Simple question...
My tuning pegs have a little play in them when I am tuning my guitar and trying to get it just right on the electronic know the spot where it is not flat or sharp and the light is just right...
can I adjust the I need to take them to someone to adjust or do I need to replace them...
I have a PRS with locking tuners so I believe they are a decent quality....only thing I don't love about this guitar....
thanks as usual for all the people doing the hard work and helping me out

Sorry Pistol,
No help here, I would think however that on a PRS, those tuners should be superior quality. But what do I know. Very good tuners can be purchased and are pretty simple to replace, match the screw holes, perhaps even change the gear ratio to make it more of "fine tune".
I hadan old LP at one point in time and on the bridge, I replaced the tailpiece with fine tuners... Worked quite well however my play style tended to hit the tuners and wack me out of tune.

I don't think it is the tuners, I think the string catches in the nut , and then slips, I would recommend putting some graphite under the strings in the nut, easilty done with a pencil tip.
