    Also, I noticed that most probably due to the 10-15 celsius difference between my body/hand temperature and the room temperature, when I pick up my guitars, they are a few cents sharp. I play them for a few minutes and they are perfectly in tune, the way I put them away after the previous session. So your problem might be similar. And as Gtrjunior said: the first thing you do should be to check the tuning. I even check them before putting the away. That way I can monitor if anything happens to them during the night...
    My band rehearses at my house in the basement but I generally keep my guitars upstairs on the main floor of the house (I have a little computer/guitar room).
    My guitar is always out of tune when I first go downstairs for rehearsal. It’s just the change in environment even though the basement is heated/air conditioned)
    Once it’s gets acclimated it holds tune.

      The very first thing I do when I pick up my guitars is to give the tuning a quick check/tweak.
      No, just seems odd that its always the same three strings, and they are always the same degree out of tune. That's all I was getting at.

        I hear you. My LP seems to always have the same strings go out as well. I think it’s just a LP thing...lol
        I have one of those string butler things on one of my Pauls and I does help quite a bit. But still, I need to tune it regularly. It doesn’t quite “solve” the issue.

          I think you're right. I saw this thing talking about LP headstock design and it's effects on strings and it also indicated issues staying in tune. Mystery solved I suppose.

          Thanks everyone for your feedback and insight.

            I know right!?

            All of my guitars have Floyds because I like that they are always in tune.
