've put these strings on other basses, so I'm confused. It works fine with strings without the silk ends. I've had this problem before with every string, and I was told to tighten something in the back. It fixed it, but its back again. Maybe I'm stringing this one wrong, I'm not sure. Has anybody else had this problem with an instrument? How have you gone about fixing it? Any help is greatly loved. I'm talking to my tech about it tomorrow, but figured I'd get some more opinions P.S. I apologize for posting this in the wrong forum earlier. So please accept it, to whichever mod I just created work for because I have no clue how to delete a post.
