I've recently encountered a problem with my 2016 Gibson Les Paul 50's Tribute. A few weeks ago I replaced my set of Ernie Ball 11's with a set of 10's. All was going well until I went to tune the high e string. Once it had reached about the C or D below in tune, it began to de-tune rapidly. Tuning it up again, it reached the same point before letting out a ping noise, and instantly tuning right down again. I was using the G force electric tuner to tune, which I though might be a little fast for the fresh string.
I threaded a new string and wound up the string manually, and slowly, but the same problem occurred. I tried again later using another new string, with no luck.
I believe the string is coming unwound at the end where it threads around the little ring, as I can't imagine what else would cause it to de-tune so quickly. Any help with what might be wrong would be much appreciated. The guitar has a G force tuners, titanium nut, titanium saddles and a stop bar tailpiece
