PRS intonation question


How can you change the intonation on a hardtail PRS?? They are not adjustable in my opinion...

By shaving the tail peice. Basically you can only adjust for one string type and gauge setup style and after that your basically lost. I would suggest anyone with this tailpeice design should change it.

Look at the AVT2 Wraparound. Great alternative. Even available with locking studs. Can't be beat!

the PRS hardtail doesn't have intonation issues if you have .009/ .010 in there. PRS does offer the adjustable version of this hardtail, ask your dealer about it

I assume that the bridge is designed for 09 or 010 but I just can't imagine the intonation does not need to be adjusted over the years...

do to inconsistencyes in nut cuts, bridge length swelling and shrinking of wood, thats physically impossibly thats why we use intonation adjustabel tailpeices in the first place. One of my friends has a yamaha acoustic with an adjustable bridge and it has possibly the best overall intonation on a guitar ive ever seen

Doesn't it have two "master" allen wrench adjusters in the back behind the bolts? I think the intonation is adjustable, just not from string to string. The string to string variance is a little more pre-set. It's only way off if you use a wound G or 11-48's or something like that.

Sniper: maybe the climate plays a part. i'm putting up in an equatorial climate so i guess there's less prolonged temperature extreme. my McCarty had been in tune since day 1...

as mentioned previously, PRS offers adjustable bridges, in fact, they are default on some hollowbody PRS.
