Question about Music
You might try tightening up the phillips head screw on each head a bit (not too much). If the strings continue to fall out of tune, you may also want to be sure the pins at the bridge are well secured.

By now you may have solved this problem, but maybe this information is still helpful:
What you are essentially recreating is a tenor guitar. Many companies make tenor guitar strings. I would suggest D'Addario J66 80/20 Bronze Tenor Guitar Strings (10-32). I've done this a few times and it is quite fun and makes for an interesting travel guitar.
Have a blast!

This will help you tune your gtr. Tuners have 3 lights 2 red and 1 green. Green is in the middle of the 2 lights. You may all so have a meeter with a number calibration. Dead center of the meeter is the # 440. 440 is what is what is called standard pitch When you tune up start with the 6 string low E. the biggest string A 5th ,D 4th G 3rd B 2nd E 1ft. Looking at the red lights when the lite on the left is red you string is flat adj. by tightening . To much and the right lite glows , your sharp, back off the tention untill the green lite glows and the meeter nedal is at 440. . Thats is what you want 440 and green. Do this to the rest and you will be at standard pitch. Good luck, keep on rockin in the free world DFD please rate me TKU

well i hope you've figured it out by now, it's a really cool looking tuner and i love it. but if you are still having problems...
the switch on the left side: OFF, ON, LMP (ON with a little light so you can see in the dark)
The number and letters you see across the top of the interface indicate which string it is tuning to. 6E is the low E string (the thickest one) and 1E is the high E string (the thin one on the bottom of the guitar), i've seen many people get confused when they've tuned those two.
You can leave the tuner in auto and it will pick up what string you are trying to tune. but if you are having problems getting the correct string or whatever the case is, you can switch to manual mode. click the only button on the tuner and the specific string will light up on the interface.
If you press and hold the button, the tuner will go into flat mode, tuning all the strings flat.
once you have the right string and you're tuning it in, you want the needle to be centered.
that's pretty much it. enjoy!

While the setting is shown in the display, press the CALIB key to
set the calibration.
Each time you press the key you will cycle through the following

1: 441 Hz 3: 443 Hz 5: 445 Hz 9: 439 Hz
When you have made the desired setting, wait approximately two
seconds without pressing the key.
The indication in the note display will blink three times, and the
calibration setting will be completed. You will then return to tuning
Just do it and stop on the 440 one.
