Hi everyone, I have an 83 thunder 1a six string, and the g machine head is flipping out of tune, is there a way of tightening this up at all ?
Or do I need another one?
Cheers.

What works for me is tightening the screw on the edge of the button, though not too much, and tightening the nut that holds the collar in place.

It's always the G string.
At least, that's what she said! Slipping machine head thunder 1a Laughhard
