How do you fix intonation?

My high E string's 12 fret harmonic, is like a 1/4 step off from the note played when the 12 fret is held down.

i asume you have an electric guitar. for most bridge designs, there is a screw on the back that slids the saddle back and forth. if the note is too high, tighten the screw which slids the saddle towards the rear of the guitar. this will make the string "longer" and lower the note towards the harmonic center. do the reverse if the note is fretting too low.

hey auto, finally got a Q to ask :wink:
Recently after stringing my guitar, I noticed the string was touching the first fre to the point where it wouldn't ring out clearly on the first and 5th strings, the 5th string was fixed by adjusting the height of the string (I forget what they call that, air time or something?)
Anyway, tbe first string isn't working like the 5th, I've raised it has high as it would go,  still sounds like shit. I'm using the same brand/same gauges I've always used.

have you checked the pitch of the neck? hold the guitar with the butt against your chin and look over the pickups and down the neck. how far has it bowed? sounds like it was placed in a humid area and the neck bowed a bit. check it and get back to me.

you lost a few springs that attach to the bridge from below. open up the back plate and take a look. either a few springs broke/popped loose, or the spring retainer came off. take a pick of the inside after you pull the back cavity cover off.

well, the only thing i've come up with is that possibly the strings are too tight. when i lossen them up a lot the block will go down, but of course it plays like shit...is there anything you can think of for this?

get a tuner and tune it correctly. if that doesnt work, take it to a guitar store. i've speculated all i can without holding it in my hands.

that screw in the upper left of the cavity looks like it's not even holding that plate back at all. is that screw (or both of those top two) loose or stripped from the hole?

it looks like you can add two more springs on that setup. maybe you could borrow a couple from someone and see if that helps.


p.s. automan: check out the wood i just got today (for a future project).



re: the current project
i got a seymour duncan invader bridge pickup, fishman powerbridge, and gibson stopbar. i still need to decide what i want for the neck pickup and tuners. i'd like to go with a p90, but that just seems like a horrid combo with the invader.

good eye, there. it is spalted maple.

it has been kiln dried, so it's ready and waiting on me.
soon, i'll have some more wood cut and ready as well, including the top that will go with that maple. i've got some red cedar, douglas fir, and engelmann spruce. i'm going to see which one looks best with that back/side set.

It is indeed bowed slightly upward towards the top of the neck, right around the 3rd fret.
You're good :laugh:

covering acrylic with poly is fine. i would only go poly if you wanted to save art you have painted on it. otherwise, use laquer.
