How does one intonate a les paul and sg for B standard and lower? I am having trouble with the Low b and g strings on my buddy's guitars, they are about 10-20cents sharp. I have the saddle(s) on the TOMs as far back as it could go, I even tried flipping the saddle(s). He's going to be using d'addario 7str set without the high e on them.
I would tell him to man up and play a real 7 but of course, its his pref.
Sometimes with LP type guitars you need to actually get a new bridge with a wider range for intonating in lower tunings. They aren't the optimal design for low tunings really
