guitar is tuned but sharp at the 12th , move bridge forward or back ???
Are you using the Harmonic not a fretted note?
Backwards, make the string length a little longer!
Ooh John beat me!
thanks guys !!! and HNY
Yes, like mentioned here: Back. The string length between the 12th and the bridge needs to be a bit longer.
Wait should we link her to the Tuning Video from the other thread?..
Ha ha, that would be pretty mean......
i watched that clip ,,, the guy did have some good points i thought , anyway , set the intonation on my Scotty special ,,, spot on and sounds killer
I always remember it because Flat and Forward begin with an F...if its flat go for-
ward with the bridge, if sharp go back...
That's how I remember it: Fret - Flat - Forward:
i.e. if the fretted note is flat, move the saddle forward towards the neck.
If it's sharp, do the opposite.
