intonation

  1. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Ordered one of these last night. I've been looking for something that does the same thing as "The Key" on my Schaller/JT-590 style bridges for fucking ever. Suppose this is a relatively new product. Haven't seen it before. Ibanez has a similar tool that looks awesome, but it's only designed for...

    ITS NOT ABOUT EVERTUNE!!!! ITS ABOUT ... BAAASS!!!! :flex::flex::flex::flex::flex: This has been an issue for many years, but sometimes I dont notice it so much. And sometimes it drives me nuts. Its like the bass cannot fucking decide if it wants to be intonated or not! But instruments have...

    Yo, The intonation on my Ibanez RG920qmz is flat, but the saddles are adjusted to their limit (I can't make the strings any shorter). What do I do? Is this a common problem? (It has an edge zero II bridge, by the way)

    I have been annoyed by the weird intonation saddle pattern on my main axe for a while now... Also the action was "a little high" so I decided to change strings, lower the action by rotating the floyd posts about 1/8 turn, and then I had to intonate again... This is how it looked BEFORE...

    I was to a PLEK tech with 2 of my guitars and while one of them became better than original (they had to reradius because the fucking fretboard was 12" but then locking nut was 14" so they made a 14-16" compound" But my main Warmoth was harder to play then when I brought it in, and the...

    I see this at times, and people say that fanned frets are "good for intonation" ... Why would that be? Wouldn't the intonation be exactly the same as a regular guitar? Just differelt scales per string :scratch: And also, wouldn't it be hard to bend some notes when the frets contradicts the...

    I've had a Strat for many years which I've always played in standard tuning. Recently I've had to tune it to drop C for something I'm doing. I've obviously gone for a heavier gauge and have adjusted the saddles for the intonation. The problem is that while the intonation is fine at the 12th...

    Hello everybody, I'm terribly sorry if this isn't the correct place to post this, but I'm new, and this is my first post. :wavey: Recently I had my guitar's whammy bar stolen while in service at my local music shop. Because of this I decided that I would (try) service my guitars myself from...

    I was just watching this clip of an old LP Junior: That bridge shouldn't really intonate well at all, but it sounds great... Is it just in the hands or am I missing something? :scratch: I have a straight bar bridge on my Gretsch (although it's floating, so I can move the whole bridge, but...

    Hi, when I got my RG2228A the intonation of the 8th string (F) was way off (12th fret fretted sharp compared to 12th fret harmonic). I just tried to adjust the intonation by moving the saddle of the 8th string back, and the intonation did get better, but it's still not 100%, but the saddle is...

    Just strung up new strings on the new RG2228A, set the intonation...problem is the low B string is pretty darn close to spot on, but the low F# is still kinda a ways off from being accurate. I can't make the saddles go back any further though, otherwise the string clamp bolts will just be in...

    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...

    I can not for the life of me get my low b to sound quite right, I've intonated using the 12th fret harmonic and 12th fret perfectly, but the low b never sounds quite right. Especially if I do drop A, it's definitely off. If i tune by ear and play where it sounds in tune, the tuners clearly show...

    is the phenomina of guitars being less in tune when chording shapes in higher registers more drastic on guitars with shorter scale lengths?

    So I'm replacing my Jackson Schaller floyd on my 89 Rhoads custom with a Schaller floyd (Stripped out the intonation set screw on a saddle on the Jackson branded Schaller). I've upgraded the saddles to be Graph Tech String Saver saddles. In doing some reading regarding saddles not going back...

    So I am staring down the neck of my Schecter and it appears to be fairly straight with maybe the slightest lick of relief. For some reason, adjusting the saddles doesn't make too much of a difference. It has the tonepros tun-o-matic bridge by the way. The low E saddle is moved all the way back...

    I'm setting the intonation one of of my RGs, and have run into a bit of a snag. The low E string's intonation is all out of whack. If I play harmonics, it's perfect - the open string, 5th fret harmonic and 12th fret harmonic are all spot-on. However, if I fret the 5th fret, or the 12th fret...

    I just strung a .068" Elixir for the Low B on my RG7620...I will be setting the intonation soon when I get a chance but before I do I had a quick question. I want to play in B standard but I also want to start playing/writing in drop A. Is my intonation going to change or go out if I intonate...
